Flights are almost $3,000 per person later this year. Has anyone found a more affordable way of getting to Bora Bora? I am helping someone book their honeymoon. If you have been to Bora Bora - please give me recommendations. Thank you.

Is that 3k including the inter-island flights between PPT and Bora Bora?
I just returned from Bora Bora. $3000 a person is definitely at the upper range of what tickets cost, but prices are dependent on season, specials and when you book. I was able to use AA miles for Air Tahiti Nui flights from LAX to PPT (the redemption also included ORD-LAX on AA). You can use miles from a few other programs as well. Finding tickets at low redemption levels for 12/16 might be difficult.
Only Air Tahiti (not the same as Air Tahiti Nui) flies from PPT to Bora Bora, and tickets cost about $500 a person. There is no other practical way to get to Bora Bora. I do not know of any way to get discounted tickets on Air Tahiti.
If the budget is tight, they can do Moorea, which is reachable on a quick and cheap ferry, instead of Bora Bora. This saves $1000 on airfare alone, and hotels, food and activities are also cheaper. Moorea has no 5 star hotels like the Four Seasons and St Regis Bora Bora, but the 4 star hotels with over water bungalows (eg. Hilton) are still very nice.
A Bora Bora honeymoon is not for anyone on a tight budget. Easily 10k+ for a week at St Regis or Four Seasons (or even IC Thallaso), not including airfare. You can cut the budget down a bit by doing cheaper hotels, eating sandwiches for dinner, skipping activities, etc but that is not what most people want on a honeymoon.
