EZE and AEP Baggage Handling Strikes - January 2018

https://tn.com.ar/sociedad/demoras-e...leteros_843475

Not sure how long they are going to last. Yesterday AM, a friend waited about 2 hours. Yesterday afternoon, I waited over 3 hours. Today, the news was reporting average delays of 4 hours. Just be prepared. The bags will eventually arrive, probably.

And all because they didn't get paid when they decided to take a day off work.

Has this been resolved? Are all airlines affected?

Looks like it has, if this article is current:

It seems to have been sorted out.

In the event of a handling agents strike, all airlines except Aerolíneas/Austral and American Airlines will be affected. AR/AU and AA are the only two airlines in this country to operate their own handling - the rest are hostages of state company Intercargo.

Thanks. And thankfully, we are on AA!
