Air Tahiti Nui - Anyone a Club Tiare member?

Just wondering. I know you can move AA miles but I don't like AA program.

How often do you plan to go back to tahiti? (or Auckland, Sydney, Tokyo, oskaka or Paris ) from LAx ?

if it is just for this time, no need to join any program. In the other hand consider how often you are likely to use in Texas a route flown By AA ( the airline, not the other organisation )

You can earn AA miles on ATN flights.

You can't "move" AA miles - - although you can redeem AA miles on ATN flights.

Not many ways to accrue ATN miles without flying. Seems like AA miles would be a better bet if you are based in TX.

Also, you can't even earn ATN miles on many of their fares. It's a very difficult airline to earn free flights on....unless you get your miles elsewhere to get a free flight.

Whe Booking , enquire about what class of service you are booked ( should it be B or L class, you would not qualify for mileage )

I am a Club Tiare member, and it took me almost 10 years to get my first free flight through their mileage (and I travel to Tahiti several times a year). Recently, however, ATN hooked up with American Express's Membership Rewards program, and now some excellent rewards are available through that partnership, so you might check it out!

Yes, the AMEX partnership is new, and they do offer a few specials. Generally, however, the AMEX redemption rates are high (110,000 points for RT). You would be much better off getting a Starwood Amex, which gives you a lot more flexibility as well asthe option of converting points to miles at 20,000 = 25,000 (and then using those miles on AA @ 75,000 per RT).

American Airlines is offering a deal that is difficult to pass up! 30,000 miles for a RT flight on ATN.... you have to book before May 31 though, but you might want to check it out!
