Is this AA955? I was booked to fly this once, back on June 15, 2001 (I'm an airline nerd, so I remember such dates).
However, I got to JFK
and the flight had been canceled. Apparently Aerolineas Argentinas employees were striking, the airline was about to go out of business, and they were blockading all AA
planes at EZE
! Literally forming human chains around the planes in acts of protest. I think AA
own stakes in AR
? Could be wrong about that.
Anyway, I got booked on AA951 instead, JFK
, and then I took the ferry from Montevideo to Buenos Aires. It was a 763 JFK
, then change in aircraft to MVD
. Good flight, comfortable, pretty long. Don't remember much else. Have fun!
