Argentianas: A- OK
|January. Cold. The trip ahead -- daunting.
Out of New Hampshire by car.
On to Miami.
Then on to Buenos Aires.
A side trip to Santiago, Chile and then a re-tracing of our steps
all the way back home.
through all of this Aerolineas Argentianas was the constant. More
than A- OK.
We were greeted, serviced by, ministered to, informed by, made to
feel comfortable by a universe of competent and friendly employees
all the way through – on the phone, at the booths, by the gates, in
the planes, at the baggage claims.
The entire experience was a kind of reflection of the warmth,
hospitality and efficiency of the world class city of Buenos Aires.
This airline, that speaks in the accents of Argentina, has been
around now more than half a century. It was the first to complete a
round-the-world flight by a commercial airliner in 1961 and a
trans-polar flight by a commercial airliner in 1980.
With its excellent dollar-to-peso exchange rate,
the many things it has to offer, Argentina has become a very
desirable tourist destination especially during North America’s
winter months. Which is probably why there was barely an empty seat
on our flights.
But is was clear when the going got rough,
Aerolineas Argentianas was up to any challenge – A-OK!
