Experiences with claiming expenses from Aerolineas Argentinas?

Hi all, did a search but couldn't find anything.
So I'm stuck here in El Calafate due to the strike and the next flight out Aerolineas Argentinas can put me on to any of the destinations I was planning on going to is November 2nd (original plan was Rio de Janeiro until Dec 1st and then Sao Paulo) The guy at the counter said we can claim any expenses through their website but I'm just wondering whether anyone has experience with this in the past.

When our flight was originally canceled yesterday, I was planning on claiming any expenses from my Chase Sapphire Reserve under Trip Delay but with me now needing to cover an additional five days of accommodations and food (on top of yesterday), I'm not sure if the 500USD will be enough for two of us (other person is not claimable)

I'd appreciate anyone's anecdotes or experiences!

Thanks in advance!

(or if anyone has any alternative ideas about getting to either of the above destinations with minimal additional cost/inconvenience, that would be helpful too (ie take flight to XXX and then a X hour bus)

I dont have any first hand experience with Aerolineas and claiming expenses, and while I can understand the above posters skepticism, I would suggest that you keep proper records of each and every expense you incur, would suggest you attempt to charge all of these with a credit card and request invoices, receipts, tickets, etc.

If you dont mind, please come back and report your experience(s) as you go through the process.

Yeah, this will be my first time dealing with a claim, so I have been meticulously compiling all of my receipts, invoices, original/revised itineraries, etc. and keeping track of all new expenses and which expenses I have to cancel.

I'll be filing for Trip Cancellation insurance for my onward travel and for Trip Delay for the new expenses. Once my claim has been processed, I'll post a report in the CSR/CSP travel insurance claim thread in flyertalk

On a positive note, my re-booked flight for December 2nd was revised and updated to today, so I won't have to worry about incurring as many additional expenses as I thought.
