    If Argentina is serious about wanting to put a stop to flights out of South America, then they will stop them, as they have done in recent years, but they have to be mindful that the international community is watching. Once again, there will have been a further breach of the '99 Agreement, by Argentina. But the FCO and FIG will also have to step up to the mark and ensure that no charter flights or even private flights come out of Argentina. After all, fair's fair.

    Yes, and they are watching London and its record about the dispute, going on 187 years.

    Argentina is serious about the Malvinas issue and the repudiation of that “Foradori-Duncan ”Understanding“” that never passed through our parliament...

    The currently existing Punta Arenas-Monte Placentero route will not be affected other that we Argies will request LATAM 2 (two) monthly stops at Rio Gallegos...

    The São Paulo- Monte Placentero route in its present form is hanging from a veeeeery thin thread..
    If them Kelpers want a northbound commercial route..., I Think they will have to accept a much bigger Argentinean participation...

    After all..., fair's fair...

    Tinkle old fruit, where is this mystical “ Malvinas Islands ”? It is internationally called the “ FALKLAND ISLANDS ” and recognised worldwide as such.

    We will have to wait and see the outcome first off.

    No doubt contingency plans have been made for each possible outcome.

    Very much doubt that any of them will include “a much bigger Argentinean participation...” though.

    Unfortunately, Think, the last time Argentina decided that the airlink ought to be cut between Chile and Mt Pleasant, it did affect the Rio Gallegos flight. For two years, no less. So don't Think for one minute you will get a second flight out of it, as it isn't down to you or your government. When you say “they will have to accept a much bigger Argentine participation”, to whom do you refer?

    As always with you Kelpers... the only way is attrition...
    We will wait and see what the Shileans have to say in 2019-2020..., whilst we Argies utilize all the business leverage tools at our disposition...

    Last time the Chilean told us Argies that they had to respect the contract with the Engrish because Chile had an binding treaty with the EU...
    AFAIK..., them Engrish will be soon OUT of the EU...

    Anglo Turnip just above...

    As I previously corrected the title of your linked MercoPress article...:

    ***“No one from the Fernandez TEAM has spoken officially on the Malvinas issue”..., yet...***”
    Infform yourself..., Turnip...
    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    Anyhow..., using MercoPress to inform oneself..., or try prove a point about anything Argentinean is like using Yankee Fox News to inform onself or prove a point about anything Yankee-Doodle landish...
    (...Or the Sun..., if you happen to be an Engrish Turnip...)

    Dispute, 3rd-World Betts? You must mean Argentina's dispute. Britain does not have one. As we keep telling the UN, Britain has no doubts as to its sovereignty over the Falkland Islands.

    Thunk, et al, what's the to-do? If, buts, maybes? The islanders opted for a 2nd flight under certain terms. If the terms change, then maybe they will no longer want a 2nd flight? Up to them.

    What would be good to see tested in a court of law is the legality of Argentina stopping the flight. All we want is a flight between the Falklands and Brazil. If Argentina doesn’t want it, okay. We’ll just leave out the stop in Argentina and then everyone’s happy.
