Can someone provide the latest status on Aerolineas Argentinas?

Are they back flying a normal schedule now? Are they having serious operational/dispatch problems.

In particular, how are they doing on the GIG-EZE non-stop flight?

Is it safe to boob for travel next week?

Everything is normal now, since new management (government intervention) published the real and possible schedule.

Things have settled down considerably, so I think you are safe booking this route for travel next week.

Two ideas:

1. Over the next few days, consult airport operator Aeropuertos Argentina 2000's flight status tool for the Aerolineas Argentinas flight you are planning on taking GIG-EZE to check ontime performance. Here is a link to the tool, which shows both arrivals at EZE and departures: http://www.aa2000.com.ar/index.php

2. You could always consider flying Varig on this route. They have several flights between GIG and EZE each day.

Pack your patience, though. Flights into EZE (and out of it) are often delayed, no matter which carrier you are flying.

Considering that Argentinian Government will announce officially the restate of the company the possibility of new strikes and cancellation are less.

As MD11junkie said, the situation its going to normal.

You guys are awesome - thanks for the info. There is NO WHERE else you can find quality information like that than airliners.net. The Aerolineas flights are much cheaper and emptier than Varig's or Tam's - so I book it for my wife daughter to meet me in Buenos Aires I'm flying in on AA (American) from JFK arriving withing 15 min of them - if everything works well, we'll be at EZE at the same time - well, we can only hope.

Cheers.

The flights are doing fine as usual. Of course after the recent problems, some premium passengers will avoid AR for some time, but they still have 3 daily flights GIG-EZE (4x daily on sundays IIRC) and AR1252 landed at GIG today with 1h10min delay.

You may check info on Infraero's website also

If this is helpful...

While being debated in Congress, AR reached a record on-time performance level:

74.1% in Domestic
65.4% in International

Even though low, it's still a BIG improvement from last years 27% in Domestic and 18% in International.

wow, didn't realize it was that bad! pretty embarrasing! Thanx Marsans!
I'm still unsure though of the govt' stepping in again

In any case nice improvement, and let's hope this continues. Btw, what's the fleet status? The govt' had said they would fix a few of the grounded aircraft. Did this happen or did the numbers go up without those extra wings?

Interesting, thanks for sharing.
Some newspapers in Brazil says that AR is looking for a Brazilian investor as a small shareholder.

Hola Lipe!

Interesting that they mention that, probably because of the wacky idea of the "Aerolínea del Sur" with Lula, CFK and Hugo Loco as mentors. But now, since yesterday, the Government has full legal authorization to buy back Aerolíneas Argentinas.

AR is very important for markets like POA and GIG where it's the key player to EZE (as well as on charter flights to BRC) so i'm hope AR and the Government of Argentina may find a good shareholder now.
There's a lot of opportunities waiting for AR (considering TAM and G3/RG can't add more flights) in city pairs like EZE-CNF, EZE-REC and EZE-SSA. For sure they lost a good moment to begin a daylight to MIA thru any major Brazilian City (in special CNF) but i expect they can plan something in the near future even to North America or Europe using the rights they have thru Brazil.

EZE-BSB-MIA could be interesting, but they need to run... TAM and AA are looking to begin this route (BSB-MIA)
