Southern Winds Passenger Reviews and Southern Winds Customer Trip Reports

While vacationing in Argentina, I purchased a ticket from SW from Mendoza to
Aeroparque. Shortly after purchasing the tickets, we heard that they were having
financial difficulties and were starting to cancel some of their routes. Sure
enough, they cancelled the MDZ to AEP flights. When I went to request a refund or
for the airline to re-book me with another airline, SW employees refused. At this
time, I would warn everyone to NOT book anything with airline as they are so
unstable. Despite talking to various people with the airline, they refused to
provide any compensation and basically had a "too bad" attitude about the whole
ordeal. As a result, we paid for two tickets and got nothing for them. I would not
recommend this airline to anyone at this time.

Flew on various Argentine domestic flights with SW (Iguazu, Mendoza, Aeroparque), and SW was a good
experience. Planes are old (ex-Varig B737-200), but well maintained and good legroom. Small but
decent snack and generous drinks, also alcohol and all for free. One tip: when booking from abroad,
book via their website and pay in Argentine Peso, do not book via their call center in Madrid, which
is actually Air Europa's call center, where you are charged in EUR and where you pay much more.

We researched tariffs on Southern Winds for a forthcoming trip MIA/EZE
and found they offered the best deal through a local MIA agency. They sold us a roundtrip in their
so-called Surf Class which offers 43 inches between seats and a 110 degree recline for $967.90
roundtrip including tax. The agent assured us these are business class seats in a
2x2x2 configuration in the 767 cabin. Southern Winds also offers business class with 59 inches between
seats and a 150 degree recline. We became familiar with the carrier last year while in Argentina
but found a local agent in Charlottesville had never heard of the airline and one Miami agent said
the surf fare was $1,600. We are looking forward to sampling this carrier next month.

Just last month I tried Southern Winds, expecting it would be a similar experience to that of flying
domestic with them. It was even better. There was fair space, and the service was excellent, almost
as good as the one I had received on Swissair and Sabena before (too bad the two of them are gone).
The flight felt like a five hour flight instead of an almost 9 hours flight. Their 767s felt very
smooth and clean. The catering was quite good, and the magazine WINDS is very entertaining .It would
be nice if this airline got some rating even though its only international flights are to Miami and
Madrid. I now recommend SW to everyone that goes to BUE.
