AJK - you had no problems going into Dubai or Maldives ? I have american passport with some Ben Gurian stamps in it - also nervous about them asking about teffilin ?

How many times are you going to ask the same question?

going to maldives in a few months - jfk - dxb-mle - not leaving dubai airport - does mle care if you have israeli stamps in your passport ?

another q - says online maldives very strict on customs and other religions articles - any problems with teffilin ?

It's pretty simple, y'all. No pork, no porn, and no alcohol. Those are the rules.

Not bad... but you could of sell 120k amex for $1800 and book direct a OWB for 2 nights...

How much did you pay for the upgrade? Can you apply HH cert from the CC to any day, or just weekends? Also, do you need availability?

Not very hard when you remember the answer the very exact question, lots of times to the same person who asked it again. Had it yesterday in another thread.

Probably not, they operate only from sunrise to sunset. On their website they write to arrive in MLE no later than 3:30 if you want to fly same day.

Do you research that everywhere you go? I thought it was just assumed that Coke is OK everywhere

I would recommend bringing some small bottles of your own anyway, unless you enjoy paying $6.50 for a 300ml bottle. :o

Many makolets are now selling little 3-packs of 250ml coke bottles for roughly 3 NIS per bottle.
