    Doing some research for a trip to Tahiti later in the year and guess what?

    Qantas is more expensive! Given that QF code shares with TN and TN operates the flight, QF J class $5600, TN J class $3100.

    TN F class is only $1000 more than QF J.

    (these are ex SYD)

    That is a big difference for SC and points!!!!

    Someone from QF please explain???

    Qantas can choose to charge whatever they like for their codeshares on other planes.

    They've just chosen to charge a higher amount than TN in this case. In other cases it is less.

    I think TN may be having a sale. Looking at the published rates for mid August, they are just about identical between the two carriers.

    No sense in booking the QF codeshare I agree - unless you get a good corporate discount, or treasure the SC's etc.

    For the random date "later in the year" that I checked (9th Sept), the TN and QF fares are either exactly the same of so close it does not matter.

    For example:

    QF and TN in D = A$2900 return SYD-PPT-SYD
    QF in C and TN in J = A$2633 one-way
    TN in J = $5266 return (no QF fare showing for J return, only D)
    QF in A and TN in P = A$3224 one-way
