Re: Rumour: UA to launch SFO-PPT in 2018

Makes sense. At present Air Tahiti Nui doesn't fly to SFO while they carry an AA codeshare, (along with QF and NZ codes), from LAX while AF carriers the DL code on its service. So makes sense for UA to plug a gap albeit probably on a less than daily and seasonal flight.
