When do you think the official SkyTeam announcement will be made?

I believe that it is already official that CO and NW will join SkyTeam. There was a meeting of the CEO's of the SkyTeam member airlines in Mexico last month and they agreed to admit CO and NW. One could see this coming because DL has been getting closer to CO and NW in the past year and KLM (the European partner of CO and NW) was recently acquired by AF, so no surprises here.

I do believe this is great news for AM. It still trails MX in terms of market share of passengers transported between the U.S. and Mexico, so this will certainly help it become more competitive. I was just thinking that other than CO and AM, no other major airline flies the MX), Mexico">MEX-IAH route so I don't know if this is actually good for us consumers, since they can raise prices in the absence of competition. Same with the NY market. DL and AM are the main (only?) airlines that fly MX), Mexico">MEX-JFK and CO has the most flights from MX), Mexico">MEX to EWR (MX does not even fly daily), so...



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I'll admit it; I'm confused.

CO is already the single largest U.S. carrier to Mexico. They've got all the service there they need. Why codeshare with AM? There's plenty of upside for AM; access to CO's domestic and international markets out of IAH and EWR...but where's the benefit for CO?

The only potential is if CO's planners have found the Mexican marketplace is lacking Mexico - U.S./international flowthrough AND they're unwilling to fly CO alone but have no problem if the perception is that it's really AM they're supporting.

Its all part of the skyteam thing. CO can book people outside of their hubs on a nonstop to Mexico, and it opens up even more destinations in Mexico so it helps CO as well.

When CO joins SkyTeam and introduces SkyTeam awards, OnePass miles will actually have some value once again.......

"The airline's corporate headquarters are in Mexico City and its U.S. operations are based in Houston. "

Sidenote: I didn't know that.

Isn't CO adding even more Mexican cities over the next few months-with ERJs out of IAH? Seems the IAH int'l traffic will grow even more, I hope the new customs facility is done soon. I always have good luck and fast service at IAH customs, and hope that continues- even with more pax.

So who has a big list of what FF programs 'should' be linked by 2004? Who is going to be in what alliance?

Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns,
