Both officially crappy.

Peak time in MLE is our winter. That said, I went in May and most days were great.

flying emirates business 230,000 amex and $1400 surcharges - i know crazy but I've been wanting to fly this airline for so long - I also know you can use alaska miles but they only have with more stopovers and didn't want to spend more time traveling than i had to they also have flight that gets into dubai 7pm and leaves 3am for maldvies which gets in at 9 - have all day rather to get in at night and have to spend night before going to conrad

opened up city hilton got 2 free nights and then transferred rest of amex to cover 3 nights - staying 5 nights upgrading for 3 nights

flying home cathay pacific through china - american miles 60,000 a person i think

what do you think ?
Hope you're booked on the A380 not on the 777.

Stay at least 5 nights 6 days. As you will not fully enjoy the arrival and departure date. But I think 6 nights is the minimum!!

Shabbas ends early enough in HKG to catch a 5:50 CX 601 to MLE?  :o

Even if so, you'd likely have to overnight in MLE.

yeah.. just checked that. I meant the first flight possible. It looks like my best option is EK via DXB, that gets me in MLE at 3:00 pm.

1) Can only book that with JL, KE, or EK...
2) That eats basically a whole day.
