Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "No hay entretimiento"
Pros: "Try to obtain Rows 1-2 premium economy on domestic flights -- tons of room in 2-2 leather seating and first-off timing. Not sure how we ended up with this, as it did not show on our confirmation papers. Crew welcoming and efficient. Plane was clean, and flight exactly on-time out of AEP."

Cons: "After our first Uber driver decided he didn’t want to take us to the airport, we found another one 15 min later. We arrived at the airport exactly 1 hour before the flight but after we had to be sent to the international counter, we were only 51 minutes before the flight. They wouldn’t let us even try to make the flight. When we went to customer service they charged $600 to change the flights - 2 tickets. What extortion. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "my flight was delayed one day due to overbooking, basically they gave my place to someone else. I lost one day of accommodation at destination and had to pay another one in Buenos Aires for which they reimburse max 55 usd, and when you wait fir reimbursement those guys move so slow you won’t believe is true, imagine you have also some people before you- i waited for 2h and 30 min and had 5 people before me. Overall Aerolineas is not a stable company so watch out when you plan your itinerary in Argentina with them i lost two flights because of them in one week"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Unable to reschedule."
Pros: "All Flights that we've taken on this airline have departed and arrived on time. The crew are courteous and speak English. On short flight, there is nothing served, no drinks or anything, but on longer one over 1 1/2 hours you get some snacks and non-alcoholic drinks for free. On this flight there was an airline strike 2 days earlier. The seats are roomy compared to airlines in the USA."
Cons: "On this flight there was an airline strike 2 days earlier. The lines at the airport were as long as the airport itself. If I hadn't gone to the front and managed to ask a representative about our flight I never would have known that our El Calafate flight was being checked in at a special counter."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Not a lot of unnecessary announcements so I could try to sleep."

Pros: "People were very nice"
Cons: "The delay of departure."
Pros: "Nice new plane, excellent and friendly crew."
Cons: "Left 20 minuets late for some reason, nobody knows why or ever informed anyone. We all just sat at the gate looking at the airplane."
Pros: "Smooth and on time flight. Food was lacking considering 6am departure."
Cons: "Food was lacking considering 6am departure"
Pros: "The paint color of the plane."
Cons: "International flight, no alcohol available for purchase or free. The food served was a sandwich, cookie & mint. I have Celiac Disease & could not eat any of it besides the mint. The sandwich was two slices of bread with a slice of meat & some sort of cheese in between - looked dry & awful. The landing was not pleasant, I thought we crashed. Entertainment was not provided nor a USB plug."
Pros: "On time.e, good service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nice new plane with clean seats and equipment. Crew nice and quick boarding."
Cons: "Lots of advertising and seats are very close to each other"
Pros: "normal safe flight"
Cons: "my luggage was lost !!!! and we are still waiting for it to arrive ... it resulted in 2 days stuck in a hostel in Santa Cruz without any compensation from the airline"
Pros: "There was NOTHING to like."
Cons: "Long story short: I tried to check in the night before my flight and was told to check-in locally at the airport. I reached the airport 1hr and 45 min before my flight only to be told that while there was a reservation, no funds were transferred to the airline. As such, i would have to purchase another ticket. I tried to reach FlightNetwork USA (associated with the purchase) and their representatives were incompetent to say the least. I missed the flight. I was able to reach an agreement for a refund ONLY after the company pressured me to not notify my bank nor to file a claim as the only way to collect the funds they had taken from me. I will NEVER book through your company if you continue using FLIGHTNEWTWORK, which is a highly organized scam. Best, Sabienne"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I paid about 700usd to a couple of hours and this was the worst company i have ever flew here"
Pros: "Organized boarding process. Clean plane"
Cons: "Food. Service slow"
Pros: "Good quality modern plane and excellent clues for money. Boarding was a bit late and not explained but for the price (much less than AA) it was excellent. I would definitely flybeoth them again"
Cons: "They changed the date of my flight without telling me and then were kind of cruel about it when I asked what happened. I had to spend an extra day in Buenos Aires and go back to the airport the next day. I had scheduled a hostel in my destination and the hostel wasn't able to change my reservation but they charged me for the night anyway. I ended up camping in El Calafate, where it was very cold and rained all night."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. However, it left at a much later time than scheduled and at a different airport in the city."
Cons: "Aerolineas Argentinas cancelled my morning fight the night before without explanation. There was very little information, and I was unable to call a representative because it was off-hours when I got my cancellation notice. When I arrived at the airport, they changed my flight to a much later time departing at a different airport in the city (although they did provide a free shuttle). If I have a choice in the future, I would avoid Aerolineas Argentinas."
Pros: "The airplane was a newer one that was very comfortable."
Cons: "Aerolineas staff was very rude during airline strike"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was helpful and professional and upon arrival we received our luggage promptly. Will fly Aerolineas Argentinas again!"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that they eventually got us to El Calafate"
Cons: "What didn't I like? Everything else. I fly 150000 miles a year and have never had an experience like this. Aerolineas went on strike the morning of our flight and canceled it. Ok, strikes are terrible, but they happen. However, we then had to spend NINE HOURS waiting in line at the airport. Aerolineas refused to talk to us over the phone, saying we had to call the agency. Kayak and FlightNetwork tried to call Aerolineas, who then said they wouldn't help and we could only solve it at the airport. Hence the nine hours. They eventually rebooked us on a flight the next morning, out of the other airport in Buenos Aires. Again, I get it, flights were full with the cancellations. But the run-around was appalling, and they didn't pay for our hotel (why on earth not? We had to spend an extra night and it was ENTIRELY THEIR FAULT) or the $100 of cabs back into the city and then out the next morning. Absolutely appalling customer service. Never again. And honestly, never again through Kayak either."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Excellent staff"
Cons: "Crustless ham and chees sandwich was a little lacking but it was a short flight so ok"
Pros: "The entire process went well, and the airports in Bariloche and El Calafate were efficient and clean. This was a great flight, especially for tourists wishing to avoid the long bus routes."
Cons: "The food is very basic (not a problem for short flights), but only "gaseosas" (carbonated drinks) or water were offered, and it would be nicer if juices (orange, tomato, etc.) were included in the options. Another minor issue: the inflight wifi was limited to only the onboard entertainment (in other words, no outside internet access) and there were no screens, so you had to have your own wifi device (tablet, phone, etc.) which isn't really a big problem these days, but are things for passengers to consider when comparing to bus routes."
Pros: "Our first flight of the day on Aerolineas, from Salta to Buenos Aires was delayed an hour. We were supposed to have two hours in AEP (Buenos Aires), to connect with our international flight to Rio de Janeiro, but ended up with only 1 hour from landing to takeoff. Because the tickets were booked separately we had to collect our bags and recheck them. But the baggage claim area was packed with people and there were two flights before ours lined up for the belt. We knew it would be at least half an hour just to get the bags... it was too tight. So I went to the Aerolineas desk and a nice woman checked the status and referred me to the Customer Service desk. The man there made some calls and assured me that they would pull our bags and put them on our flight to Rio. He told us to go directly to the gate. We did, and needed every minute to go through customs and arrived just in time for boarding. Amazingly, our bags were there when we arrived in Rio, and we were very happy that we made it with our things!"
Cons: "Again, like 3 hours late"
