My mother and I departed from Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui(ATN) on an over night flight. We exchanged about $150 USD for XPF at the LA airport for a $6 charge. We wanted to pay cabs and food upon arrival in XPF. You can exchange money on the ship for a great rate!
ATN Flight-The seats were comfortable a dinner was served around 1am and breakfast around 3:30-4am. Both were good. The flight was a little bumpy. ATN gave out blankets, pillows, head phones, night mask, socks and ear plugs to each passenger. There were 8 different movies to watch.
We arrived in Tahiti at 5:30am. We booked a day room at the Sofitel for $120 USD. It had 2 single beds a free bottle of water and some instant coffee/tea. Bring an adapter for your plugs as most if not all of the hotels have European outlets. The cab to get to the Sofitel was 1700xpf.
