Quoting NAVEGA (Reply 1): 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.
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.
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?

Quoting AM744 (Reply 8): 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.
