On a recent Austral Airlines flight from Mendoza to Cordoba in Argentina we were rudely refused boarding. When questioned the airline official said our checked bags were overweight ( about 18 kg cf allowance of 15 kg ) and we must pay excess baggage before we could board. This was most surprising as we were not aware of the problem,...

I booked three domestic flights with Aerolineas and two were on their regional partner Austral. No problems with the flights or timeliness. I think the Embraer regional jets used by Austral are more comfortable and roomy than Aerolineas' 737s and the Embraer seats even have small entertainment screens (can be hard to get earphones though). You get snacks on longer...

Nice planes. IGR has a weird set up to get to your gate. Pass through gate 3 area, then through Gate 2 area then into gate 1 area. Just keep going, you'll find it. Also they did not let us go through security until the time on our boarding pass, about 45 min before the flight. No idea why, there...

On the plus side, the flight was on time and the landing in Rio was good. However the in-flight service was poor. The cabin crew were totally uninterested in their passengers and paid no attention to safety, e.g. did not check that seats were in the upright position for landing or that hand baggage was under the seats. In an...

If nothing else, this makes for a great and most unexpected story. On 12 April we flew from Iguazu to Mendoza with a transit stop for 25 minutes in Salta. Some people got off in Salta and a few got on. A member of the cabin crew welcomed everyone onboard the flight to Mendoza and suddenly there was a huge...

Small aircraft, Embraer 190. Check-in efficient and nice. Boarding - not the nicest or most helpful staff. Departure and arrival on time. Some level of turbulensen the whole flight, i.e. No service of drinks or snacks. We flew premium economy. Plenty of leg-room, good and wide seats. Old completely non-functioning in-flight entertainment.
