According to the linked articles (in Spanish) AM will stop flying to MGA in February.

http://noticias.aol.com.mx/articulos...a-aeromexico/n20081214124309990018

"... a source of the company that manages Managua airport told EFE that the Mexican airline will suspend its flights in February"

"... Aeromexico's Commercial Manager for Nicaragua, Jorge Sanchez said that an official statement would be released in Mexico the following day (Dec 15) "

As of today I don't see any official release from Aeromexico itself.

Current timetable shows MGA at 3x and SAP at 6x.

No suprise here. I am glad to see Aeromexico trimming back and taking solid and good
management decisions to secure their future.

Must have new directors or something.

I wish them luck.

Yes, no surprise there. Good decision, altough I would've liked the service to have succeded, I think everybody knew it was doom to fail even before it begun

 checkmark  Definitely must be some new person or committee making route decisions anyway; lots of "new" stuff popping up and lackluster performers -- I assume -- being shown the exit! The big question mark to me will be answered when we see how many of the "new" routes actually start, and how long they last... Then I'll know if it's time to believe.  Wink

Here's hoping for a new era at the executive offices at AM!

This seems to be a lesson from which hopefuly Aeromexico will learn. "Flying the Mexican flag to more places than any other" doesn't seem to be the way to make profits or a reasonable way to manage an airline - or any other business fo the same matter. If AM ever starts flying MEX-DEN, I am positive that history will repeat itself in a market that not even United has been able to work consistently. I agree with the previous posts that it is a wise move to close markets that are not working as MGA; the problem is that these "adventures" are costly for the airline and now AM pursues the same strategy as pure retaliation against MX for opening MAD and GRU. Airlines managed with the guts, can it work?

You hit the nail right on. This is a stupid war, that does either airline any good.

I am surprised at Aeromexicos retaliation statergies against Mexicana. Thought they had a bit more business smarts.

Regardless, hope they do well.

Indeed. As a matter of fact I would have thought that MGA had a much better perspective than DEN and that has to say something.

It is a pity.

Anyway, if SAP is 6x weekly, I suppose it is doing well. Is that correct?



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

... said statement hasn't been released as of today. Isn't it a bit strange that they cancel a route in which they hold a monopoly and that was upgraded to 3x as recently as October?

I would think so. Can anybody explain the difference between this seemingly similar markets?

This is nothing but an uneducated guess. I think taking the MEX-SAP service are mostly Mexican tourists going to Roatan and to ecotourism places, plus a number Honduran travelers needing to go to Mexico City, other cities in Mexico and perhaps the U.S. or Europe. On the other hand, I would think the MEX-MGA mostly caters to Nicaraguan travelers needing to go to Mexico City, other cities in Mexico and perhaps the U.S. or Europe, so the size of the market is significantly lower.



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