Flying from Santiago to BA return

LAN quoted me $US450 for a return flight Santiago/BA - BA/Santiago in mid July. I am flying on a Saturday . Does this fare sound reasonable or reliable alternatives that can be booked on the web in English ?

I think that you might be able to get a cheaper flight than that. It sounds a bit high.

Granted that July is winter holidays / skiing season here, but still too expensive IMO.

You might want to check Sky Airlines and Aerolíneas Argentinas.

Agree with otroviaje. At the present time, their fares for that route can be as low as US$ 199 (final, including all taxes and charges) for a round trip BUE-SCL-BUE. That's what I paid recently for a trip in September.

Are you doing a same day return? That's usually a reason for higher fares, though.

Have you checked with any travel agent? At expedia.com you can get tickets on LAN from US$ 234 to US$ 262 (final price, including taxes and fees), departing SCL on July 14th and returning on July 17th.
