Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "New and clean aircraft, very nice business class lounge at Orlando airport"
Cons: "Food was terrible in business class, very limited choices in entertainment, cabin staff not engaging or particularly helpful"
Cons: "El centro de servicios al consumidor no contesta las llamadas de forma eficiente. Tuve problemas con el check-in que requería asistencia. Tuve que esperar un total de una hora para ser atendido (dos llamadas : una esperé 35 minutos y colgué y la otra unos 38 minutos más). Al fin y al cabo la persona que me atendió no me pudo ayudar. Me dijo que no podía hacerlo pero que iba a poder asignar dos asientos juntos para mi esposa y yo. Para sorpresa mía no fue así cuando hice el check-in en el aeropuerto tenían a mi esposa y a mi separados. Tuve que aceptar los dos últimos asientos en la cola del avión - los cuales no reclinaban completo. Para culminar; para cuando la azafata vino a proveer el servicio de almuerzo- se había terminado la carne. Mal servicio"

Pros: "The check-in was easy, no charges for baggage and everything was on time. The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "It was a good flight and I appreciated the efforts of the airline."
Cons: "flight left and arrived on time. plane fine. We were 4 hours on the plane, 1hr 15 Ushuaia to El Calafate, 45 minutes on the tarmac and 1 hour 45 El Calafate to Bariloche. No food either free or to purchase, no drink on the first leg or the tarmac, 1 glass of water on 2nd leg. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Food, time fling chenger to mach no more Aerolíneas Argentinas"
Pros: "All in general.."
Cons: "Maybe the seat...lol... but all is ok....thanks"
Pros: "Food was ok, plane was quiet and dark so could sleep, movies choice was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 1/2 hours. Seating is tight, especially if person in front of you reclines his seat."
Cons: "The flight got delayed"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4 hours!!!"
Pros: "Airport waiting area was nice. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Announcement of who was boarding and what rows was difficult to hear. Also English translation would have been helpful."
Pros: "the plane"
Cons: "I paid $16 for selected seat but the airline didn´t accepted."
Pros: "Great service, food and landing."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "No reason to have dinner at 1:00 am. Just let us sleep. Too much waste with low-quality food and garbage created."
Pros: "Service, food, Argentinian movies"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "The airline runs efficiently and on time. Staff acted like they appreciated their customers. Food and beverages were actually served!"
Pros: "Clean, efficient, friendly modern airline. Absolutely no complaints, especially given the rock bottom rate we paid!"
Cons: "No issues with the airplane or staff. Travelers to Argentina should know, however, that the airlines require proof of a ticket for leaving the country before boarding their flight. We had only booked one way so we had to book a bus ticket to Uruguay using our cell phones. It was very disconcerting. (Some very kind airline staff helped us with that). And even more so because no one at customs in Argentina asked for any return information! A last minute return flight booking at the gate was quoted at an outrageous sum."
Pros: "Crew were very responsible and respectful."
Cons: "At Ezeiza Airport the Aerolineas Argentinas attendants for the checking were too slow! Food/ dinner very poor. The flight/ pilot was good. Crew was good. At the JFK I have to wait almost 4 hours for the luggage!!"
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Got to the airport early, personnel at the gate asked out of their own initiative if I wanted a better seat on the emergency row. They serve the usual airplane drinks (coffee, coke, water, juice, etc.) and give you a bag of trail mix and a cereal bar - not as good as the alfajores from a few years ago but still way better than what you'd get in North America or Europe these days. They offered streaming to your own device for IFE but I didn't use it. It's a pleasure to see so much improvement to Aerolineas vs. a few years ago. The monitors had dozens of flights and they were all on-time, both ways."
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"
Pros: "Beautiful plane. Luggage pick up was very good and fast."
Cons: "At check in the employees were chatting with each other while we waited excesice time in an extremely large and slow moving line. too little space between one seat and the next one."
Pros: "All my avianca flights on this trip have been delayed. The last one was delayed several hours. There was no air conduction on the flight we were stuck on the track for over an hours."
Cons: "Lost in track, delayed, crew was dismissive."
Pros: "Service Food On time"
Cons: "Space berween seats which is as small as in other airlines"
Cons: "Planes do not have any entertaining facility at all. Basic version of Boing 737-800."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "It seems like there is no simple grasp of what priority luggage means. It means that it should be handled first and that it would come out first on the carousel. This did not happen and caused significant delay in our departure."
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "A bit crowded seats, especially to watch TV screen less than a foot in front of eyes -- not good for eye sight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, plane seemed clean, the atmosphere was calm and quiet, and flight was on time."
Cons: "Food from New York to Argentina was very good. Food from Argentina to New York was a bit stale, coffee was especially poor."
Cons: "I was double booked on the same flight using Kayak. Aerolineas Argentina is so far refusing to reverse the double credit card charge. Terrible customer service. Not sure I'll ever use Kayak or fly Aerolineas Argentina again. I am telling everyone I know about the experience so they will beware of using Kayak."
Pros: "In flight entertainment through wifi and smart phone."
Cons: "Late flight with no information on why there was a delay. Managed to catch the connecting flight but our luggage did not. No one gave us a lost luggage number so no one was able to tell us where our luggage was."
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."
Pros: "Comfort of plane, entertainment available, on time arrival. I would never go on american, delta or latam if I have option on aerolíneas argentinas"
Cons: "Food was average, check in process was a little slow, not bad but there is no online checkin available."
Pros: "Delayed. This airline isn't good. Out of 6 flights, only 1 was on time."
Pros: "The cookies were great"
Pros: "Just normal"
Pros: "Crew members, service everything was great"
Cons: "There were so many families and babies and children, they should have a seccion for kids also so they can play, and other for people that travel alone. Its a long flight and crying babies and children running and kicking cost me the next two days takig naps every 5 minutes. I never had this problem before i usually sleep all the flight."
Pros: "un vuelo pobre para la tarifa que aplican . horrible los asientos , comida de poca calidad y tripulación totalmente en otra dimensión y sin calidad de servicio al pasajero."
Cons: "Distance between seats (pitch) , Crewmembers testily, flight entertainment not work (IFE)"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and on time. I got from point A to point B as planned, which is the most important thing."
Cons: "After going through airport security there was another check where they physically went through everyone's carry on bags at the gate right before boarding. It took forever, but I don't begrudge the airline for the stupid things the TSA makes them do. What *was* disappointing and quite disrespectful was that all liquids were confiscated at this check, even though they had all been purchased in the terminal after regular airport security. Water bottles from kiosks and unopened bottles of wine from shops. No warning about this beforehand so we could avoid wasting a bunch of money. Then to add insult to injury, the flight attendants never once responded to the call bell. I was trapped in the middle of the row behind a sleeping fat man desperate for water and without my water bottle. One little cup with each meal didn't cut it, so I came off my 11 hour flight nice and dehydrated and feeling ill."
Cons: "they cancel a short fligth and send us by bus, there were flights landing at the same time in the same airport they said that has weather issues so I dont think it was weather issues"
Pros: "You can feel it is an old plane, some update with some updates on the video equipment. Service and food is not the quality of other airlines in Americas"
Cons: "OK experience, nothing bad"
