I wanted to share pictures from my trip to South America (the Argentina part of it) back in May-June this year with you guys. I hope you enjoy it.
I also want to thank all members for posting their wonderful TRs. I know it's not an easy thing and takes a long time to create these TRs and I have been too lazy to create my TR up until now but I thought to share the Argentina portion of it here and hope you guys like the pictures.
Toronto's Pearson Terminal 1- This terminal is the main home of Air Canada and has a very good vibe and energy. I really like its seashell like architecture of the check in hall. My flight was originally supposed to take off at 10:40 pm but since our aircraft was stuck in New York La Guardia due to bad weather, it did not arrive in Toronto until 12 am and we boarded the aircraft shortly after for the 1 am departure. Because of the delay Air Canada gave passengers a $10 voucher to purchase food at the terminal, which is clearly not enough to buy any main meal but anyways.
Air Canada flies to Buenos Aires via Santiago de Chile, with a layover of about 2 hours in SCL. When the plane lands in SCL, everyone has to disembark, the ones going to Santiago go to passport control and the rest of passengers continuing to Buenos Aires should go through security again, go to the main departure area, wait a bit and board the plane again.

Saying welcome in different languages, including Persian to the left :)
Going toward the International departure area, which is at the end of this long walkway- right below this walkway is the Transborder (flights to USA) Air Canada flights section of the terminal.
A look down at the deserted transborder section of terminal 1, most flights to USA are during the day or in the evening
View from the end of the long walkway
Going down towards the Int'l gates
Duty free shops- most of these stores are luxurious brands and very pricey, not good for normal shopping
The very cool thing about the Int'l part of Terminal 1 is that it looks like a huge lounge with very modern and comfy seats and ipads installed on every single one of them for the use of passengers free of charge.
The famous artwork in the center of the shopping area
EK- fully boraded and off to Dubai shortly after
Board shows our flight's delayed status
The only area that was not yet refurbished and turned into the lounge style seating area was our gate here in the pic below

And our route
Now going back to my gate for borading
My comfy seat
The legroom was great but my pic turned blurry so I did not add it
And off we go- The flight time to SCL was around 10 hours and 50 minutes, the good thing was that I did not have any seatmates so I had the 2 seats to relax and rest more
Blurry pic but below us is downtown Toronto and the CN tower in red next to the Rogers Centre stadium in blue
Beautiful mood lighting throughout the flight
Meal service about to begin
My meal, which was pasta with beef and tasted very good
Shortly after we entered Chile from the ocean
Interesting huge pool next to the ocean
Then breakfast was served and I chose egg and potatoes
Getting closer to SCL and flying over the amazingly beautiful Andes mountain range

The Executive class
Walking towards security
Going upstairs after security at the air side. SCL is a nice airport and has a good vibe, has lots of shops and restos too, the only thing is that seats are a bit old but still nice and comfortable.
In some places there were these weird metal things that blocked the view
Beautiful LAN A340
Boarding our flight again to Buenos Aires
The flight was half full
Ready to take off
View of the whole terminal
Flying right above Santiago but unfortunately the city center was covered in smog as well as most of the city but you can see the whole city in the following pix

The meal was a turkey sandwich

Outside of the terminal
Tienda Leon bus is a great way to get to the Centro of the Buenos Aires. It's cheap and very comfy and when it gets to the bus terminal, a taxi will take you to your hotel in the centro. Price for bus and taxi are included in the ticket, I think it was around $12 USD.
Some touristic bonus pictures of the beautiful and amazing Buenos Aires

I hope everyone liked this TR. Would be glad to hear your comments or any questions.
All the best :)
