Anyone know the time zone difference between Conrad and Male? I've heard 1 hour ahead and 1 hour behind. So confused.
Anyone know from experience?

Is 90k in F to AUH and 17.5k in Y to MLE. Was told not one ticket.


Will Citi free nights count towards 5th night free?

MLE is the same region as AUH, so as long as it's a published routing, then it should price out.

Multiple AA reps were pricing it as two awards. Will they refund the difference?

It's priced as two awards if layover is longer the 23hrs.
I booked EY Biz with AA pts, JFK - AUH - MLE for 67.5k pts pp.

Did you give them the flight #'s? That usually helps

What was the reason they gave you?

It's priced as two awards if layover is longer the 23hrs.
I booked EY Biz with AA pts, JFK - AUH - MLE for 67.5k pts pp.
My layover is less than 23 hours and so was YD's...
