Air Tahiti Nui's New Seattle SEA to Paris CDG Route adds a third nonstop option between the cities to the existing Air France and Delta flights. The twice a week route extends Air Tahiti Nui's existing Papeete PPT to Seattle service on to Paris, which the airline already flies to nonstop from Papeete and from Los Angeles LAX.
The new route starts on June 13, 2023, with flights from Seattle on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and flights from Paris on Wednesdays and Sundays:
Seattle to Paris CDG
- Departs SEA at 14:30, arrives Paris CDG at 9:00 the next day (TN58, flight time of 9 hours and 30 minutes)
Paris CDG to Seattle
- Departs Paris CDG at 12:05, arrives SEA at 13:20 (TN57, flight time of 10 hours and 15 minutes)
Air Tahiti Nui 787-9
Air Tahiti Nui's 787-9 Business Class has 30 flat bed seats in a 2-2-2 configuration. This seems old fashioned compared to most business class products that offer direct aisle access for each seat, but isn't surprising given that Air Tahiti Nui's focus is on leisure travelers, typically couples traveling together.
Current Air Tahiti Nui Business Class award travel for summer 2023 is relatively scarce, but when it is available, it can be reserved for 57,500 AAdvantage miles each way, or 60,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles each way.
Where to Stay in Paris
Our favorite Paris luxury hotel is LVMH's Cheval Blanc Paris, sister hotel of Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives, which we reserve for TravelSort Clients with Virtuoso benefits. Its wonderful location by the Seine makes it a short walk to the Louvre and from the Left Bank, including the Jardin du Luxembourg, Pierre Herme's flagship store on rue Bonaparte, and the Musee d'Orsay. Rooms and suites have a residential feel, with sumptuous beds that encourage sleeping in, a spacious bathroom with an oversized walk-in rain shower, and a plethora of amenities (even a makeup fridge). “Winter garden” areas enjoy views of the Seine, with excellent natural light. Take in views of the Eiffel Tower over an indulgent breakfast at Le Tout-Paris.
For guests craving some retail therapy on the Champs-Elysees, we recommend the Four Seasons George V as well as its three Michelin star restaurant Le Cinq. Boutique hotel lovers should consider La Reserve Paris. The Peninsula Paris can also be a good choice, especially when arriving in the morning after a red eye flight, since with PenClub benefits guests enjoy guaranteed early check-in (from 6am).
