I was under the impression that Air Tahiti 3/4 (PPT-JFK-PPT) started service today but I can't seem to find it on the flight tracker. Was it pushed back?

That flight must cut close on the A343's range... Was the flight full?

4 engines 4 longhaul, remember?  Smile

On a more serious note, it may be close but still within it's range. Long, thin routes is what the A340 was built for.

It's only 5500nm.

MTOW is 5800nm to 7400nm for that plane, still air.

I was wondering the same things as well when I was reading the June issue of Conde Nast Traveller. The article said the fare was around 1K$ Return.

That's a hell of a flight for an ATR. Because that's what Air Tahiti operates.
Try Air Tahiti Nui and you might be on the mark. airplane

They had a non-rev offer of $499 r/t positive space (air only, plus taxes), or airfare plus 7 nights hotel for $999. Dates were very specific (only 1 or 2 possible dates in each direction).
