Hello all! Im a newbie here and wanted to get your input. I'm thinking of going to the Maldives for my honeymoon sometime in October 2015. I'm very new to the concept of utilizing credit card bonus miles, but I'm very interested in it. From the research I conducted, it seems like AA awards is the way to go using Etihad as the carrier. However, when I look at the dates for the award tickets, it says its all sold out. But when I look at the same trip as 2 separate one way tickets, I have alot more options. I was wondering if anyone had any other opinions or advice on which credit cards and airlines to use for this trip. . Appreciate all the help in advance! PS. I'm hoping to fly either business or first if possible. I have almost no miles in any program either.
