I would imagine that Papeete is a very high end leisure market and not a cheap place to visit. I can't really see DY working that market, especially from OAK. I could see AF using one of their 777 from SFO 2-3 times a week to Papeete, maybe a seasonal route?


High yielding leisure is precisely what DY would want, no reason for them not to pursue it and provide better prices along the way. I don't think Air France would be able to make it work with a 777, too many seats, DY could be the only one to do it by providing that option for ORY customers to continue.

Well, I hope your right! I would love to have the link between SFO and Papeete. I always wondered given Bay Area economic wealth why there was not a non-stop, seems like a no-brainier. But I guess the LAX transit is the only way?

There is a long history of Bay Area-Tahiti service - From AOM, Minerve, UTA, AF and Corsair. The last service was actually Corsair from OAK. It is my understanding the French Polynesian tourism sector has seen a drastic contraction over the last 20 years or so. If only one USA mainland gateway survives, naturally it would be LAX.

As far as Papeete goes, a ORY-OAK-PPT through-flight could work for DY.
When wasn't America great?

Ahhhhh Lufthansa group has that on lockdown... Lufthansa, Germanwings, Swiss, Austrian, and now Brussels Airlines... add in some Air Berlin, not anytime soon... Why bother go for a bloody nose in a fight when you can take candy laying being held out for you to take away...? Just my .02

In other interesting news... Norwegian is planning on using the 787 intra-Europe... Not the routes I would have expected. The 737 is always weight restricted out of DXB apparently so that was my first guess... I guess this was more of an ability to check off crew and maximize utilization, though. Curious to see if they offer anything in their premium cabin on a short haul route... for free at least... From what I remember they used the 787 to AGP when they first started to get crews trained on it quicker...
