Where will the remaining 3 B 744s come from?
UNTIED is eager to sell-lease out.
SQ has 7 in the deserts of USA and AUSTRALIA
KOREAN is leasing out some B 744s (to Air India at least)
AIR CANADA is returning its other 2 B 744 full pax versions by the end of the summer!!!
My bet will be on either ex AC or ex UAL B 744 models...does the UAL have the same engines as the AC one and have AR reconfigured ACs interior cabin of the B 744 to make it 3 class and filled with other amenities?

Apparently Aerolineas Argentinas is also to receive 1 A340 ,a A310-300 around 8 743-500 (for their domestic operations) and 2 MD83.
All these where annopunced at the Marriott Plaza Hotel in Buenos Aires by the airline president Matta.
There has also been a 39.78% growth in the number of passengers that the airline carried, along with an increase of 156.71% growth in profits.
They are also getting ready to start up the regional carriers that will be based in Salta, Cordoba and Bariloche. These 'hubs' will be utilised to stop the 'have to go via AEP' problem that many AR passengers face.
