I could've sworn there were rumors of them coming here sometime soon and I did search, but came up with nothing. What happened with that rumor? I would not be suprised to see them come here and those chrome 73Gs would look oh so nice by the McNamara terminal me thinks.

The Auto-Industry would be reason. But my guess is due to the downturn in the auto industry Aeromexico might have decided to hold off. I know DCX has many plants in Mexico, but I'm not sure of the others.

I thought Mexicana was starting service there. A relative who works for them told me they are in the plans for opening in 2007.

Anyone can confirm this???

There are rumors of both Mexican major-airlines flying to a handfull of US cities, they even have permission on some of the routes already, but who knows....My opinion, I don't see DTW happening.

There's no need of a Mexican comunity in Detroit in order to have a flight to DTW, I mean, you people from United States can always have the delight of flying Aeromexico!

I think NW's nonstop DTW-MEX-DTW is more than enough to satisfy the traffic between both cities.

By the way: KLAM, WELCOME to A.net!!! Man, I am also Mexican born, live in Madrid, Dutch lover (mexicaanse Nederlandstalig) and aviation freak... ongelooflijk!!!

Saludos,
Victor.

I was also going to say that NW already has DTW-MEX service. What aircraft do they use on that route? It seems like it would be enough.


It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

It's an A319. I think it's daily.

I took it once about 4 years ago, it was an Airbus 319 or 320, completely full, first class was full with business people.

Most of the automakers plants are in northern Mexico. AM service to MEX would require a serious backtrack. COEX can connect to all those northern Mexico areas via IAH, and its all SkyTeam for WorldPerks members.

The major mfg. operations are in MTY and Saltillo, not MEX. NW cleans up on the DTW-MEX flight which is full of a lot of automotive related traffic, but these companies would not fly Aeromexico as they all have corporate contracts with NW anyways.

Everyone flies through IAH on CO and collects their Worldperks miles thanks to the Skyteam alliance. I swear the IAH-MTY flights are about half full of people connecting to/from DTW.

It still amazes me that NW / Pinnacle wasn't able to make a profit on MEM-MTY when they flew the route in 2001.
