Oooops, scratch that. . . that would be just ex-PP-VRA doing mx over there, at least for now.

Any ways, any news from the proposed flight?

It is not certain whether Mexicana will launch their proposed flights to Beijing and Shanghai. However, LAN Cargo has intention of expanding its service to China via Mexico through its Mexican subsidiary MAS Air. The plan is to fly cargo from South America to Mexico City, where it will connect with a MAS Air 767 that will fly MEX-TIJ-China, on a weekly basis. I think this is the most concrete plan as of yet, unless Air China all of sudden announces that they'll fly to Mexico City, in order to increase ties between the two countries as is the current scenario with Brazil.

That's interesting. They could fly their own planes to Brazil or just get ABSA (partially owned by LAN Cargo) to fly up to MEX or TIJ.

What kind of planes does MAS Air fly, B767Fs too?

HI!

Yes, MAS Air flies 767F´s leased from its parent company, LAN.

That is correct. ABSA doesn't fly yet to Mexico, but MAS Air flies to Viracopos and Manaus in Brazil, as well as Bogota and Caracas, while LAN flies to Santiago. The plan is to use MAS Air's cargo hub in MEX and connect their flights to Viracopos, Manaus, and Santiago with the flight to China. LAN being a company that gets a good percentage of its profits from its Cargo divisions, sees that there is growth demand of cargo between Latin American and Asia, especially between China and Brazil. Hence the reason why they want to tap into the market.

Could very well be Juventus. You as pilot would know better than I about such matters. But it is certain that LAN's intentions are to fly from Mexico to Asia beating Mexicana's proposed service.
