I just got a great deal on AR between SYD and EZE for a mere $1800. I beleive that this is their low fare during the Winter months. The fact that QF code shares on the LA flights, prices tend to be a bit more expensive. As I have stated before on another thread, there where many Chileans onboard AR as it was cheaper for them to fly via EZE rather than going on LA.
As fir NZ:A couple of months ago a group of new recruits told me that NZ where looking at offering flights to EZE. I hate rumours, but that is what they where told during trainning.
I guess we will just have to wait and see.
If this flight does go ahead, it could cause huge head aches for AR and LA as they would loose the lucrative Brazilian market that fills these flights up. EK is another that is looking at flying to EZE and GRU. Wether it does so via AKL is yet to be seen.

I agree, though it is good to see 2 South American carriers in AKL and SYD! I'm sure at one stage Varig were considering a flight to AKL and SYD, anyone heard of that? It would also be great if NZ flew to South America.
AR will add a third flight in November through to March, though their loads are terrible sometimes, LA on the other hand seem to have higher loads more often.
