For us, people who live in Monterrey, losing Aerolineas Internacionales was a blow, because through them we had a nice, cheap way to go to Acapulco, and it was the only airline with a decent departure hour to Tijuana and Culiacan. I just hope they come back with more modern aircraft, as Ghost said, and it would be nice if it also was with a new management team.

I will like to see their new business plan. I had the opportunity to visit their ticket office in Mexico City (Concepcion Beistegui, Colonia del Valle) and heard some of the managers talking to each other about problems with the reservation system... it was a joke how they ran the airline. I just hope they think twice before coming back and going bankrupt again!! Mexico is not an easy country to run an airline, specially with a government monopoly in the skies...

During this past week I spent some time with a couple of pilots of A. Internacionales. One of them used to (and will) hold a management position in the company. Things are hot now and apparently it won't take a long time until we start seeing them flying again. They have a couple of 727's ready to go (XA-SKC and XA-AAD) and the current Business plan they have considers a couple of 737's (sorry, I didn't ask for the series). Charters among the original routes are considered.
I'll tell you guys more when able to disclose the info.
There are no stupid questions... just stupid people!
