Hey everybody,

This post is based in rumours I've been hearing from a friend that is pilot for MX from some time now... I heard that MX is going to have an image change this december when they renovate their ground station in MEX in T1. Can somebody please elaborate on this? Is it true or is it only a rumour?

I really think MX is now taking some important steps, I can't wait to see their new 762's. On that note, does someone have any cabin pictures of XA-MXC and/or MXE??
I also heard that MX can probably get some used M11's but I guess that's just nonsense...

Thanks

KL-AM

Well it's possible - they are joining oneworld after all, so perhaps they are overhauling their image before they join the best quality alliance of them all?

Thanks for the heads up!



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

The MD11 is a beatifull machine, probably my favorite heavy, but I hope MX does not get those things. With the price of fuel, the MDs wouldn't be the best option. Why would they need MD 11s to begin with??? the 767s and/or A330s can reach Europe from MEX's high altitude airport........ Unless they want to go to Asia with a stop somewhere? hum.....

It would be nice to see Mexicana with a nice new livery. Yes the current one is only three years old, but an over all change would be quite nice. I do hope they keep their tail logo ( I would appreciate it if our Mexican friends or people who know Mexicana quite well ) share with us what exactly that design is.

That 3-year old livery wasn't a good one from the beginning and it was not even a successor to the previous Mexicana livery... they realize it now, I hope.

 checkmark  A very amateur effort that last one was, I knew that wouldn't last. The logo on the engine was cool, but the white fuselage with the Halloween?? tail looks like an incomplete costume.

The first '90s livery was gorgeous, despite a lot of white:

Well I don't think the current Mexicana livery is all that bad, and I wouldn't quite call it amateur. I agree, its not very inspiring, but I think it looks a whole lot better than the previous livery, those different colours on the tail look horrendous!

Now that Amsterdam Airlines livery... THAT is amateur.

The current MX livery looks like that of a charter airline that does a lot of wet-lease operations and is operating for MX. They could easily refresh it without major alterations or downtime (Everything they could do with stickers.). First off, keep the colors as they are. Relocate the Mexicana titles (with a cleaned up font) to above the windows and include a small version of the logo on one end of the titles, and the Mexican flag on the other. Resized the Mexicana logo on the tail so that it fits on the tail, fill in the colors on it and perhaps have some sort of traditional pattern as the background on the tail and on the engine nacelles. On the engine nacelles, put the website address or the MX logo, not both of them (Although perhaps have the MX logo slightly faded on the nacelles and have the website address superimposed over the logo.).

It looks real sharp! Personally, I'd like to see Mexicana go back to the scheme they used on their DeHavilland Comet 4Cs

Question: Are the 762s they're getting brand new machines or from another airline?

I feel that the latest livery of Mexicana to be very poor especially when compared with the latest Aero Mexico livery. That is sweet! I live here in the mexican capitol of Phoenix AZ, where people are so proud to be Mexican. I find it strange that a nation so proud of itself has two major airlines that do not even carry the colors of the Mexican flag. Using the colors of the flag will surely make a great scheme.

They are coming from LOT: SP-LOA and SP-LOB.

Both of them have engine comonality with XA-MXC and XA-MXE, the current 767-300 flying with MX.

It looks sharperr than the current scheme that's for sure, good job!

I prefer strong colors in latin airlines (like in the 70s 80s and 90s). One reason why I also cannot stand the new Aeromexico... it couldn't have been any worse! That one probably won't last too long either.

Aeromexico should have tried to incorporate the Mexican colors, another amateur effort.

Sorry you feel like that towards my livery, however aside from the above gold comment if I hear some of your suggestions Ill incorporate that into a new Mexicana design.

I owe you an apology, what I wrote was not cool at all, I went too far. I apologize

Your desing is fine, but too much color and lines for my taste.

I do like the current livery, but it is still missing something that says Mexicana is a Mexican carrier (appart from the name of course). Yet remember, this are all rumours, and I'm waiting for somebody to confirm them.

As for the colors, I do not think they are going back to green, they changed their uniforms some time ago, the new uniform was this one you can see in uniformfreak.com (I'm not sure if I can post these images here if I quote where I got them from) http://www.uniformfreak.com/index2a.html, anyways, you can go into the Mexicana's uniforms and check the 2006-2007 uniform, you can see it here:
http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=sWM5hyyw-ss.
This uniforms lasted about one year, and then they changed the green accents into light blue, but the uniform is exactly the same.
Also the cabins were changed into blue and light blue from blue and green.
I would really love to see something that looks classy.

Cheers!

That's a Boeing designed livery and probably with lots of discounts on the AM 787 order which was the reason for the color change at AM. The metal chrome livery of the old AM livery can't be applied to the all-composite 787. I wonder how much compensation AA will get from Boeing once they order the 787 and have to give up their silver livery they have now.

Service rumors include:

MEX-LHR
MEX-MAD
MEX-XXX-NRT

All of the above mentioned routes, I believe, can be flown with the 787/A350. However in a shorter timespan I can see MX operating MEX-MAD-LHR, or MEX-MAD and MAD-LHR with the A330-200.

I didn't know Boeing had designed it

Bad job Boeing! bad!! awful!!! Now go sit in the corner ----> and don't design a livery like that ever again

Anyways, yeah it's supposedly because of the "plastic 787" but did the scheme really had to be this generic/awful? No excuse  no   yes 

PS: AA can just paint their 787s in metallic gray like Northwest does, and problem solved. Even back when AA had the A300s in gray they looked great to me.
