I flew down on the A300 last October. We were delayed 24 hours as Bush & Blair started a fight in Afghanistan.
Anyway. Last year the 300 left at 21:30 and the 330 at 23:00 but things have changed this year. When we arrived the A330 was already there and an Air Europe 777 was also on the apron.
If your not already get yourself a transfer with Maldives Air Taxi who operate Twin Otter amphibians. What an experience, friendly guys to.
Your bags will be X-Rayed on arrival to check for Booze, Porn, Pork and Religous idols. (jewelry OK ie cross on a chain etc.) Don't forget to respect that they are a muslin country.
