Not too much actually - I mean several new destinations will be opened up for one-stops to Latin America via Houston and Atlanta; but its still relatively the same as United and Northwest had minimal south of the border presence compared to Continental and Delta.

Quoting Eastern023 (Thread starter): What does this mean for routes to this continent. Also is AA too concern about this?. I would like to hear your comments about UA using CO to have exposure to this area of the world? Please comments.
It changes nothing.
NW is non-existent in Latin America outside of Mexico, and their Mexican presence is very weak. Their only non-Mexico route to the region, MSP-LIR, was suspended this year.
United only has 25 weekly flights to the region outside of Mexico (14x GRU, 7x GIG, 7x EZE, 1x LIR), and their Mexican presence is also weak as for years they relied on Mexicana.
