Could someone (with the requisite knowledge) volunteer to do a wiki on the possible routings (and award rates) from US to PPT, similar to the one in the Maldives threat: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=15937.0

thx

Only flights from the US mainland are TN and AF from LAX.
TN is partners with AA and DL.
AF is partners with DL.

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.

I have myself booked for 3 nights in the Le Meridien OWB for 274 dollar and IIRC 15K point per night. Is it easy to book the IC instead buying the points as pointed on DDMS? Is it tied into availability etc.?

It would be a better deal of course at just 287 USD per night although I don't know which hotel has a better OWB.

You're not going to decide to go to Bora Bora based on the quality of the premium cabin, are you?

According to a review from MMS AF is much better almost lie flat. While the other is only a recliner type.

If by "other" you mean TN, then you're incorrect. The planes were retrofitted beginning in April of 2013 to be angled flat.

Why they'd bother retrofitting the plane in this era with angled instead of lie-flat is anyone's guess. Probably felt they didn't need to, as they're the only daily operator of US-PPT flights.

And never again quote MMS as a source for anything... except maybe arrows. Shame on you.
