I will be travelling to Peru in February. I intend to buy domestic air tickets.from Lima to Cuzco, Cuzco to Arequipa, and Arequipa to Lima. I am having trouble figuring out the reliability of the different airlines. I will only be in Peru for a week and need to have the air travel work efficiently.
Reading the differents posts, it appears that Lan is the best airline but also it rip-offs foreigners. Star Peru has many flights but are they reliable? From what I have been reading, they use old planes. Peruvian Airlines' CEO (and owner) has just been reported to be involved in the drug trade which probably means that this airline might be history. Taca appears to be a decent airline.
Does anyone have an opinion on how reliable the different airlines are. Is it worth to pay the extra money to Lans for the reliability factor?
Any thoughts? Thanks.
