    2nd flight- my money is on Latam holding off until they see who wins and the water temp after the Arg Presidential Elections in October before signing.
    Argentina is a HUGE market of Latam,s and no way will they want to risk any upset from a new Govt that is anti 2nd flight by announcing soon the start of one just a few weeks after that election.
    I maybe wrong- but that is where my penny is at the moment.

    Think- so far nothing appears to be signed and public- you cannot book flights or get prices
    etc. Barry is good and being unspecific and avoiding hard facts. In effect NOTHING has advanced since the planned flight was first announced almost a year ago. Indeed it has slipped backwards - initially Barry ey all were hinting at a proving flight in march 2019 and service in operation by last Month- now officially slipped to early November and hints at December.
    My bet is if you fancy popping over for a Falklands pint- or even a glass of Malbec with me - you will have to nip down to Rio Gallegos!
