Flew back from holiday. Seated in 24a and b which was good. Seats a tad cramped. Inflight Entertainment had a lot of old movies and not a huge selection. The games were entertaining though. The A340 is looking a little tired. The cabin crew didn't seem very engaged. What surprised me, as a FA myself, is that there was no...

I'll give a very honest and unbiased review here with all things considered. Please see my many TripAdvisor reviews for good reads on my travel experiences! https://www.tripadvisor.com/members/Erin_leigh79 This was the first part of our three country trip: Tahiti (Moorea), New Zealand, and finally Australia. This flight was booked through Qantas who codeshare with Air Tahiti. So, the flight from LAX...

Rating is for booking policy and reservation customer service. Booked a "codeshare" flight through Quantas, on Air Tahiti Nui (ATN) aircraft. I called ATN and reserved my seats, specially requesting window seats SEVERAL MONTHS in advance. To our surprise, our seats were moved to middle aircraft row seating and on our final leg, the very last row, least amount of...

Booked through AA and unable to get seats assigned ahead, easy check in at LAX but very poor lounge so went to wine bar to relax before boarding. Friendly staff on board, not very comfortable seat and limited food choices but nice even if small portions. Found nice wine but after maybe 2 hours told service had completed and we...

Air Tahiti Nui is scheduled to teceive 4 new Boeing 787 Dreamliners in 2018. For now, we flew to Tahiti on holiday on their extremely tired and uncomfortable A340-300. Heres our experience. Flight took off on time. Boarding was efficient (they load from back to front (not by stupid 'zones') Thats about where most of the good things ended. Seats...

We have flown ATN for +/-15 years and in that time ATN has not spent a cent on plane interiors😖 Our "Business" class seats were worn, torn, and broken😳 To show how old they are they had ASHTRAYS😳 The staff operating and serving fliers were great but the cabins are horrible😖

We flow with Air Tahiti Nui during our honeymoon. We took four planes with them and it was the worst experience of our lives. The planes were not appropriate for such long trips (from Auckland to Tahiti and from Tahiti to Los Angeles). The staff on board and at the check in was rude and unqualified. The lady at the...

Well, where do we start. Admittedly we flew Emirates from Brisbane to Auckland, before flying on to Tahiti, so going from A380 to the A340-300, there was always going to be an element of 2nd best, but really. We were headed to Bora Bora, and the plane's name was "Bora Bora". Good omen I thought. Firstly, we had 12a &...
