AR1825 - Economy - El Calafate -> Buenos Aires - Boeing 737-800You are here
After spending 4 days in the gorgeous region of Patagonia (I know, 4 days are too short by we don't have that much time), and the last day taking picture at Perito Moreno glacier under a very nice sunny weather, we arrive at the airport after a relatively short taxi ride, 700 Pesos (14 euros that time, less than 10 euros today). The terminal is quite small and calm.
I have some time to finish my empanada for dinner:
It's time to enter the building:
Only four daily flights, I imagine in summer there are more. Ours is naturally the last. Notice there is one flight for Bariloche:
There some people at the check-in counters. However we only have cabine luggages, and already have mobile boarding passes so no need to stand in line:
The safety check was quite fast:
There are already some people waiting here, the boarding zone is nice with some natural light:
The view over Lago Argentino is really nice! Our aircraft has just landed, after a flight from Buenos Aires AEP:
The jetbridge is deployed and the colors of the sky are becoming really beautiful:
The boarding starts:
Nice colors and the terminal building on the left:
After getting to my seat 27A, I have this view of the terminal building and the air traffic control tower:
The seat is that same as for the outbound flight from AEP, quite thick and comfortable but the pitch is a little bit reduced, especially for my 193cm:
The flight is again quite full:
Time to take off, on time:
We fly over Lago Argentino, in the meantime it's getting dark outside:
The service begins, just a not too small pack of cereals for everyone, with a cold drink and I took Coca Cola. There is still no hot drink like coffee or tea.
There is some light down there, but I could identify the city:
After a flight of 2h30, we are approaching Buenos Aires:
The roads are really… straight, remind my of the US:
Landing on time, no PAXbus for us this time:
No need to wait for baggage:
The city center is quite close, the taxi (remises) is quite cheap, we need to get a ticket with the amount to pay from the numerous machines in the arrival area, it is quite easy.
There is a little bit traffic during the night, we arrive at our hotel not far from Obelisco after 25 minutes:
Thank you for reading this (short) flight report!

Some distances, I think there are some errors since the distance between Seoul and Tokyo is much less than 3000km:

With beautiful colors of autumn:

Cheers! For good health! (especially at this particular moment!)
El Calafate - FTE
Buenos Aires - AEP
FTE: Good for a small regional airport. AEP: Close to city center, taxi and bus are available. AR: The catering is too simple for a 3 hour flight. Otherwise it is a correct flight.
