At this point, they are certainly not thinking much about integrating their sked's with any WN connections! (I know, that agreement is at least a year away...)

Only one route from LAX (to TLC) - looks like half the service they are starting OAK with. (They certainly have more competition out of LAX than OAK.) Nonetheless, interesting.

Good luck to Volaris; this will be one to watch with interest. (It is nice to see something positive happening at OAK!)

It's good to see that there is good news for OAK. I was hoping they would have daylight departures to Mexico. But beggars can't be choosers.

How many Mexican airlines fly LAX-GDL? Could it be that the Mexican allocation is taken up and therefore Volaris cannot get traffic right?

Good point. Checking some random dates in the OAG, it looks like AM, MX (and AS) are the 3 cx currently flying the route. I do know that most Mexico-US routes permit 3 US and 3 Mexican cx but I believe there are a few that are limited to 2 and 2 -- perhaps the more business-oriented routes?; GDL could therefore be one of them...?

If, however, that is the case, I would think Y4 would be able to come up with some other routes to take advantage of the huge (potential) customer base in the LA area.

Per the expanded bilateral, GDL and MTY city pairs now allow 3-3. The 2-2 rule is today almost exclusively for MEX city pairs.

Yes sir, most cities allow 3 airlines per side...... The Mexican government is mostly interested in protecting MEX, CUN and SJD......everything else is fair game

Thanks for that, guys.

So Y4 COULD fly LAX-GDL if they want. Hmmmm; I guess they feel the market is adequately served by the others (and, for that matter, all other markets from LAX as well...) Not really what I expected to see for a So Cal start-up from the new kid on the block.

Hello,

I just check the Volaris web site and try to make a reservation for Nov 20, 2009, but there seems to be a bug in their web site since I can't book a ticket for Nov 20, return 29, 2009. I called Volaris and they seem to have a ticket reservation policy wrong. Here is why:

1. Called Volaris to make a reservation since the dates were wrong in their web site.
2. Reservations are only "cash reservations", meaning that you call to make a reservation, but you need to pay in cash in one of the Mexican departments stores or banks like Sambors or Banamex. I mentioned to the customer rep that none of those departments stores or banks existed in the US. She mentioned that the other option was just to pay. I asked if I can called back with in 24 hrs to purchase the ticket, but she mentioned that I would be quoted a new rate? I asked how come? She mentioned that they can hold a reservation ticket and call back, but a new rate would be applicable.

So, what is the point to make a reservation if your rate is only good if you go to one of those Mexican department stores or banks that only do business in mexico? And calling back doesn't guarantee the rate.

3. Volaris needs to understand that most of the ticket sales in the US are via credit card transactions and that it is normal to hold tickets for 24 hrs and call back with a credit card to do the payment.
I don't know, but it seems that they need to modify their reservations policy.

Any thought?

Yes they could indeed serve GDL.

Anyhow from what I hear the schedule that is out for LAX is only a slice of their intended flying, and we will see a build up of frequencies and routes in the near future.

I will try and snap a picture of Y4 at OAK when they commence their flights. It will also be around the same time as the MX departures.
