Man, look at Air Comet's punctuality on EZE-MAD. Despite Air Madrid's takeover by them, few things have changed.

I flew JFK-EZE-JFK on AA last year and both the outbound and the return were right on schedule. EZE is not a pretty airport other than the main terminal, but it is easy to use.

I suppose, if you like:

wow, another Rat Maze!

First off, the Delta check-in desks were somewhat understaffed and the line moved slowly, but that's expected.

What's up with the airport tax being payed at the airport? Another rat maze...

Long-ass security line - rat maze

Immigration - uggh " "

And what the hell is up with the line to get into the boarding area? Oh right security checks. Still, another rat maze.

Ezeiza is small and compact, but the lines are unbearable and so is the smell in the bathroom.

This is not the best image for Marsans Group who has signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus Industrie in order to acquire a huge of Airbus equipment including the 350 and 380 series.
Is A7 Air Comet getting troubles with the rotation of their aircrafts for their long-hauls? Lack of aircrafts?

EZE needs a lot of improvement, but I did not find the rat maze that much different than other major Airports. MIA for example, especially since 9/11 is a pain, first you have the long line to check in, then you need to carry your bag to another spot for security, then take the long walk and the train to the gate .... and when you arrive, if you are not a US citizen the line for immigration can take several hours.
What about MAD? you go up and down the stairs to take the train for the T4-S
Again, EZE is far from perfect, but if you arrive with enough time ahead of your flight it's not that bad
