Ran a search and didn't see this anywhere else.

Mexicana and the oneworld alliance have officially set the date for Mexicana to join and begin offering full member benefits. The date is Tuesday, 10 November 2009.

On that date, Mexicana will join oneworld as a full member and its partners MexicanaClick and MexicanaLink will join as affiliate members.

There has been some delay in getting Mexicana into the alliance - they were originally supposed to join officially in May - due to, from what I hear, were some issues with technical systems, training, marketing program coordination, etc. Nonetheless, this is very good news for oneworld, as this bolsters their already strong leadership position in Latin America anchored by AA, LAN and Iberia.

Great news! I look forward to having them in OneWorld!

But OneWorld has got to be more agressive in getting new airlines. They practically invited themselves to the situation they are in with JL.

Welcome to oneworld, Mexicana! I hope they'll be put in with the other OW member carriers in Concourse D at MIA now.

Congratulations Mexicana. I was part of the original team that worked with them in preparing them to join STAR. Great airline and a good addition to Oneworld.

I am very happy to see Mexicana join Oneworld. My past experiences with Mexicana have been very positive. They are very professional and flying them reminds me of the good old days of flying. My next flight in on Christmas Eve from SMF to GDL.

Will MX pick up routes where AA might be weaker and MX could do better? I.e., AE on
DFW-GDL and of course AA would codeshare? MX has great flexibility with their a/c compared to the majority of North American carriers. IF AA only sees GDL needs ERJ's maybe this could be improved by putting MX on the route twice a day with the Airbus and start it out with the 318. Just a thought.

AA is increasing DFW-GDL capacity itself this winter, with the return of mainline M80 aircraft for one of the two flights. I expect the other daily flight will also be upgraded to an M80 at some point as the Mexican market recovers.

Mexicana will join oneworld

Will MX paint any a/c in OneWorld livery?

Congrats MX!

Maybe we can see Mexicana Click or Link pickup CZM-MIA for AA/AE? or start MIA-Merida finally?



Nothing better than making love at 35K Feet!

We really need MTY-MIA by AA or MX, anyone.


Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT
