If everything goes well and according to the plan, tomorrow, finally, 6A will be getting it's 1st of 05 B737-300s ex. Us Air. At the same time, a new livery is on its way.
Additional to that, by February 2007, the 1st of 25 EMB145s ex. COEX will start to get here. High changes of MIA seeing it soon back now with these B733s additions and ORD is still uncertain. But sure we might be able to see other new cities specially on the north and pacific mexican coast. About time!!! Source: DGAC.

Thank God...The 737-200 that services LAS is loud as hell...That and the Champion 727s...I can always tell when they are taking off because I can hear them at my house (I live about 6 long blocks away from the 25s).

SurferX...Give me a break! If you do not like a/c noise, then why are you living 6 blocks away from the nations 5th busiest airport (9th in the world)? These are last of old generation airliners at LAS and we do not need to be chasing them away. Sometimes I will just never understand how people on this forum are aviation enthusiasts, yet complain about jet noise.
Quoting MEA-707 (Reply 9): Anyone here more details about the last 727s of Aviacsa. Routes, dates and fate of the final aircraft? I guessed late april 2006?
Two weeks ago I was in TIJ waiting for my Y4 flight back to TLC and saw a 6A B722W landing... They should still have one or two for the non-stop MEX-TIJ-MEX, but the B722's should leave the fleet when the B733's arrive.

MEA-707 I think the 727 days maybe numbered...I do recall a very clear incident last year at LAS. One of their 727's was taking off and blew some tires and proceeded on its journey. Sadly, it was the last 6A 727 service we ever saw again. I believe they are still in service, but I do not see them flying into the U.S anymore, but I could be wrong.
