Flights to Argentina
Unfortunately Aerolineas Argentinas stopped their direct flight between Auckland and Buenos Aires in June 2012. Previously it was possible to fly in Argentina direct in 12-13 hours.
So unless you feel like adding on a trip to Sydney and back with Aerolineas, or travelling all the way around the world with Emirates, there is really only one decent flight route left: LAN Chile, via Santiago de Chile. However, since there's a massive lack of competition on this route the prices tend to be very expensive. Flight costs in December and Janauary are pretty near impossible to afford.
We're hopeful that Air New Zealand will start flying to Argentina to take advantage of increased rugby travel, but for now that's just a hope. (if you're the active type, then try petitioning both Air NZ and Aerolineas Argentinas!)
