I wonder how that new livery will look on an CRJ.

Anybody if the pilots will be mostly from ALMA, or brand new Mexicana hires??

Pilot´s and FA´s are mainly from ALMA, ground support will be given by MX, only managers and supervisors will be hired in some destinations, also SEAT will be the ground service provider as part of MX.

It is, the comercial name will be Mexicana Link, the "razón social" is Mexicana Inter, inaugural flight will be on march 16 GDL-MTY, already have my "1st row ticket" for the pictures, hope the weather gets good, as today and the entire weekend will be cold, and rainy; monday it´s supossed to be only cloudy, but I´ll try to catch it.

Saludos

correct, "on CRJs and widebodies". It looks all right on A320s and 767s, but the A330 and CRJs take the cake

Question. The article about the new service here ( http://www.mexperience.com/blogs/mexicoinsight/?p=185 ) says a 2+1 seating service like an ERJ. I have never seen a CRJ 200 with 2+1. Is the article correct or a typo?

It sounds like a big confusion as the CRJ200 can barely fit 50 seats with a 2+2 configuration, The article does mention that they will carry 50 passengers.

Dear Smi0006,

yes, you´re correct about Mexicana. I´ll add the fleet types.

Mexicana: A318/319/320, A332, B762/763

Click: F100, soon B717

Link CRJ200

AeroMexico has AeromMexico Connect as their regional subsidiary (called a few years ago as AeroLitoral), they fly ERJ145 and E190.

Also, AeroMexico Travel, as their charter division with MD-87.

Another three large carriers in Mexico are; Aviacsa (B732/733), Volaris (A319-320) and Interjet (A320).


saludos

Aeromar still flies ATRs as a regional feeder for Mexicana, (I think)

Ahhh Gracias for that KikiFerret, I had a quick look on the sight but I was so tired I couldn't find anything. Looking forward to seeing MX in one world and hopefully some more code share with QF down under!

Aeromar is their own airline, and a competitor to Mexicana Link.

Aren't those Indy Air's old seats, or did Chautauqua replace them after getting their CRJs?

Not so sure, but I´m guessing that Chautauqua replaced them, hopefully they´ll change them in the mid term as the showing some tear.

It's NOT a near competitor to Link for 2 reasons:

1) MX Link is based at GDL instead of MEX.
2) And the most important... MX and VW codeshare out of MEX. In fact there are some chances we might see a few Aeromar ATR's painted in MX color scheme operated by Aeromar.

So do you think the reg series would be XA-*MI, with the exception of XA-AMI (it's a Hawker 700)?
