For me it was a no brainer. My end destination is SEA. The LAS flight is MLE-DXB-SEA-LAS, so I'll just drop the last leg.

Be careful. Dropping of segments may incur penalty from what I heard. You may want to check T&C of EK.

If you book by segment, you can get a layover in Dubai. I booked Male-Las Vegas for $135, including a 3-day layover.

Vegas routings are via Boston or Seattle.

If it is the last leg, what can they do to you?

I'd hang tight on booking anything that's not refundable for a few days...if this one is honored, I'd be surprised.

Got the e-tix and confirmations on both, hoping for a pleasant surprise but yes, excellent advice. Thx.

Major thanks to the OP on this one. Picked up enough to go back and forth a few times. Was set to book some shorter legs (like MLE-DXB for 88 r/t) but looks like it just died?

It's dead. Google has MLE-RNO for $112, but EK's site lists $1864.
