    Welcome to the site and thanks for sharing this report with us!

    I'm always surprised by the level of amenities on domestic flights in South America, what is average for you is better than what other countries offer on domestic products. The snack box looks poor when you consider this is a lunchtime flight, so some sort of sandwich would have been better catering (I often see these offered on other South American carriers).

    The B737 looks great in AR's new livery. I love the non-circular CFM56s. Interesting that this plane was bought used from Australia, is it common for AR to take second hand aircraft?

      Thanks for the welcome

      The Flight Food has always been poor in regional flights in AR
      especially in short flights of 2 hours of duration

      80 % of the fleet is leased and now It is in the process of replacement the 737-700 to a new fleet of pretty new first hand boeing 737-800
