One of the most difficult award tickets to book just became very bookable this month. In this post, we’ll illustrate how to find Air France Business Class award availability to Tahiti and book using airline miles.
I’m finding multiple days on the outbound and return where there is plenty of availability. If interested in visiting French Polynesia, now may be the time to book and visit.
How To Find Availability With AirFrance
Anytime I book an award ticket to Tahiti, I start with the US Air France website. After you plug in your dates, you’ll be able to search by calendar availability. After a quick search, I was able to find both outbound and return flights from Los Angeles to Tahiti at the low award level.
Air France wants 75,000 each way per person in Business Class plus ~$250 Euros in taxes and fees.
What if you don’t have Air France miles? A few options exist:
- Transfer miles from a hotel program
- Transfer miles from American Express to Air France
- Purchase Air France miles outright
- Book the ticket with Delta miles (see below)
Booking Air France Flights with Delta Miles
It is easy to book an Air France flight with Delta miles. First, find availability on the Air France website, shown above. Then head on over to Delta’s website and plug in the exact dates you know there is availability. Then pick the flights where low level availability exists.
First select the outbound flight.
Next, select the return flight.
Then piece it all together and redeem 150,000 miles plus $55.60 per ticket.
A Business Class award to Tahiti at 150,000 and 55.60 per ticket is not a bad deal at all.
When Air France Business Class low level availability opens up, it is hard not to book it and just go.
Have you been to Tahiti? If so, have you considered going on airline miles and what was your experience with finding award availability?
