I came across a few tidbits of airline news I figured would be worthy of posting.

First off, Qantas has begun non-stop service between Sydney, Australia and Buenos Aires. According to the Merco Press, Australians travelling to Argentina has experienced subtstainable growth. Thanks to technology, the flight will now take less than 12 hours.

Secondly, Air Canada has reduced fares on flights between some Canadian cites and Buenos Aires. I checked yesterday and a flight between Toronto and BA was under US$700.

Lastly, the ongoing saga of the Argentine government repurchasing Aerolineas has continued to unfold. According to the Associated Press, the current Spanish owners Grupo Marsans has threatened to sue Argentina in an international court if the country tries to expropriate the airline before agreeing on a current value.

We always suggest to our guests to fly on LAN instead of Aerolineas when given the choice.

    Have you had a bad experience with AA?

    Thankfully we personally have not. But there has been a noticeable increase in delays and cancellations.

    Given what is going on with the change of ownership, many believe it is going to get worse before it gets better.

    Suerte, Jamie
