Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez has taken time between Botox injections to indulge in more name-calling.
No longer satisfied to refer to Argentina’s creditors as vulture funds, she now has vulture airlines:
Cristina tilda de ‘buitres con turbinas’ a American Airlines Cristina dubs American Airlines ‘vultures with turbines’
American Airlines will not sell tickets in Argentina more than 90 days in advance. Cristina says this is an “attack against the country to cause uncertainty” about the currency.
Considering how Argentina joins the Venezuela School of Economics by passing laws
that cap consumer prices of goods, set profit margins for private businesses and levy fines on companies found to be making “artificial or unjustified” profits
AA is worrying about getting paid. Over in Venezuela, the government is withholding US$3.6 billion in airline ticket revenue.
