The 727's AR had were all 200 series. I think they got them all brand new from around 1979 to 1984.

Yes, you're right AeroArgentina. However, I was talking about that specific plane you see on the pic, which was a 727-100. This plane was chartered by Aerolineas Argentinas from an American company to be based in Miami in which it created a small hub for connecting passengers on their 747s from Buenos Aires that connected to popular carribean destinations such as the ones mentioned above. So you see, AR did operate the 727-100 after they had gotten rid of the 200s but this aircraft never got to touch down in the country that it flew the flag for.

I definately did not know that about the 727's. That's pretty cool, thanks for the info. Why did they get rid of the plane? Also do you know of any route news with AR and if they will buy any new planes any time soon? I am looking for news but can't find it anywhere.

Latinplane,

The Boeing 727-100 also operated to San Juan and Mexico City.

The A310 were introduced in 1995 and flown originally to :

New York JFK: A special fuel tank was incorporated in order the aircraft to cover the nonstop flight from Buenos Aires.

Toronto and Montreal: both served from JFK.


In Latin America they flew to Bogota, Panama, Guayaquil, Lima and Mexico (on their Los Angeles route), Cancun, Caracas, Porlamar, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago and also Cordoba (as a stop to Miami). Also you can see them from time to time at Aeroparque Jorge Newbery when EZE was closed for fog some flights from Lima or New York would land in AEP.

Why they got rid of the A310's. Perhaps lease fees, however, the management style of the previous administration was hard to understand. There were frequent schedule changes so that is why for example the A310 were constantly changed.

PS: LV-ARG: did you go to Kimochi a couple of weeks ago? (because I saw your nickname there).

AeroArgentina:

Not any time soon... The way things are right now in Argentina the question everyone is asking is which airlines are going to survive the crisis. The situation is trully frightning. Analysist are predicting that this thing will only get worse before it gets any better. With the corralito measure the airlines are having a hard time transfering their lease, insurance, and maintenace payments abroad. As this wasn't enough the oil companies like shell, are now demaning that fuel payments be made with dollars instead of pesos. All this with the fact that the airlines are seeing 30% less passengers for their summer period. Go to http://www.salvamosaerolineas.com.ar to get all the info on the situation.

No they did not. The only rights they had were to funnel pax onto their MIA-Buenos Aires route ...
