Well, folks, the One and Only, Genuine, Original MEX avioncitos meeting is definitely scheduled for Saturday, October 16th, 10:00 A.M. at the Wings restaurant inside Aeromar's terminal 2. I would assume that the following people are confirmed so far to be there (if someone's changed their mind and is not going, please let us know):

Jajajajajaja José Be careful of who are you selling your body to!! Just run if you find a "Chimoltrufia" jajajajajajaja.
About the Hobbyshop, I also spent more than I had to, but I really like watching those aircraft on my desk. I've found a couple of small stores in Madrid where you can buy those aircraft...at the same prices as in Amsterdam.

Well, here's a very short summary of yesterday's avioncitos meet:
The following folks attended:
Britmex (who did NOT show up in a limo with three beautiful blondes, BTW)
and someone else whose name I didn't get (sorry!). He says he reads the forums but does not post (if you're reading this this, please e-mail me, my e-mail is in my profile).
Now, of those who confirmed two didn't show up:
Anthsaun and MX330 (salud, compadre!)
Some of us took an avioncito, but Adriaticus' three-holer was definitely the biggest of them all (no wonder he's the one who started the ball rolling about everyone taking one of our avioncitos).
Some of the topics that were discussed were the construction of the new terminal at MEX, 6A getting 733's, MX and their second 767, AM going for the 73G in part due to the 738's weight restrictions at MEX, new airlines in Mexico, AM's sad experience in ORD, what a boring place Basel is, gossip about some of our fellow a.netter's , and many other things.
The next one will be in about a couple of months, and we really look forward to having all those who couldn't make it (or were too hung over to make it).

Very good Jose, it seems you all had a good time.
But what kind of "avioncitos" were present then (i.e. airline, model)? can you tell us?
Did you discuss over new airlines that may start to fly to MEX? Discussed here in the forum last week is that Aerolineas Argentinas plans to start MEX again with the second A310 (via Lima or direct with a stop in Acapulco).
