Hi Bob, is this for travel purpose or do you plan to immigrate to Colombia?

comment Why don't they give you a sweet on take-off anymore?
@uncovery That's really not my experience. I just recently flew with Swiss a couple of times and I got chocolate on each leg.

comment Is “Flying Return” the only available loyalty program for Air India?
That would be great! I have already quite a lot of M&M miles and I'm always looking for more. Thanks!

I'm not really sure if I understand your answer correctly, but do you suggest that I should try to request the miles in the Miles and More program?

comment What are the advantages of booking through a booking site instead of booking directly with the hotel?
I think there is another major advantage: Using booking.com you are able to get a very quick overview about a lot of different hotels that are available at a location. Furthermore, booking.com has it's own loyalty program.

comment When picking a “luxury hostel” for a business trip, how to ensure it'll be quiet enough?
Some hostels explicitly advertise themselves as party hostels. I avoid at least definitively avoid these hostels!

I would "accidentally" lose my passport right before the flight. Wouldn't that be an option?

comment How long does it take to cross the border at Iguazu Falls?
I did this a month ago with a car. On the way form Argentina to Brazil, it took about 15 minutes. On the way back it took more than 60 minutes, but it seemed to be the rush hour in the evening. I would recommend to visit both sides. The Argentinian side offers way more things to do and I think it was much nicer to walk there. On the other hand, on the Brazilian side, you have a very good overview about the falls and you can get very very close to the falls.

comment Do Argentinian ATMs only accept 4 digit pins?
I'm back from Argentina. AS @user1712 already mentioned, HSBC accept 6 digits pin codes, but most other ATMs do not. Since it is a little bit cumbersome to just use HSBC ATMs, I would strongly recommend to change the PIN to 4 digits before going to Argentina.

comment Which loyality program should I use for my Aerolineas Argentinas flights?
After a couple of emails, the E-ticket number and a invoice was enough and they accepted it as a proof. So the problem is solved. I'll add an answer.

comment Which loyality program should I use for my Aerolineas Argentinas flights?
Hmm not 100% sure, they write on their homepage: "Please upload proof of your flight, ticket number and reservation class". I attached my booking confirmation, but this wasn't enough.

Thanks, this sounds not too bad, but I'm more interested in a little bit more serious hiking.

comment What is the best way to get from the airport to center of Buenos Aires?
@MarkMayo THanks for the info... Is this their website? tiendaleon.com.ar/articulo/RCENEZE/24-12-2013/15.00/4/1 The prices there seem to be a lot higher.

I'd like to know if the borders authority will prevent it, or if there are any other problems I'm likely to face.

To add on this answer: In Switzerland it is 3 times, starting with the left cheek.
