Over the past couple of days I've noticed something strange on AR's destinations list on their website (http://www.aerolineas.com.ar): CDG, MUC and ZRH have all "vanished", although LGW remains and the site appears to have been updated fairly recently as MEX is on the list.
Is this just a glitch, or are Air Plus Comet (A7) no longer connecting CDG, MUC and ZRH with MAD on AR's behalf?

Si, unos amigos me invitaron a esquiar en Suiza con ellos; como no podria aceptar?! Ademas, no conocia a las pistas suizas.
Pero ahora estoy de nuevo en Londres...
AR had a c/s agreement with A7 between MAD and MXP last year, but I think the service was terminated (by A7). As for FCO, the reason is very simple: AR flies direct to FCO 3 or 4 x weekly, using the A342s and B744s. Remember Argentina's demographic make-up (55% of full/part Italian origins, of whom a few can always afford the trip)...
Really enjoyed flying with Swiss; can't imagine that they used to be "even better"!

I know AR flies directly to Rome from Buenos Aires (I remember 3xw with 342 + 1xw with 744) , but I was quite surprised to see only Milan/MAD and Rome/MAD (by A7) without c/s with AR while all the other A7's european flights are operated with AR's c/s.
By the way A7 is still operating from MAD to FCO and MXP and it's going to increase frequencies to Rome from 1st March (3xw to MAD with 733).
I also know that AR continues to go very well with its direct FCO-EZE , so I'll not be surprised to see one day this route increased in capacity or in weekly frequencies.
