KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Tahiti.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Tahiti is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Tahiti with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Tahiti up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Pros: "Safe flight. Short."
Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."
Pros: "The flight was on time. And it landed on time!"
Cons: "I received a " see agent" instead of a seat. When I asked about it at the gate, the woman said , I'll call you up" .?? Well no one called me up and when there were less than 10 people to board, I went up again. This time the gentleman handed me my new boarding pass. This was not cool!!!"
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Cons: "Almost didn't get a seat."
Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"
Cons: "More leg room and on time!"
Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."
Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Fight was delayed and I wasn't notified. I Didn't receive a seat assignment till I got to the gate."
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "On point"
Cons: "Everything on point"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "Because my first flight from detroit was an hour late i missed this flight and flew American which that flight was nice"
Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"
Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."
Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."
Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"
Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"
