Anyone been to Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa?
OWB upgrade is $60 per night, but some online reviews preferred the regular villa.

Just booked with UA, 38.5k one way on TK metal.
Better than AC/TK pricing.
That's really not bad. How much in taxes?

Try multi city with shabbos in Dubai. How about something like this? https://www.google.com/travel/flights/s/ChCda37UdC6FFJrW9

Thanks
Looked at all the options  :) At some point I'll settle for something
I think I was secretly hoping Ethiad would increase the frequency by then

January
chose an longer stopover in IST in case of flight delay/cancellation, don't want to risk it

last time we went, the 2014 war broke out, and we had to run into the bomb shelter by the check in counter. Had to run to the flight in IST in order to catch the connecting flight
