HA has a flight from HNL on shabbos only though the return is motzei shabbos but would probably require you to be on PPT island for shabbos.

Hawaiian Airlines during the month of October and November 2018 is increasing service to Tahiti, as the airline introducing 2nd weekly rotation on Honolulu Papeete route. From 02OCT18 to 20NOV18, additional flight will be served on Tuesdays, with A330-200.

No direct aisle access for all but still a huge improvement.

You're going to have bigger issues than lack of direct aisle access if you're going to BOB where that will matter.

I don't get what you're saying.

Ah, true say. My point was just to add that there's no direct aisle access, not that it's necessarily a big deal.

Just thinking... if there's no availability for OWB with points is it crazy to use 80k UR (CSR) per night for a once in a lifetime trip?

Would getting the Chase Marriott 100K X4 = 400K get me to the SR BOB for a few nights? just called SPG they want 95K per night for the BOB SR and book 4 nights get the 5th night free.

Or what is a good strategy to get a points property in  BOB? intercontinental is not easy

Ha, you'd barely get 1 night for 400K.

95K SPG = 285K MT

Remain to be seen if the collective will get the opportunity to redeem for SR BOB and like hotels for 60K MT come August.

And at that rate, good luck finding nights with availability.

So what's your suggestions on how to stay at similar properties while at BOB?

Look at Conrad?

Hope to win the lotto and book SR BOB post Aug 1?
