I should clarify.  Spent half hour on phone with AA unsuccessfully and searched united.com for 15min.  I feel rusty at this game.

Good availability on Turkish and searchable on united.

ugh so there goes that- gotta cancel the trip
https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/alert/zika-virus-maldives

There are not bugs on the hotel islands as they spray constantly.  Just don't do any tours of local islands.  People don't realize that Zika can essentially be an STD so even if there are cases brought from elsewhere that hasn't been an issue of a bug transmission to tourists.  They have irradicated Malaria in the Maldives, which is very hard.  Don't plan or cancel trips based on hysteria.

There are flights on DL starting at 40k in economy, any way to ditch the $100+ fees per person?

Interesting. Looks like it changed since I got back.

Per the CDC, most vacation destinations (including thailand, phillipines, vietnam, indiahave risks of Zika). Even texas is on their list. Personally, I'd stay away from central/south american zika hotspots, but not the rest unless there are a significant number of reported cases.

Apparently they are canceling tickets for a full refund, or giving you the option to keep them and pay the difference.

It's a far away destination from the US so expect to pay whether in points or in dollars.

Where did you see that?

I was told that by the phone rep. It may not be true. I personally was looking to cancel so it worked out.

So people who do go down there, are paying out of pocket Or using points? Is there a CC i can sign up to in the next few months to use towards airfare?

Ah ok. I might have to cancel as well. Wife isn't too happy about having to fly economy for so long. Funny coming from her since she used to say why fly in biz when you can fly 2 legs in coach for the same price. That all changed when she took her first J flight...  ::)
