Airfare to Buenos Aires

I'm planning a trip to Buenos Aires for the last week of March 2006. I live in Baltimore, on the East Coast of the U.S. The lowest fare I can find is approximately $700. I'd like to know if this fare is great - grab it now; average or high - hold out for a lower fare. I've never traveled to South America, so I don't know what the range should be. Thanks in advance for your comments.

It's not "great" for March (kind of the tail end of "high season", but it's pretty good. You might find something closer to $600 if you do a little searching, my guess is from Baltimore or DC you're not likely to find something less than that.

Hi. I fly often from Miami to Buenos Aires, a good wholesaler I used for years is
Vista Sud America, you can e mail them or call them . Last time I flew Lan I paid less.

Graziella5b,

I just Googled Vista Sud America and didn't get any info (other than this post) . . . do you have their email?

I'm interested in cheaper airfare in March also . . . I'll be traveling from Dallas and the lowest fare I have found is $843 +/-.

Thanks,
Sandy (in Denton)

843 is an average price from DFW. Another good source....check www.carbone-travel.com This agency specializes in fares to the southern part of South America. They usually offer the best fares in the market....although sometimes you can get better fares directly from the airline web site. In your case a good place to check is aa.com, since American offers a direct flight to BsAs from DFW.....the fare you see this week will not be the fare you see next week....

Hi, I also heard that carbone-travel.com is good but you should do what I often fail to do compare both Vista and Carbone por specific dates and flights. I have always been happy with Vista.

Thanks Graziella5b . . . I'll call them tomorrow.

Drdawggy, I went to Carbone and they are exactly the same price as AA's website. All things being equal, I'd rather book w/AA and get the bonus miles for booking on-line. If I don't find something a lot less w/Vista, I think I'll wait and see if fares will go down. If not, I'll just have to pick another destination for spring break.

Thanks for the replies,
Sandy (in Denton)
