Air Tahiti Nui offered a package flying from LAX to PPT with a stopover at Auckland. We read that online check-in is not available so we headed to the counter as soon as we could in LA. The staff was friendly and helpful. He checked us in right away and took our bags. Our flight was 8 and 6 hours...

We took the 11:40 pm flight from LAX to PPT. The flight was a bit bumpy from LAX due to the weather in PPT. Aside from that, the flight was good and the economy seats has great legroom. FA were friendly as well.

As an international airlines, I would rate the service as below average. Perhaps its near a monopoly-like environment makes it survive. Meals were awful. On my way going to Tahiti, both meals were served cold. On my return flight, I turned on my seat's call-button light hoping to get a glass of water, and no flight attendant came by after...

Absolutely horrible experience on this airline. After a four hour delay and being told we should rework our connections ourselves with their partner airlines (American, all booked together). We finally got to LAX American had no record of our rebooked flights due to more errors on Air Tahiti's part and we were left stranded in LAX. When she tried to...

After standing in line for 2 hours to check in, we were told the plane was delayed for 4 hours which will cause us to miss our flight from LAX to ATL. I understand things come up but this was so poorly handled. We were not offered anything more than a food voucher for a concession in the airport .......

First of all my husband and I will definitely fly with Air Tahiti Nui again mainly because everything from the welcome to the food to the cleanliness......I could go on and on! The main reason and only reason we chose this airline was because we could fly from LA to Paris with our small dog in the cabin with us...

We had more than 5 hour delay. They did not give any information for the reason of the delay. We had to wait at the airport where there is not much space to sit for hours. The flight was not bad. The seats were comfortable. But the aircraft was very old. The legroom was good enough.

It was nice to fly on an airline that still has a food service. We had a light dinner which I could not finish and a breakfast a hour or so before arrival. Was kind of tight in the seat but I am only 5'2" so was not a problem for me. They also had pillows, blanket, socks and eye...

It was a great 8 hour flight from Papeete to Los Angeles and the crew from Air Tahiti Nui was very friendly and helpful from their Customer Service Line, to Check in and Flight Attendants. It is hard to find courteous services while flying nowadays, so I was very happy with this experience. Flight left on time and it was...
