I am under the impression that both DL and CO offer their domestic First Class service to all Mexican destinations, e.g.: DL's red-eye LAX-GDL is scheduled in a 738, which I don't believe is configured as BusinessElite, but rather as First... and CO's IAH-MEX service on the 73x to is also domestic First instead of BusinessFirst...
Is this correct? Also, is the on board service, in consequence, closer to the domestic standards than to the international ones?
I appreciate any learned comments on this.

Quoting DeltAirlines (Thread starter): but DL treats Mexico as domestic first class. Same service applies as domestic flights with the exception of complimentary headphones in Y.
Actually, I think it depends on which Mexico flights. The resort destinations flights are like domestics but I believe a few business-slanted routes like JFK-MEX gets proper service up front including meal choices, silverware/glasses, etc.

DL's BusinessElite and CO's BusinessFirst are on widebodies and 757s only. All other narrow body aircraft are regular First class configured (their respective websites and sites like seatguru.com will help you further).
As for service, CO has food service that is a tad diffferent than US domestic. Try going to DL's or CO's wensites for more info about service there, too.
I fly internationally (Europe, Asia, S. America (BusinessFirst routes)) and know extensively what we serve there.

For DL it is sold as Business, but not BusinessElite of course due to equipment. It feels more like domestic first, but there usually is a choice of two entrees to go with common salad, bread, and dessert. One of the entrees usually is omit the meat to make it vegetarian. Breakfasts are choice as well. For the short-haul Latin American routes, they give printed menus up front as well. This treatment is for routes including but not limited to Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Peru, Ecuador, El Salvador. The clearly beach routes get nothing - like Cancun.
