Excellent news for SEA! We'll see how AeroMexico does on the route - I've been a little doubtful of how flights from SEA-Mexico (other than the resorts, of course) would do. Now I'll get my chance to see.
It certainly has been a great year for SEA (and PDX for that matter!). And I should point out that AM is the second new SkyTeam carrier in SEA this year (AF being the other, of course).

Quoting Dolphinflyer (Reply 9): When is AM announcing flights/times for MEX-MSP, v.v.? They applied for DOT rights to both MSP and SEA in the same filing a couple of months ago. Any insight?
There's a separate thread dedicated to MSP-MEX. The consensus seems to be that AM is unlikely to fly this route any time soon. Remember, AM was authorized to serve SCK and DTW well before they were authorized to serve MSP, and AM hasn't started service to either city yet.
They have had mixed results with recent destinations. Boston and Austin have performed poorly. San Antonio has done well, and their second attempt at Ft. Lauderdale has been a strong performer. Then they put Toronto, Detroit, and Philadelphia into reservation systems, but didn't start any of them.

Quoting Mason (Reply 19): Great for AM, it was just a matter of time before AS started the route. Can someone give a summary of all the flights/airlines that SEA has gained this year and when service starts? It will be long.

Quoting MD90fan (Reply 5): Hey, those Apple farmers have to get home somehow right?
If so, they would probably want to fly to EAT (WENATCHEE, WA). Check out the Apple Blossom Festival. We don't have too many apple farms on the west side of the Cascades.
Quoting Juventus (Reply 8):
Well SEA is a big city with many Hispanic residents. The flight should do well.
AS seems to do well routing their flights SEA-LAX-MEX, so we'll see! Can't wait to get a picture of that shining 73G over the tunnel (which, btw, has an old pair of wings sitting on top of it now that light up at night.. pretty cool).I might have to take a trip down to Mexico.. haven't been in a few years. Best of luck to them!

I wish AeroMexico the very, very best on this new route. It's so nice to see Mexican carriers expanding in more places of the US. After all, Hipanics one of the largest minorities in the US and are predominant in many cities of the West. I also forsee a good future for AM in SEA as perhaps they might be able to Code-share with NW using SkyTeam to may be tag-on flight numbers to Asia, although NW presence is not the biggest in SEA the still have a mini-hub so that might help AM out on this venture.
When Will MX Fly to Europe??? I guess '09 is the year!!!

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 2): AM 670 MEX 1800-2135 SEA 73G Daily
AM 671 SEA 0830-1540 MEX 73G Daily
I wonder why they don't red-eye it back to MEX. You'd think there would be a market for arriving early in the morning at MEX rather than wasting a day on a plane. I imagine it would also make sense for AM to increase the utilization of that aircraft rather than parking it for half a day in SEA.
25 RoseFlyer: Does anyone think that the AS might retaliate and start service on its own? I hope SEA will work out. SEA can support flights to Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo,
26 Jetboy319: If Alaska starts SEA-MEX, I wouldn't be surprised if AM didn't last long, considering that AS already code-shares with the majority of SkyTeam members
27 Jrlander: I think the profitability of the route will have a lot more to do with Microsoft, Boeing and the related companies who are here in Seattle. Both comp
28 Ghost77: About time!! A MEX-SEA was needed, at least a 4X, lets see how AM does with a 7X. I think this new route is here to stay. Lets see if MX doesn't get i
29 Rojo: I hope AM got to sign a deal with Microsoft and Boeing before planning the route. MX did its homework before starting PDX, they got a very big contra
30 UAL757: Yes, finally! SEA is getting a lot of new service this is awesome! I'm gonna try AM, always wanted to! Yes...haha!
31 EddieDude: No idea. I had not heard anything. I am sure our friend logan from MX at MTY will know something. What I can tell you is that MX tried to fly to YVR
