Uch-already coming in from AKL I'll probably have to overnight in PPT-two nights in PPT out of 5 may just kill this leg of the for me...

Where in Papeete did you stay? Recommend it?

No availability PPT-USA

TN has no availability the entire week
AF only has on Sunday 7:30-can't get in that morning, flight Sat night probably can't make and even if I could would be full-so then I'm coming back Friday to spend shabbat in PPT-gives me like 1-2 nights in bob-not worth it with moving the whole fam
HA-same problem as AF

So only chance I got is PPT-AKL Sunday night or Monday, then late M night / Tu morning 12:15 AKL-HNL, HNL USA

All terrible options

You mean stay in PPT and not go to BOB?

May as well stay home.

What about 3 nights in BOB and just spending Shabbos at IHG PPT-nice enough to consider or rather wait to do BOB another trip?

Interesting...well that may be an option-alternatively, looking more at Moorea + PPT-people seem to have really like it
Maybe maybe...yeah people like BOB for the OWB but I've done that and honestly with kids would maybe feel more at ease being on land anyway

Not a bad second option if that's where you're at.

Though google images of MOZ looks nice, I'd def prefer BOB.

OK so I am almost ready to book my flights to PPT. Just wanted to ask advice before doing so.

I am booking flights in February 2017 for a trip that I want to take in March 2017. I want to book now to lock in the current AA prices and then change the dates to March when the flights become available.

For the flights from LAX to PPT there is a 4:25 PM flight arriving at 10:50 PM and a 10:40 PM flight arriving 5:05 AM. Which flight am I better off taking?
