Late August.  I'm you're polar opposite extreme and booked flights basically the first week they came available a year out!
I just held flights one year out as soon as the calendar opened for Chanukah in the Maldives. Have outbound confirmed JFK-AUH-MLE-AUH in J. Need to wait one more day before the AUH-JFK becomes bookable on AA.

Thinking of a day trip to MLE, worth it? What to do if not staying in a hotel?

Not worth it.
There is nowhere to go if not staying in a hotel...Male is not a place to just hang out

I didn't mean specifically MLE, meant Maldives as a whole. And I think I decided for it at the end

Maybe there are diving trips that you can take straight from MLE...

You can do that on points? Maldivian Air flights are a fortune...

I (seems wrongly) assumed that there were still flights from CMB to GAN and figured they would be around the $100 that flights to MLE are

JFK-DXB-MLE-DXB-JFK RT with EK F via JAL is 155k RT + no YQ it seems. 125k SPG gets you a RT with EK F. Cool!
