Just a heads up to any local spotters that AM's first flight of the season to YEG operates on July 11.The flight will operate using a 757-200 that arrives at 1100am local and departs at 1215pm local.Its the first of 10 flights from MEX nonstop for the mexican tourists coming to YEG.The flights will be mixed with 757s and 73G equiptment.AM has said it will experiment with the market to see if a sked run is viable to YEG.Lets hope so!!!

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 1): No offense, but why are Mexican tourists coming to Edmonton. The mall?
Let go shopping!
My guess is that the flights are part of organized tour packages to the Canadian Rockies and the beautiful National Parks in that region.
My question is why YEG and not YYC......wouldnt Calgary be a stronger destination if, by some chance, these charter flights would evolve into a scheduled service. Could the "oil connection" help support a scheduled flight?
