Air Tahiti Nui (TN) has done a lot of upgrading to their service since their new Dreamliners have been delivered. Still an A340 or 2 flying, but those are being phases out soon. Beside the obvious choice going to Tahiti, from Los Angeles customers, they make a good and economical option for flying to Paris CDG as well.

Air Tahiti Nui 787 business class bottom line:
Having flown Air Tahiti Nui’s old business class, I can say that their new business class experience represents a huge improvement.
While I wouldn’t call their new business class cutting edge, it’s a solid product, especially given that they fly to a leisure destination with limited competition in most markets.
Personally, I appreciated the abbreviated meal service on this fairly short overnight flight, and found the food quality to be good. The service was friendly, though unmemorable. And I liked the amenities they had.
I’d say their biggest room for improvement comes with their limited entertainment selection, and also their outrageous wifi pricing, which doesn’t seem to me like it would be maximizing revenue for them.
But all things considered I give Air Tahiti Nui’s new business class a big thumbs up.
