When purchasing tickets, it was not stated that luggage fees may apply, and when we checked the luggage we weren’t how much the baggage fees we’re until we went to another counter."

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 delayed one half hour."

Cons: "The boarding process was confusing as they didn't announce in English always."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan. Tough to beat that."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't apply."
Cons: "We were in the exit row. They made us put our light jackets in the overhead bin while letting 4 others keep them in their laps. When I pointed to the other jackets, the two attendants looked at them and then just moved on. 9 flights in 21 days, all flight attendants on the other airlines we flew were friendly and pleasant. Aerolineas Argentinas attendants were grim, unfriendly, and we believe singled us out for being from the US."
Pros: "I liked the crew they were very friendly and the flight was not too bumpy."
Cons: "Boarding the flight was very disorganized. They had a switching from one line to another just stand in another line somewhere else. I have a severe allergy to peanuts and the fact that both of the snacks they offered on the plane contained peanuts was very disappointing. I could not only eat the snacks they passed around during the flight but I suffered a coughing attack the whole flight from the smell of the peanuts."
Cons: "Our flight from Mendoza to Buenos Aires was delayed 5 hours. The airline didn't provide any timely information or food vouchers. The experience was very unpleasant, I will avoid Aerolíneas Argentinas in the future."
Pros: "Delays, airport of destiny changed with no explanation"
Pros: "On time no luggage issues"

Pros: "Punctuality, clean plane."
Cons: "Very poor food.. no in-flight entertainment. Tight seating. Service offered would best qualify as "no-frills"..."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, great inclination of seats, lot of space between seats and very friendly crew members."
Cons: "Snacks were small for a 3 hours flight."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, pleasant crew, air conditioning worked well."
Cons: "Tight pitch between rows of seats. My knees where practically pushed up against the seat in front of me, and I'm only 5'9". For a 4.5 hour long flight, to be served crackers and cookies is just unacceptable. There wasn't even an option to buy food onboard! And with all the airlines that have entertainment onboard, it was disappointing to just stare at the fabric of the seat in front of me."
Cons: "not anywhere near enough leg room"
Pros: "El vuelo salió un poco demorado por cuestiones climáticas, pero el resto salió todo bien."
Cons: "We flew 4 Aerolineas Argentinas flights on our 2 week trip to Argentina. 1 was cancelled and the other 3 were delayed. The ticketing agents really couldn't have cared less. They were incredibly unhelpful in trying to rebook our cancelled flight. We ended up having to buy all new tickets online. It was a mess for our 4/4 flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed all day and then cancelled after hours of waiting. The airline did not give anyone information or make announcements for a long time both during the delays and after the subsequent cancellation, so we continued to wait at the airport without knowing anything. If they had clued us in to what was going on periodically it would have been helpful. They did finally get us to a hotel to spend the night after a long day in the terminal, but the service and rooms were also very poor there. The next day's flight was also delayed. Unreal. All in all a very disappointing experience. Would not fly them again but they have a monopoly on the particular flight we were on so wouldn't have a choice if we were to repeat again."
Pros: "Delayed. This airline isn't good. Out of 6 flights, only 1 was on time."

Bondi Air changed the departure time to 9 hours latter and would not do anything to help me. I ended flying with another carrier.

After we got to our hotel from Jorge Newberry airport, I realized my Apple AirTag was stolen, and my Belkin power bank charger was also stolen from my luggage. This was initially a carry-on bag due to the items in my bag, and I was forced to check in the bag at the counter and then to Discover things were stolen from my bag once it arrived back at the airport. I was very disappointed in this airlines for this reason, and I will never fly them again due to theft.
