A good sale to The Maldives. This is the cheapest we have seen The Maldives in Business from the United States.

Qatar Airways is currently running a special promo because of Alaska Air joining the Oneworld Alliance. There is a $550 off Business Class promo code available for most fares. The promo code is MPMEMBERS

Pricing is as follows:

  • Washington D.C. [IAD] – $2,296 ($1,746 after discount)

If you want to use the American Express IAP discount and use Membership Rewards points, this is $2,109 or 211K points. With 35% back for those with a Business Platinum, its better than straight up redemption on any award program.
