We flew economy on Air Tahiti Nui but lucked out and got bulkhead seats which gave us extra legroom for the overnight flight. We arrived in Los Angeles at 11 AM, cleared customs, got our luggage and made our way to the United terminal for the five-hour flight back to Newark. It was a very long 24 hours, but we managed OK.
All in all, this turned out to be a fabulous vacation. I highly recommend the Paul Gauguin. The Society Islands should certainly be part of anyone’s “bucket-list.” But please make sure you also experience an over-the water-bungalow. You’ll never regret it.
