According to AeroMexico's Regional Manager he states that with the addition of the new B737s into their fleet AeroMexico will increase their total seat capacity in a 28% more.....

More over, more good news! He also says that AeroMexico has 38 options for 2005 but he didn't specify the aircraft type/s....

My bet is that AM will get 30 B737-800s for the replacement of 28 MD80s (09 MD82s, 09 MD83s and 10 MD 88s). And 8 B737-900s for the replacement of 8 B757-200s.

PS. MX is also receiving two new additional A319s next November... I heard some rumors that one of the 319s might have the new Star Alliance c/s.... and..... in the other hand probably we will have a surprise from the airline...... (a new.... cor.... image..... but don't trust me... they are still in talks and waiting for an aproval) finally, rego's will be XA-CMA (Compañía Mexicana de Aviación) and XA-MXA (Mexicana)... !!!

There is no official word from the Boeing in their website
or in their news letter of any additional orders from Aeromexico than what they had previously ordered.

However SAS has announced a lease to Mexicana for 1 or 2 B767,s which they plan on operating nonstop to Buenos Aires sometime in December.

If SK is leasing 2 B767's to MX, they have to be B763's... interesting that MX wants to start non-stop flights to EZE with the B763's. There is a very high demand for flights to Argentina during the summer season, but I will like to know what MX will do during the South America winter season??? Hope they start a Mex-FRA or a Mex-LHR someday, they could well benefit from connections with Star Alliance partners, but I'm not sure that MX will test the European market for the moment. Hope I'm wrong!!!

hello all:

Yes, although it is not officially Aeromexico, the intention letters are held by lessors (ILFC, and Polar) and at any time would mean more 737`s to AM. Currently there are no plans to replace the MD-80`s save for the oldest ones (all who have old style tailcone) which were built in 1981-82 and have finally ended its service life. The MD-88 are still new generation aircraft and its interiors are in really good shape, the same can be said of the newest MD 82 and 83`s which are being equipped with 717 style lockers and toilets. Those aircraft may remain up to 2010 or more. The long term plan is to replace all MD`s with 737 series and that includes 800 and 900 series. Meanwhile, a likely replacement for the 767-200 is sought and that could be the 777. However, economy will surely direct any decision made.

Regarding MX routes to Europe, for the moment they are only plans since due to international treaties Aeromexico has the only rights for scheduled transatlantic services. We have been doing those flights since Constellation and Guest Aerovias DC-6 vintage. Aeromexico crews had been certified in Cat III operations, which are a must for flying into Heathrow or any other British airport. I don`t know so far if Mexicana`s crews are accordingly trained. However 767`s for EZE flights is very likely and lets hope it`s soon now that Argentina is a real bargain for tourism.

Whoa, it's incredible to see AeroMexico going for an "All Boeing Fleet", and to see Mexicana go for an "All Airbus Fleet." Do these two major carriers want to bring Boeing and Airbus into a "rodeo" within Mexico? That is what it looks like. HEHEHE

Fly safe,

Hi guys,

Im really happy and sad for MX, because i just drove back from our ASPA, union, and i talked to one of our representatives, and i asked him how was your day, and he replied BAD. MX directives want to salsh another 57 pilots!,
So I do have to saythat this 767 again is quite confusing for all of us! I really hope this time the news is to stay and notto fly away like last time! I mean there where people that said that they had already seen the plane at MX hangar, come on!

Hope this is the one!

Thanks and seeya!

Great news ! Ghost... you also did my day !

Britmex: I'm glad you did reference to Guest Aerovías Mexico and their Lockheed Constellation. Great to know there are still a few out there who knows some history. What a great honor would be working for AM !

Javo: Man ! What can I say???. I just don't see an end to this. Another 57 pilots in the street? That's 120+57, almost 180 just from Mexicana. +40 from A. Intenacionales + 40 from Allegro. Where the f... are we going to end up ???? Certainly Aviacsa is hiring but very slowly and certainly will never be able to hire at the same pace as the others are firing 'em. Gosh !!! My very personal insights in http://www.airliners.net/discussions/tech_ops/read.main/71209/

As some has pointed out.... let's just hope this is THE one time we'll see our airlines going up up and beyond...

Wow, this is great news. Great to hear that AM has 38 options with boeing. Would be nice to see AM with some fresh metal in the air.

OOh I do hope Mexicana does get those 767s. Its good to hear tha they are starting EZE route again. Hopefully one day they will fly into Europe.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Is it true that MX will receive some A318's?

Orders as Britmex said, are via lessor companies.... so new AM orders definetly will be via ILFC or any other lessor. Glad to know SAS already anounced the lease of definetly 2 767s for MX. Hope to see the MEXEZE route back soon!!!


Thanks for the link, the only think I don't like is that they asure to have the newest fleet in the world... while I think there are some others with newer fleets... a fex examples.. JetBlue, Frontier, Ryanair and probably a lot more ailines....


Yeap, it's true MX will place an order for the A318s.
