Travelling with twin 2 year old children is very hard at the best of times - let alone trying to do my best to keep them quiet so as not to inflict annoyances on other travellers... I travel around the world monthly and the Air hostesses I experienced on this flight were the rude, obnoxious and straight up useless in...

Very disappointed in business class for the money. Seats are incomfortable and dont fully recline to make a decent bed. No individual tvs. Staff seems pleasant but comfort is more important to me. Coffee was good along with breakfast.

We have flown with Air Tahiti Nui last tuesday from Auckland to Papeete. Firstly let us said that the fact that the Airline, despite the late arrival of Qantas Flight from Sydney, decided to wait the guests, were really appreciated. Definitely for my flight.experience it would be more difficult to re arrange all passengers rather than wait, but from a...

Not a lot of options to travel Los Angeles - Papeete - Los Angeles. Air Tahiti Nui's current aircraft are four old Airbus A340s (we were told that new B787s are on order), and the age is showing! Seats are uncomfortable, with plastic fittings breaking up. We managed to get a bulkhead seat, which gave us a little more legroom...

Business Class SYD-AKL 31/7/2018 I am a frequent traveller and this business class cabin is not what Air Tahiti Nui advertises and one of the worst. The seats are old and very dated, material on the seat was torn and entertainment is really poor. Food service was strange too. We received a tray of food that included our entree and...

Business class: seats very old, broken, dug into my legs the whole 8 hour flight. Food inedible. Horrible experience. Plane was very old and did not look like pictures on the website. Take Air France instead. A dream plane. I cancelled my air Tahiti nui plane back to USA to avoid this torture. Air France was a dream...the best. Air...

This was our first trip overseas, and what a pleasant surprise! From the pleasant boarding experience, the colors of the plane, the roomy seats in economy, the trip was a delight. We were served two full meals, each seat had seatback screens with power outlets, received blankets, slippers, ear plugs and a face mask. Would definitely recommend, and fly again....

8 hr flight was long but bearable. Seats were just okay. Food was not that good. Attendants did a good job for what they were faced with. Return trip was worse. No video screen nor reading light due to system failure.
