Read the first review. Guy gives it five stars and goes on to say how he went to a different resort after and neither the service nor the reef at Gili compared to the other resort

JFK-AUH-MLE on EY requires an overnight?

Yes.
Argh. I found a great return MLE-AUH-JFK.
Can't find anything on the outbound. I see a Thursday morning AUH-MLE. But only the Wed JFK-AUH is available (and obviously doesn't arrive on time).

ETA: Found something for the outbound on QR in J. Now for the hard part, convince the wife it's worth it to travel halfway around the world and back for 4 days/3 nights.

If you have to travel halfway around the world, you can do worse than QR J and EY F. Take advantage of the opportunity. Don't let her yank away another trip :)

@AJK, what is the contact info of your TA for the Maldives?

Sorry Mr. Chuchem. Did I offend you? I was having a conversation with AJK and therefore directed my question to him. Next time I will properly refer to him as Chuchem's TA

Just spoke to AA and they don't see availability on the AUH-JFK segment in F despite it being available in guest first on EY.com? HUCA?

Ugh. They have had some issues in the past, most recently a few weeks ago. Not a good sign. Def HUCA, but it may be out of sync again.

Rep seemed like she knew what she was doing. I'll call again on my way to work in the morning.
