Initially I was a bit apprehensive about my air ticket purchase, as it was my first time traveling on Air Tahiti Nui, but I must say that I was taken aback by the hospitality and travel facilities. Although there was some delay during the takeoff, we all had a very memorable trip, and I intend to travel with Air Tahiti Nui again.
I was traveling for business, and booked my air ticket at the last minute using the Air Tahiti Nui online booking system. I was slightly nervous about whether my air ticket was booked correctly, because I did not receive a confirmation email or text message. But the moment I reached the airport and explained my situation, the staff worked everything out. Full marks.
