which side of the plane to sit on

Hi.

I am flying from Moorea to Bora Bora. Which side has the best views? Also from Moorea to Rangiroa the same question?

Thanks.

From MOZ to BOB it's best to sit on the left side of the plane, if the flight is direct (we got some awesome pictures). Sometimes the plane makes a stop in between, in which case it's better to sit on the right. Not sure about Moorea to Rangiroa.

Tahiti to Bora Bora....

Usually the left. But it really depends on the flight path the pilot takes. Sometimes the right side is better.

An ideal set up is for each of you to sit on opposite sides of the plane with a camera. Not quite as romantic that way, and one of you will miss what the other one is seeing....but, you will be able to get some pictures this way. If the plane is not full at all, this will be much easier to do.....the one on the wrong side could quickly move over to an empty seat on the right side.
