I'd like to see her grace IAH. The normal livery is quite boring although not awful.
Who would have ever thought that 6A would have the same amount of mainline service into IAH as AeroMexico. I wonder if they (6A) would ever expand service from IAH? Cancun and Guadalajara seem likely candidates.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! AVIACSA They really deserve to break the 15 year mark, they are really hard working, have excellent service on-board, and always striving to provide the best for their passengers and their employees alike. Keep the smile AVIACSA.

Congrats to Aviacsa!!! I don't know much about this airline, but the anniversary livery is nice and colourful. What I also like about Aviacsa's livery is the smiley on their aircraft (on the nose). It reminds me of the good old '80's when PSA was also flying their 'smiley' aircraft. I saw PSA the first time in 1984 when I went to SFO. I remember seeing their MD80 (which was new at the time) and it was also my first time to see the BAe-146 (also with a smile on the nose). I also liked AirCal with their rainbow colourscheme on their MD80 and 737s. Western Airlines was also an airline I saw for the time back than which I also liked seeing (72S/73S). Would be nice if these three airlines still excisted, together with Pan Am, TWA (old colours) and Eastern Airlines
By the way, does anyone know if Aviacsa is planning on replacing their current fleet with new aircraft any time soon? Which aircraft would best suite Aviacsa looking at their route network/organization/financial status?
Feliz cumpleaños Aviacsa. Les deseo mucho exito!!!

Very cool, it's definitely great to see Aviacsa did something artsy, unlike some others who simply add a small sticker or some like Avianca whose 85th years scheme on their 763 is nothing to celebrate about.

Unfortunately bilateral agreements along with a severe lack of available aircraft prevents Aviacsa from expanding in the US-Mexico market. Nevertheless it is considered in the medium term to return to DFW and increase existing frequencies to MIA (AFAIK) and opening NYC.

As a matter of fact it is a real hot topic nowadays. The ghost of fleet renewal have floated through the company aisles in many times; first with more 732s, then 733s, then a combo of 733-735s and even with the not-so-crazy idea of 757s, but it is clear that -with the exception of the last two years additions-, nothing was brought to reality. Now it seems to be different, as the amazing increase in fuel prices have made the board reunite and decide about the 727 substitute and the model in which the whole route expansion will rely on.
A week ago we carried our CEO in one of our MTY-MEX flights and when he went greet us to the cockpit, he literally said "you guys better enjoy your toy, as it won't be around for much longer". We inquired the reason and he exposed the problem of fuel prices. He mentioned also that the decision for the renewal was going to be taken in these days and that at least we could expect the 727 to be gone in as soon as 4 months.
Crew management hasn't stopped promoting upgrades from one aircraft to the other, just as they have not balked giving training for what will be -most likely- the next addition, second-generation 737s. (Although there is the slight possibility of getting 8 732s as the proper combination of price, commonality and availability on newer aircraft is not adequate. We believe that sooner or later, both Aviacsa and the seller will give up and the deal will be finally landed).
Seems that the enthusiasm is again around... hope this time they truly fulfill our expectations.

quote=MGA,reply=15]Of the subject a bit, but i was reading a paper today in which aviacsa had advertized Mothers Fly free... Is this possible? Everywoman flying free? Anybody got some info?[/quote]
Well., not exactly every woman though; the deal is offered to any woman who is a Mother (this related to our Mexican -and bet also Latin American- tradition of celebrating motherhood in May.
Certain conditions apply; the trip should be booked in advanced, should be accompanied with another full fare paying customer, certain travel dates must be set, etc; but after all a heck of a good deal.
