The Mexico City flight does not go to Cancùn, they are separate.
I believe the Mexico City flighs with B747-400s started around 1995 from Heathrow and were transferred to Gatwick a couple of years later along with the other South American routes. The flight is flown on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
As JMC777 said the Canun flights are by 777, in a JM layout on Mondays and Fridays.

Actually BA's London-Mexico City flight leaves from Heathrow, not Gatwick. It is flown on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a 747-400. The Cancun flight is a 777 on Mondays and Fridays leaving from Gatwick.
Cancun is one of Mexico's best designed airports. The international terminal has 9 jetway gates and is very spacious and comfortable. A very enjoyable airport to fly in. By the way, a great approach to both runways (12 and 30).
