Air Tahiti Nui | NTAA-LFPG | Boeing 787-9

Hey everyone! I recently completed my long haul flight from Tahiti, French Polynesia, to Paris, France. An interesting fact about this flight is that it’s the longest domestic flight in the world! This was a very scenic flight overall, and a lot of fun! Anyway, these are some screenshots from the flight. (None of these photos are edited)

Just seen your profile, are you interested in joining any va’s in particular or just freely looking?

Um, well at the moment, I can’t really commit to one right now, maybe in a couple months though…

currently my device (it ran out of battery earlier) with the replay is charging, so it’ll have to wait a little bit…

Don’t worry, I’m not recruiting or anything, I’m fact I’m not part of any va, I was just wondering. I’m about 15,000 xp and about 10-20 flight hours away from grade 3 so I’m on the grind and lookout for good routes. I would love to join a va eventually so yea
