tool to search by destination, don't care about origin

Do you know of a tool where I can search for flights based on destination.

Ideally where I can state: anywhere FROM North America to PPT Tahiti anytime in May, business class

Like Google flights...only in reverse

I'd be interested in the answer to this too.

google flights will let you search an unknown destination with a fixed origin, but not the other way around (so far as I know).

ITA Matrix lets you specify multiple origins to a fixed destination (including every airport with 300, 500, etc. miles), but it seems to time out without searching very deeply.

IMO not available. It's technically possible, but not practical as the search engine would have to compare millions of combinations.

It would probably work for non-stop flights to a destination (provided it isn't a major hub) but as soon as you throw stops into the mix, you get too many potential combinations to check.

I would love to be able to reverse search. I've tried putting in my destination into the origination box on Google flights which sometimes helps to find where they have cheap flights to, but it's by no means effective enough.

You can enter up to five origins in google.com/flights. It isn't what you are looking for, but it is better than one at a time.

www.skyscanner.com and www.kiwi.com let you search:
- anywhere FROM X country to PPT Tahiti anytime in May
- anywhere FROM a circle in the map to PPT Tahiti anytime in May
However, none of them seem to let you search business class flights.
