I was on a flight from Ushuaia to EZE airport in Buenos Aires, with a connection onward to Miami. As we were approaching the airport, the pilot mumbles something in Spanish apologizing for the inconvenience ... we were landing on the other side of town, at AEP airport! So a leisurely 2.5-hour layover turns into a mad dash, stealing a taxi out of the queue and driving suicidally across the city to barely make the connection.

Aerolineas Argentinas emailed me a $26 credit for a future flight for the inconvenience ... not surprisingly, I did not take them up on the offer.
