Aerolineas Argentinas MAD-LGW Route

I was wondering what the load factors are like on this route.

I note from the Aerolineas Argentinas website that they have Spanair as one of their partners.
Would a Spanair code on this route be good for Spanair and Aerolineas Argentinas or would bmi object because Spanair have a code on bmi's MAD-LHR route?

Hey Richard,

I believe the loads on MAD-LGW are not bad. The aircraft varies from day to day, sometimes being an AR MD-88 based at MAD, or an A7 A310 or B733. That flight works as a connecting flight for passengers flying to/from EZE, though seats are also sold for MAD-LGW only.

AR does not condeshare with Spanair on that route. I believe (not sure, though) that they codeshare with A7 (Air Plus Comet), since A7 operates some of the flights. A7 is also owned by AR's parent company, Grupo Marsans.

Saludos,
Marambio

It's a codeshare agreement between Aerolineas Argentinas and Air Plus Comet. The agreement includes AR flights EZE-MAD-EZE plus the intra european flights operated by Air Plus Comet, which are now MAD-CDG and MAD-LGW, and from November will be also MAD-ZRH and MAD-MUC.

Since October the operation includes only Air PLus Comet aircraft on Intra European flights, that is B737-300 and A310-300. Aerolineas Argentinas MD88 is back in Buenos Aires.

Regards

I knew they were about to bring it back, but not that it already was here. Are they planning to send another narrowbody to Europe or just keep on cooperating with Air Plus?

Is the MD sitting still now or is it being used? If they did send something back to MAD woudn't they wait until the summer travel period is over in Argentina?

Smart move for AR to have a 'mini hub' in MAD to shuttle passengers back and forth between the Spanish capital and other European cities.
As much as I would love to see AR operate direct EZE-MUC/ZRH services it would be a sure money looser if it where to do this.
Any news on ATH yet?? Or are they looking at other destinations within Europe/Middle East?

As Enrich-Maria Remarque said on his book, An Westen nicht neues (Nothing new from the West). On Aerolíneas in-flight magazine you see ATH, CAI and LAX as "future destinations", but that's the only thing I know...

Small correction: the book in English is known as "All Quiet on the Western Front". Great book, and a great saying too. ¿Sos alemán?

As for the Mad Dogs, if -VCB is back in Argentina, then that will mean AR/AU will have a total of up to 14 for the summer season, which would probably translate to more flights to FTE, IGR, SLA and USH domestically, and maybe some more to GIG, VVI and northeastern Brazil.

How do you say "12 months" in Estonian?

Tengo la ciudadanía alemana y vengo de una familia alemana, but I consider myself 100% argento. Big grin Ineed All Quiet in the Western Front is a great book, and thanks for the correction.

In fact MD-88 LV-VCB made it last regular flight in EUrope as AR1131 CDG-MAD on September 30th. She flew back to Buenos Aires on October 1st, following the route EZE-SID-REC-EZE. She is now flying regularly to regional destinations from EZE, such as GIG, GRU and SCL.
