I know there are quite a few Mexican spotters on here and want to pose a question to them. On Friday I am taking the new Mexicana flight 861 from JFK-MEX. The flight makes a brief, 45 minute, stop in Cancun. I have heard conflicting accounts of how immigration/customs works with these flights. Since the ground time is a mere 45 mintues, do passengers continuing on to MEX stay on the plane in CUN while the CUN-MEX pax board? Or, do we all have to get off the plane and go through immigration/customs in CUN?

Obviously, MX does this flight every day, and there are plenty of people who take the flight JFK-MEX, but I'd just like to know the procedure, if anyone knows.

No, you go through immigration in Cancún and you will deplane at MEX as a domestic passenger. At least, that is the way it has always been in my personal experience in similar flights.

Best Regards,

Go to the AICM web site and check the arrival status of MX 861. It appears passengers off the flight can be met at Door E2. If I recall correctly E2 is the international arrivals area of T1, whereas "A" would be for domestic flights, yes?

Well I have done PDX-MEX with a 45 min stop in GDL to go through immigration. I have done this twice and I always think that 45 minutes is surely not enough and always feel that the plane will leave without me. It has not happened. I think they don't leave until all pax going through to MEX have crossed immigration. There are people that get on in GDL but when you arrive in MEX you do so as a domestic flight. It sounds like they do the same in this particular JFK-(CUN)-MEX flight.

Hope this helps and enjoy MX, they are great! A cousin of mine is about to follow my parents' footsteps and will begin training and assesment with MX soon to begin working as cabin crew (in case anyone cares...).
