We spent 1 month and an half in French Polynesia e we travelled around 11 islands. We have visited Marquesas islands, Tuamotu islands and Leeward islands and took more than 15 flights with Air Tahiti. Well, we are so speechless that we don't even know from where we can start this opinion. 1. The prices are really high for the...

We flew Air Tahiti three times - Papeete to Bora Bora; Bora Bora to Raiatea and Raiatea to Papeete. You fly on ATR 42-600 (48 passengers) or ATR 72-600 (68 passengers) planes which are twin turboprops with the wing over the top of the fuselage. All fights are open seating, and you will receive a cup of water or juice...

Sit on the left side of the plane. Great views. Quick 7 mins. Easy check in and security. Don’t stress out. You don’t need to be there early. Tahiti tours will get you there in plenty of time. I was freaked out that we would not have enough time, but they have this figured out, even when you make multiple...

Flight delayed 4 hours. Then delayed again. No updates on the app, email or text. Business class upgrade was lost. Air Tahiti lounge has the door locked and appears to be closed. You need to call the intercom several times before they will open the door. The lounge has passengers that slept the night because there flight was cancelled. My...

Great flight from Bora Bora to Papeete! I love how relaxing the travel is in Bora Bora. No airport security and long lines. Check in was quick and boarding as well. I highly recommended sitting on the left side on the way to Bora Bora and on the right side leaving Bora Bora, you will get amazing views!

WOW!!!!! That all I can still say about the flight to Bora Bora. The scenery is BEUTIFUL! The pilot flies over the bungalow and the colors are blue are INCREDIABLE! Check in at the airport was very smooth and stress free. Coming from the US it is completely different. You arrive to the airport, check in when the window opens,...
