21 November 2018, we arrived at Cordoba airport at 0630 for a 0900 flight to Buenos Aires with an 1145 connecting flight to Iguazu Falls. Flight 891 was delayed 2 hours with no explanation why. Personnel at the gate assured us we would be able to catch our connecting flight because it was also delayed, it wasn't. When we arrived at Buenos Aires we had a lot of trouble just finding an Andes ticket counter. When we finally found their counter we explained our dilemma to a male agent and he informed us it was our booking agents fault we missed our connecting flight even though their flight was two hours late. He could care less we were now stuck in the airport with no way of getting to the Falls that day. After many phone calls to our agent in the USA, we managed to get a return flight to Cordoba. We didn't get to our hotel until 2100 that evening, a whole day wasted and our three day trip to Iguazu Falls cancelled. Very disappointing to say the least.
Going to Puerto Madryn, our flight was in time.
Returning to BA our departure was delayed 3 hours... sitting at the airport. No announcement by text message before getting to the airport.
Not complying or not enforcing regulations in Argentina is the common thing. These small companies have few planes and cant keep their schedules.
