I was in the Shul there. I only found out after Shabbos, so was there for a minyan maariv.
They do not offer food there or anything, but they were really warm and even drove me to the airport.
They told me that one of the people there are planning on opening a Kosher hotel, I am not sure if his plans are coming through.

You were on Tahiti for shabbos and didn't even know about the shul?
Why?

Yes, did not do enough research.
As well, I wanted to stay at the meridian which has over water bungalows in Tahiti and that is a very far walk from the Shul.

But why Tahiti over Moorea or Bora Bora?

I landed Friday morning, wanted to stay Shabbos really close by. Looking back maybe I should have gone to Moorea, but I had a really nice time in Thaiti.

I have 2 (extremely hard to find) TN J award tickets LAX-PPT that it seems I'm probably going to release unfortunately :'(

Dates are 06/09-06/17. Both flights are red-eyes.  I'm guessing the seats will go back to award inventory when cancelled and it's 125K AA per seat.

I also have the Hilton BOB booked 06/10-06/17 for 7 nights at 37.5K per night (currently 95K).

Want to go on the trip of a lifetime? Hit me up to work out the details.

I wish I could go then. I was actually curious about Dan. Because Bora is my next vacation whenever I have the time for it. What is the best way getting tickets from LA. Is American miles the only way to go? I heard that you can use Delta also?

This is becoming very hard to find a friend with 125K AA. Oh the hardships of being single, if I had a +1 I'd just blow 250K :))

Any ddf'ers want to split this?

125k AA is the easy part.

Timing/schedule is where it gets tuff.
