We have just returned from our second trip to Paris on air Tahiti Nui, and the only downside is their lack of an app. Otherwise, this has to be the best, least expensive flight LAX to CDG. The staff is mostly pleasant (a few exceptions) and helpful. The seats in economy are probably the best in the business. Roomy, newer...

When we first booked our trip to Bora Bora, we thought we were going to be taking a Qantas plane but later found out that it's a code share and is operated by Air Tahiti Nui. We were a bit disappointed in this since we haven't read great reviews for this airline especially for it's seats, comfort and food. Overall,...

We made that flight on September 2012 but I felt I need to give Air Tahiti a shout out if I can. Despite being the only company to make this flight, Air Tahiti Nui is givng the best service there is right from the beginning, even though there's no competition.

We decided to stop over in Tahiti on our way to catch a cruise out of Auckland, New Zealand. So, based on their lower fares, we chose this airline over the others, and are so very glad we did! The plane for this eight hour flight was well designed, with clean beautiful seats, welcoming little packets of goodies we might...

A lovely airline with excellent service, even in economy. The Airbus 340-300 is proabaly the best looking airline in service today and such a joy to get the chance to fly on one. Sadly they will be replaced by Boeing 787 soon.

When trying to book B-class from San Diego to Paris using my AA Advantage miles, I was unable to get any AA flights, so I accepted Air Tahiti Nui from LAX. I was alittle apprehensive, wondering what the service/aircraft would be like. Well, we were very, very happy with the results. The plane was spotless. The seats were easy to...

The trip to Papeete was efficient but the seats were very uncomfortable and the entertainment lacking. The stewards were lovely though. The return flight was when they really showed their shortcomings though. Our flight was cancelled with no notice. There was no communication at the airport,just a 4 hour long queue to be told our new arrangements. No organisation and...

Perfect experience. After a delay with Wow airlines was going to make us miss a wedding, we bought day-of tickets in Air Tahiti to Paris, and could not have asked for an easier, more pleasant experience. The staff everywhere from the check in to the gate to the flight were kind, accommodating, and patient. They kindly checked our bags, for...
