Delta flies their A330-900neo with enclosed business class suites, while American flies their 777-200 with reverse herringbone lie-flat seats.

I’ve been to Buenos Aires several times and love it. There’s a very good kosher food scene and Argentine dining is known for its meat, though there are also some truly incredible gelato stores and bakeries, plus lots to see and explore. Read more in my 2012 trip notes2018 trip notes, and on the Argentina Master Thread on DDF. You can also venture out of Buenos Aires to explore stunning Patagonia or Iguazu Falls.

The dollar goes very far here, be sure to bring cold hard cash that you can trade with locals or even pay with at restaurants and stores at highly favorable exchange rates.

Plus, Argentinian President Javier Milei is a true friend of the Jewish people and is in the middle of attempting to fix an Argentina economy that has been broken for a very long time. With visas no longer required for Americans, there’s never been a better time to book travel!

“Unfortunately, the AA fare isn’t available via AMEX.”

Have you tried to call in?
I have had success booking fares that weren’t available in the past

AA has bee releasing very limited fares to AMEX and Chase. Spoke with Amex yesterday. Not only is this an issue, but after May 1, you may not be able to earn AA point if you book on Amex or UR sites. Both are trying to negotiate becoming “preferrd travel agents.” Bye bye 1 more CC benefit???


If I had to guess, I would say both Amex and chase would become preferred Partners if they have an interest.

My understanding is that it will be more of an issue for the more concierge type of travel agents.


Both Amex and Chase are not travel agencies, they book via a third party who will most likely be preferred agencies!


Use advantage biz to bypass

What is this?


What fare class is this


“Bookable on Priceline and refundable for 24 hours or bookable direct from the airline”

From priceline “Free cancellation until 23:29PM EST on 03/01/2024. After that time, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Cancellation and change penalties apply.”


What’s the weather like in the summer? Weather site say 50s. Does it feel more like NY summer 50s or winter 50s?


Flying to Buenos Aires tomorrow!


Very cool! Milei needs our support.

When I went to BA at the end of 2023, I flew Delta and it was on the 767-400
