Hi everyone,

I was at LAX today and stumbled on the LAX Flight Attendant schedules for April and it just happened to be open to this odd-ball flight. On 31Apr04 scheduling has a trip on a 752 LAX-ACA and back. At first I didn't recognize the city code ACA and after I found out that it was Cancun I started to get excited! This trip is only operating one day so it's really peculiar.

It couldn't be a charter flight because those aren't printed (I'm like 98% sure on this). Are we possibly doing a test run for this route? Possibly TED someday doing the LAX-ACA run? Are we going to give AS a little run for their money?

Any details out there on this?

Huh?

31st April.........sorry but April only had 30 days the last time I looked.

ACA is the airport code for Acapulco.......not Cancun.

Is this the first April fools joke of the season?

FA4UA:

UAL used to serve LAX/ACA - Acapulco not Cancun - some years ago as a seasonal service only.

They did quite well in the winter, but loads in to/out of ACA are terrible in the summer. Plus, in those days, Delta used to have year round service, so the locals prefered them. UAL dropped the service.

I'd be slightly surprised to see them start it again, given Alaska's hold on that market, but hey, anything's possible.

Then again, as Dutchjey notes, there are only 30 days in April.

cheers

thanks for the two corrections! Duh, silly me!

That's what 4 hrs of sleep and two legs of flying domestic will do to you!

They've been in the SFO bid packages with an A320 for a long time now.
