Hope you enjoyed part 1 of the trip yesterday. We finished up with Bora Bora and we headed back to the airport for our flight over to Tikehau. That’s where we pick this back up today.
The boat brought us back to the airport an hour before departure, so again, we had plenty of time to wait. I marveled over the fact that I was actually allowed to bring my bottle of water on the plane. Amazing. We watched a private jet take off and then our plane came in to pick us up for the longest interisland flight of our trip and the only one over an hour.
We departed to the east and turned northeast for the hour plus flight over open ocean to our first stop, Rangiroa. They actually fly nonstop from Bora Bora to Tikehau once a week, but that didn’t work with our schedule.
The service was pretty much the same as it was over to Huahine - they served us pineapple juice again, and I read most of the way. As we got toward Rangiroa, it started to cloud up in the distance but we slid right into the airport without a bump. We thought we would be able to wait on the plane again, but we were wrong. They were refueling in Rangiroa, so we had to all get off the plane and wait in the terminal.

Back in the early days, one flight number would usually have one airplane the whole way. Heck, it was more likely for the airplane to stay the same than the actual airline!
Don’t get too excited. I didn’t actually get to fly on one. But I did get invited to come take a tour of a 787 while it was on the ground here in Long Beach as part of a tour around North America. Of course, I was thrilled to do it.
As I mentioned yesterday, the big buzz at the APEX expo last week was around wireless entertainment.
