Update – thanks to FrequentMiler – here are some more cities this fare works TO (some One-way, some Round Trip):
Tampa, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Detroit, Frankfurt, Manchester, Geneva, Stockholm, and Vienna.
Emirates has some incredible sales from Male, Maldives to several destinations right now.
These fares are loaded until November 30th and available almost any day. There might be more destinations.
I really like the main island Male (I prefer it to many of the resort islands) but the choice is yours.
To get to Male you can use miles – American Airlines AAdvantage likely has the best offer on Etihad and Qatar Airways (the latter has a A350 wide body jet flying most days now).
Now there is a chance that these fares will be cancelled. Keep holding off making other plans for now (or claim them using your credit card insurance) if you really have to book now.
Another strategy if you are already in the Maldives is to book for tomorrow or the day after and just ‘risk it’ – this usually works.
