Strange Visitors At MEX

I noticed this morning that there was an A Volar 737 (sorry, don't know the series) parked next to a JR DC-9 on the westernmost end of the airport, between T1 and T2 just feet away from the Circuito Interior (and quite close to the McDonald's pedestrian bridge).

I also saw an EOS 757 at the MX hangar.

Does anybody know why we had such unusual guests at MEX? I would not be surprised to learn that the EOS bird was there for maintenance, paint or whatever. But I am intrigued by the A Volar 37... was this a charter flight?


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

The EOS plane was possibly N762 or N763MX, after being painted, got a picture in MX´s paint hangar, hope to upload it soon.

The Avolar plane was possible a charter flight, not so sure, or will go to MX´s base for maintenane, MX gives some services to Avolar.

Saludso

Indeed, only MX seeking for 2 second hand 767´s, AM getting rid of one of their 777´s (possible not total loss) and some new destinations by both airlines, everything looks quite fine.

What? Why? When?

Seriously? It will be replaced by another 777 I'd imagine, no?

A Volar 737

I was away a week from MEX, who knows why it is here but it is XA-UHY which belongs to Global Air and was on lease to Avolar.

N763MX, last MX B757 in service. Now going to its new operator. Last B757 in Mexico for MX.

Thanks a lot Richard, N763 was completely stripped from paint the last time I saw her in MEX, got a pic here on a.net, N762 was fully white.
