Fiji Airways is the flag carrier of the island nation of Fiji. It has been in operation under this name since 1951. There was an earlier, failed attempt to form a Fiji Airways in 1933. Fiji Airways’ history began with Katafaga Estates, a company founded in 1947 by Harold Gatty, an Australian pilot and navigator christened “The Prince of Navigators” by Charles Lindbergh himself. Fiji Airways is headquartered at Nadi International Airport in Nadi, Fiji, the main international hub for all flights to and from Fiji. It also has a subsidiary, Fiji Link, which only flies domestic routes within Fiji.

Fiji Airways offers Business Class and Economy Class air tickets. Fiji Airways provides free meals for passengers all seat classes, but Business Class ticket holders can pick from a three-course meal and an array of international cuisines, while Economy class passengers are provided with a Fijian inspired meal.
All ticket holders have access to an in-flight entertainment system with music and movies. There is also an in-flight shop called Lomalagi, available onboard all international flights, offering duty-free goods from accessories such as a pair of shades or high-end brand cosmetics.
Fiji Airway’s service was amazing. I mean, I didn’t expect a lot from a small island country, but damn! The website promised me tropical paradise with first-class service all the way, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint. I flew from SFO straight to Fiji. Who would’ve thought it possible, right? And just to top it all off, I was 15 minutes late to the gate because I got stopped by TSA. They actually re-opened the gate for me! What kind of airline does that? Certainly not United. (ha!) All in all, would fly again. 10/10 from me.
Fiji Airways was a delight to fly with. I had booked a romantic vacation with my wife for four nights in Suva, but couldn’t find a cheap ticket. But Fiji came through. They were offering this special promotion, and I snapped it up. Long story short, the flight didn’t break the bank. In-flight entertainment was great (although the movie selection kinda left a lot to be desired) and the food was authentic Fijian cuisine. I’m a die-hard for seafood. From all of us here in Quebec, merci Fiji!
A. You can book tickets directly at https://www.fijiairways.com or you can use a third-party agency like Expedia to buy the ticket for you. Third-party website ticket prices are often lower than the official website’s tickets due to exclusive deals and other money-saving agreements in place between the airline and the websites.
A. Ticket holders do not need to do anything; Fiji Airways will announce the date and time of the replacement flight and will usually give you a partial ticket refund for the inconvenience caused.
A. You must be a member of Alaska, American or Qantas’ frequent flyer program. Fiji Airways does not operate its own consumer rewards program, but they have partnered with those three airlines.

The Qantas plan gives business class ticket holders a 25% bonus and excludes R, U and X ticket holders. Likewise, the Alaska Airlines plan allows business class ticket holders a 25% bonus and excludes U, X, N and T ticket holders. Finally, AAdvantage (American Airlines’ plan) grants business class ticket holders a 25% bonus and does not include U, X and R ticketholders.
