LAX-MLE One World

Any suggestions on the quickest way to get from LAX to Male, Maldives using the One World Alliance?

What have you found when looking?
Just time?
Cost not a consideration?

The Oneworld options are not great.

On the outbound the quickest is LAX-LHR/LGW-MLE on certain days, but obviously suboptimal with the airport change. LAX-DOH-CMB-MLE is a couple of hours slower

On the return MLE-HKG-LAX looks to be fastest

Perhaps look at doing a stopover somewhere (e.g. London, Hong Kong, Doha) to help ease the schedule issues and break up the journey

Best bet is a one-stop through HKG. Next would probably be through LON, but with a LHR-LGW transfer.

I think the best option would be LAX-DOH-MLE on QR - and book into the in-airport hotel for the layover period.
