I have 2h40 between two international flights at Ministro Pistarini Airport, in Buenos Aires. Am I screwed?

Coming from Santiago and going to Brazil, both flights are in Terminal A.

The tickets are from different companies (coming with Qantas via LAN, going with United via Turkish).

Are they on the same ticket, or different tickets? (Makes a big difference to the risk of problems) – Gagravarr Jun 12 '14 at 22:25
oh yeah, I forgot about that! – Roberto Jun 12 '14 at 22:31
What are the on-time stats like for your inbound Qantas flight? And if there's enough of a delay that means you can't make the onward flight, how much of an issue is that? – Gagravarr Jun 12 '14 at 22:56
I don't know about the stats, where can I find that? If I lose that flight it would be very bad since these flights are already too expensive. – Roberto Jun 12 '14 at 23:37
You are right, it's Qantas via LAN. – Roberto Jun 13 '14 at 3:19

While this may be my personal experience, it can help others, so I'm posting the answer to my own question.

It all worked out well. I had plenty of time to do everything. I even had a problem with one of my luggage that was lost in Santiago, I had time to wait a lot for it and to register a complain with the company.

It's not a very big airport, 2h40 is enough unless everything goes wrong for you.

Both times I arrived there there were terrible queues at customs. The first time in 2011 it took me about 2 hours from plane to the curb, the second time in 2012, it took about 1 1/2 hours. Hopefully that has changed since then. – Andrey Chernyakhovskiy Nov 24 '14 at 20:20
