The main worries would be if the StarPeru flight is severly delayed or cancelled, or if the Cuzco flight is cancelled.

Anyone have a feeling of what this risk would be? Likely? very likely? Not very likely?... I have never been in Peru before so I'm not familiar with how common problems are.

How expensive is it typically to buy LAN tickets at the airport, for the same day? I can't decide if I should do that or book in advance (depends on the risk I guess)

Can't speak to the issues regarding reliability, but I noticed that, for the LIM-CUS tickets I've been looking at, exchange privileges are pretty liberal. Some of that may be because us foreigners aren't even allowed to buy the cheap tickets; they're reserved specifically for residents.
