I didint fly myself but my brother did. Expect good personal space in economy and little food. Try to eat something before you board. He told me about very little portions. Also the 777 a bit noisy. From JFK they use 767.
Hope you have a great trip and enjoy your stay in Buenos Aires.

Well it has been years since I have actually worked South America flights... I know that after take off cocktails are supposed to be served, then the dinner service (of course you are approching midnite at his time). A light breakfast was served before landing. Last time I flew it, it was a egg and crossaint sandwich, but I am sure that has changed...

Just like any intercontinental flight. Dinner, Movies, some sleep (some lavatory time too) and Breakfast.
In Argentina you should expect great food. Specially beef and wine. Have fun, buy lots of cheap high quality argentine products!
And enjoy your stay!
