Mendoza to Valparaiso Early October. Bus, SKY Air or LATAM?

Hi. I plan to go from Mendoza to Valparaiso in early October. A day's delay would really mess up my planned schedule. My initial plan was to take the bus but I've read some recent posts and it looks like I risk a lengthy delay due to weather as well as sheer terror (I have vertigo). I've also looked at Sky Airlines who are the cheapest by a mile but their reviews aren't so good. Are they considered safe? reliable? Would you take them or pay a LOT more for LATAM?

It is pretty difficult to predict the weather each year, but it seems that the chance of the road being closed in October would be slight. The road is quite nice and the views amazing.

However, if you have any doubts then take a flight to Santiago.

There is a shortage of airlines in South America; so be sure to have a back up plan if one does not produce.
