My son wants to go to the Maldives (from NYC) on his honeymoon. He says that he can fly there on *alliance via Europe. I say he's got to fly via Asia to keep the mileage redemption rate reasonable. He wants to fly on a saver business award. Who's right? I recall reading that once you get to the airport in Maldives, it's very expensive to transit between the islands. Is that correct?
