There are two airports you can fly out of Buenos Aires, the smaller and more regional, AEP, is what we ultimately chose for our flight to Iguazu Falls. One, the prices were far cheaper. Two, the airport is closer and easier to get too. Three, there are far more flights between AEP and IGR than EZE and IGR. We ended up on lowcost carrier Andes Lineas Aereas. This was a brand new airline to try and prices are amazing: roughly $50 or less if you book far enough in advance. Even last minute we were able to score under a $100 flight. With that said…forget about your knees because if you’re over 5’6 you won’t be feeling them anytime soon after the flight.

The Seat situation:
We were late taking off and as a result sat on the runway for a while. Thankfully the captain opened up the cockpit for pictures. I always like to be tickled before handling a 737 from the captain’s chair.
Back in the economy cabin…this is how much legroom you’ll have if you’re roughly 6′ tall. Hold your breath. I couldn’t physically sit with my legs straight forward while fully seated. Thankfully, no one showed up in the middle seat and Dave moved to the aisle. Both of us, Dave at 6’2, sat angled for the duration of the flight.
The crew was very friendly and midway through the flight we had our choice of coffee, tea, or a soda.
Would I fly this again? Man…I’m not sure its worth the discount if you had a full row and are roughly 6′ tall because where would we put our legs? If I knew we’d have 2 people in a row? I’d probably do it again, in fact, it may even be worth buying the middle seat if the price is cheap enough. One cool thing about landing at IGR is the walk to the terminal.
