Would you ever pay $500 for a flight that has no set time for departure, lasts only 45 minutes, and is piloted by a barefoot captain? What if I added that the plane only holds 16 people and takes off and lands in water?
Before you take your $500 sea plane ride to your Conrad Maldives bungalow, the luxury (or misery) begins at the Conrad Maldives Airport Lounge. Perhaps it is called the Seaport Lounge. My experience at the lounge was far different than my companion's.
