In addition to enjoying warm Tahitian hospitality and Polynesian- and French-inspired cuisine onboard served by the “Best in Cabin Staff” for the Australia/Pacific region (Skytrax airline survey 2005), the 264 passengers in Moana Class can while away the hours with personal entertainment centers at each seat featuring six first-run movie channels, eight music stations, and the “ATN Game Network,” with card and action games played against the computer or interactively with other passengers on the flight.
