Considering that it currently costs $1000 or more to get from North America to Europe, its notable that flying farther across the Pacific will actually cost travelers less in August. That's thanks to a last minute sale from Air Tahiti Nui which is slashing the usual price of airfare by some 60% to just $698 round-trip. (Flights originate in Los Angeles at that rate.) Travelers must hit the skies between August 1 and 18, returning no later than September 9. In addition to the airfare, taxes are an additional $93.
