I have joined Air France at its main CDG base on October 28th 1996
and have always worked on our long-haul network with only 2 months
spent on short haul flights.
I have flown nearly 4000 hours on every type of aircraft but the
newly delivered Airbus A330-200. I have spent countless times in
countless cities all over the world with my favourites being Tokyo,
Bangkok, San Francisco, Boston and Johannesburg.
I befriended many a passenger and made myself some of the best
friends I can count on.
As of September 1st I will no longer serve the Paris base as I am
being transfered, at my demand, to our Tahiti base. There I will
settle down in the small city of Pirae, close to Papeete and will
operate the PPT-LAX-CDG route on our 747-400.
I will continue reading your reports and information from my native
To all a warm Happy Flying... 45 days to go before I fly to Papeete...

I was at the Beachcomber Intercontinental on Moorea for nine days last year.
It was really exceptional for about five days....then the boredom set in! I was practically making new friends based on which newpapers and magazines they had (Ok..not quite that bad).
My recommendation is to remember to bring plenty to read. There is only so much snorkeling and scuba diving you can do.
Oh...the the French Polynesians were all very polite and friendly. I'm sure you'll enjoy your assignement there.

Thanks for your information but remember that I am a native of the island and I grew up 19 years there spending all my youth in Tahiti.
I love my island but I know you can get pretty bored after a while but I will be flying once a week to LAX and can always go and visit one of our 180 something island and atolls and if worse comes to worse I will fly to the neighbouring countries. I pla to go to Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Easter Island, Chile Hawaii etc...
