This is flight LA7670 from Buenos Aires to Neuquen, operated by Latam
It was operated by a 15 year old Airbus A320 (LV-BRY)
Take off was programmed to be at 7:10 and estimated arrival time was 8:50

We boarded the aircraft at 6:35. The aircraft was first boarded by Premium Latam Pass or OneWorld status members and premium economy travelers. As you can see legroom is good but could be better.

We took off from runway 13 at 7:14 . We maintained a speed of 370 knots and a cruising altitude of 34000 ft.

Some minutes after take off, crew handed out this little paperboard artefact to hold a smartphone or a tablet to watch during the flight, very nice detail. Latam planes are equipped with their entertainment streaming system Latam Play. But they do not have WiFi on board.

This was the only service offered. Sadly, over the last years, airline’s service have been reduced to make traveling cheaper but Latam has always had a very good service on board. I was shocked about it but that’s their service now.

We landed into Neuquén’s capital at 8:50 exactly as it was estimated. Next to us a Norwegian Boeing 737-800 with the Astor Piazzolla livery (LV-HQH)

Conclusion

To sum it up it was a good flight, on time, fast and efficient boarding, good legroom and great and helpful crew.
Thing to improve: ad WiFi to the aircraft and a better onboard service and even more during lunch times.
Do I recommend traveling Latam for national flights?? Yes, of course I do. Latam is a great airline, very punctual and with friendly crew. Sadly it will no longer operate flights inside Argentina. Ticket price $2700 ARS / $60 USD (July 2019) AEP-NQN tram only.
