I flew from Papetee to Tokyo with Air Tahiti Nui, and flight TN78. This was an old plane. Air Tahiti Nui really should upgrade their fleet. This had a n entertainment system that you barely could watch. On a 12 hour flight that is really bad. The screen was the size of a bigger iphone, and the quality so bad...

My husband and I flew air Tahiti to Tahiti for our honeymoon. Boarding was an absolute mad house. No organization whatsoever. These seats were some of the most uncomfortable seats we have experienced during a flight. We were very disappointed for an international flight to have these types of seats. The plane home was even more worn out. The TV...

Staff are calm, caring and attentive. It is not the most fancy airlines but it is safe and comfortable. I slept fine in the seat. y onlyM advice is to not have the dinner. Have your food before the flight. Go to sleep right away. I fly business class a lot for work on long haul flights. I didn't see...

Return flight to LAX was a newer plane, strange seating configuration in rear where tray could not be let down because it blocked the aisle. terrible food. Example: a deliberately cold chicken burrito served for dinner. Mine had a large bone in it (Something like a knee bone if...

Before committing to a Cosco package to Bora Bora with friends I read the reviews that suggested the Business class seats weren’t worth the money. The economy seats were described as typical and the food as decent. For future travelers this was NOT my experience. The economy seats have the least padding of any I’ve sat on and the food...

Air Tahiti Nui is definitely a bargain airline but I thought it was well worth the price I paid. I had a non-stop flight from Los Angeles to Paris, and was provided two meals on board. The food was average airline food (though I will say the breakfast was quite good). They also had complimentary drink service several times throughout...

Flew with Air Tahiti Nui as part of a code share with Qantas. Boarding was fine and on time. The seats seemed on the small side but a complimentary comfort kit was a nice touch. Food was ok but only one drink was offered with food. The in-flight entertainment though was a relic from the distant past. I can’t remember...

Outbound to Paris: The plane arrived on time, however, there was almost an hour delay before boarding. There were no announcements or communication of any sort about the delay. Economy class seats were fairly comfortable, the staff friendly and the food edible. The return to LAX on TN7 was uneventful. This is not an airline I've flown before, but it...
