US now limiting Aerolíneas Argentinas’ flights

Tue May 18, 2021 11:50 pm

To combat recent restrictions on US arrivals at EZE, the US is going to put restrictions on Aerolíneas. Total reductions about 18% on their current ops.

Sounds like a big blow to them.

Don't worry about simpleflying, I cringe when I open their articles but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I suspect this nothing more than a power play..Quite a bit can happen in a month. The DOT has already used this method in various cases involving India and China. A resolution was agreed to before the sanctions went into effect.

The restrictions placed by Argentina are not specific to US arrivals, but to all international arrivals. It just happens that US arrival/departures represent most of the current international traffic in Argentina and it involves AA. DL, UA and AR.

Quid pro quo.

Well, they are apparently restricting departure and arrival times so as to avoid overcrowding the testing facilities. While that is a reasonable public health policy goal, it's also possible that the arrival/departure slots being offered to U.S. carriers might be commercially infeasible; i.e. a 2 PM arrival at EZE and a 5 PM departure. If the U.S. carriers are getting much worse slots then the Argentine government would be putting its thumb on the scale unfairly to benefit AR.

The restrictions have been in place for a couple of months now. What drew the ire of the US DOT just now (at the request of the US airlines operating in Argentina, no doubt) is the fact that last week AR pretty much doubled overnight the number of nonstops to MIA, while AA, DL and UA continue to be restricted and having to submit to the ANAC on a biweekly basis their intended schedules to Argentina - for approval or rejection. Certainly not fair play; Argentina had it coming but then, it is hard to tell where the ANAC ends and AR begins under the current administration in Buenos Aires.
