It is quite interesting to see two skyteam members fighting each other for supremacy on the MEX-IAH route instead of cooperating under a codeshare. Hope they finally solved their problems and we can see a codeshare in the near future...

I remember having flown on AeroMexico flight AM 683 once on X'mas day in 2004. It was fresh beginning for AeroMexico in Chicago because I remember that the check-in staff were from Mexicana and so were the boarding passes (SEE THE PIC BELOW). I remember this very well because I had to fight with the MX check-in agent to convince her that, YES, you can earn AF miles with AeroMexico. She kept telling me no, no, no. Who did she think she was talking to?
Strangely enough, that flight was scrapped after that winter, I'm almost 100% sure. I remember searching for the same flight right after Winter 2004 and AM no longer had its own equipment flying into Chicago. When I checked on AM routemap and timetable in Spring 2005, I also saw that Chicago was no longer serviced by AM. HOW STRANGE WAS THAT?
My guess is that it was a temporary thing either to test the market or to help Mexicana out with the busy holiday season--Chicagoans' freezing ass needed serious thawing in sunny Mexico that winter. AFTER all, at the time, AM and MX were one united entity under CINTRA.
At any height, Bravo AeroMexico. Great to see AeroMexico finally taking stable root at ORD. I'm equally glad to hear that GDL-ORD-GDL is now bridged by AeroMexico. Too bad I no longer live in GDL 'cause I would have been a regular on that GDL-ORD-GDL route.
It seems like flight AM 683 MEX-ORD-MEX has been reinstated (don't know since when...anybody?). In fact, as we speak (31 October 2006, at 6:57PM Paris time), flight AM 683 is right above Monterrey and will soon land at MEX.

After flying 2x daily flights MEX-ORD, AM pulled out because of Cintra's policies; IIRC, some monthly flights were operated in order to preserve authority in the route. Now, that MX has been sold, AM's expansion in Chicago continues; in the next couple of months, up to 21x weekly flights will be operated to ORD:
