My pervious TR:

The day of the flight:
After 4 great days in the capital of Argentina and one of the most interesting cities in South America, and after meeting my family (I'm Argentinian) , It was the time to heading out to the south and see one of the most beautiful nature attractions - Perito Moreno Glacier near El Calafate!!!!
The time of the flight was 6:00AM, I rent an aprtment in Palermo, 15 min from the Aeroparque by Taxi. I woke up at 4:15AM and took a taxi to the airport at 4:30AM.
The Argentinian regional airport are great, better than Greece&Turkey airport and some airport in the USA. Everything was clean and nice, there is a big choice of shop and Airbridges, but while I was visiting in the Airport, only Austral's E190 were connected to the terminal by airbridges, so I needed to go and return to/from the planes by bus.
The check-in and security took 20 min at all, It was a line in to the check-in counters. I got the left-window seat in the first line of the Economy Class zone (3A).
I was very tierd so I was sitting in the banch and waiting for the boarding, No spotting from AEP in the flight.

Boarding was completed at 5:50AM, We want to gate 7 and go down by stairs to the bus that took us to the plane. It was a full flight!

Our plane, LV-CXT. The plane had changed from Boeing 737-700 to Boeing 737-800!

Take off were while it was dark outside, I took bad photos, so I decided to don't share them here.

Economy plus seats (Same service, different seats).

I went to the restrooms durning the flight, when I returned from the lavatories, the flight crew block the alise (only one row from me) with the snack, so I was stucking at the galley for 40 min. :( :( Hate that)
We got snacks 1 hour after the departure. It was a nice box with stickers with one of AR planes and some tourist place in Argentina that had published on the box.
The box included: Chocolate-Waffle, Orange Juice, Jamon (Pork) snack and yougurt healthy snack. The crew was serving us with light drinks, water and coffe/tea. I chose to drink Coke.

Aerolineas Argentinas is a great airline. The 737-800 was new and comfortable! I liked the Sky Interior.
The snacks were great and enough for 3 hours flight. The crew was cold and not nice, you can think about my example.

Great Airline and Great Plane!!!! Hope that you've enjoyed from reading this report!!!
