Flights To /from Argentina

Fri Dec 21, 2001 1:18 am

Currently Argentina is in the state of emergency, because of the collapse of Argentine economy.

Does anyone know that any international flights to/from Argentina has being affected or not, like flight cancellation? and what about Aerolineas Argentinas?

Looks like AF and LH are still going.
Don't know about others.

But why shouldn't they fly. The people won't loot the airplane, will they ?

Yes, things are not going very well down here but no, no international flights have been cancelled as of yet or that I have heard of. And even though the economic crisis, the riots in Buenos Aires, looting, food being stolen from supermarkets, 16 people dead, the airlines are still operating... and "seem" to be doing ok for now. Tough times.

Here is an article (in English) from yahoo, pretty much explains it....

Europa Press says that all flights from Madrid Barajas to Buenos Aires are still functioning normally (that includes Aerolineas Argentinas). That is all I know or have heard of in the news. I really hope things get better.

The pictures that are being shown in Telemundo Internacional show Buenos Aires in a complete state of emergency. President Fernando de la Rua has resigned and the countries economic situation is in one of its worst state ever(The new president is apparently the president of the Argentinian senate). Now going to the airline scene AA 909 from MIA seems to be scheduled to depart on time and so is AA's 943. UAL 's 855 is also apparently on time. Aerolineas flight 1303 is also apparently scheduled to takeoff tonight.
Que sea lo mejor para la Argentina.

All four flights departing MIA for EZE tonight are on schedule. So far, flights have not been affected. I remember back in 1999(?) when thier were some problems in Asuscion, though, AA halted flights from MIA/GRU temporairily (though I think it was an airport workers strike).
