I read articles in the past about Air Tahiti Nui being interested in the A340-500 to open up non-stop flights from Tahiti to the US West Coast and increase flights to Europe and/or add new destinations. Does anyone have more updates on this? Can the Air Canada A340-500's be possible candidates for Air Tahiti Nui? What will happen to the Air Canada A340-500's, will they still be delivered to Air Canada? It's a pitty they are still parked doing nothing.
I think the A340-500 will be a good aircraft for Air Tahiti Nui to improve their long-haul operations/service. Air Tahiti Nui has indicated several times that they want to start non-stop flights to the US which I believe is now being done through Japan, am I right?
Here's a link to a virtual image of a Air Tahiti Nui A340-500:
