Is there any possibility that this airline will operate to Europe, maybe London or Paris more likely??? Are they getting more A340s and if so does that mean they plan new routes.

Ia Orana all !

Air Tahiti Nui already operates from Papeete to Paris CDG twice a week during the winter timetable, via LAX.
They are looking to operate daily though within the next 2 years when new aircraft join the fleet. 2 A340-300 have been ordered, the aircrafts which were previously tagged to join Sabena will arrive around April 2003 and will bare the name of the Island of "Moorea" and the other will carry the name of the atoll of "Rangiroa".

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew.
