Or not continue on friday, worst case scenario. But he cant get off mid-flight
There's more than enough leeway on option 3 to not have Shabbos issues.
With either option, weather in NYC will disrupt getting home for Shabbos.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Right before the holidays.

He can always fall back on EZE-IAH/PTY etc.
Assuming there's space after a cancellation...

Not if the weather kicks in later in the day.

I've seen him fit into tighter spaces. Actually, not sure fit is the right word...

Case in point:

(see: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=65070.msg1592118#msg1592118 for description)

Quote
Either way, I say option 1 as well considering that it's a (i) busy Friday (ii) during the winter (iii) in NYC and if anything goes (stays?) south he'd be away from his family for the 3'rd Shabbos.

It's a tough call. If it were possible, I'd book both, and see how weather is that day. If all seems OK I'd probably go with option 3. Getting home grumpy from a long uncomfortable flight might not be the best kind of Shabbos for the family.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That's a fallback option? Get on a flight there and stay shabbos?

Not sure what you're asking, but yeah you can fly EZE-PTY-NYC and get to NYC before Shabbos.

Earliest we can leave EZE is 9pm. Only EZE-USA flights will arrive on time.
