I think CO will benefit a lot from the US too. It sounds as if MX is done. In the other thread it says ILFC wants 12 aircraft back and obviously someone else is taking aircraft so anytime the dispatch a plane outside of Mexico they are going to have to be worried that it won't come back and with passengers hearing about this they are going to start booking away.
You can also bet that as soon as creditors start hearing that aircraft are being seized they will do whatever they can to be next to get their hands on their assets so they don't lose out. MX can only loose so much before they pass that point of no return. I think its safe to say that if ILFC does something dramatic and takes all 12 aircraft in the near future MX will be past that point and have no chance.

Mexicana got A330's to go to Madrid, more 767's to go to London-Gatwick and why fly 12 times a week to Buenos Aires ? They should have stayed within the range of their A320's. Empire building in Latin America always seems to end, end badly. Remember AeroCondor in Colombia and their A300, lasted 1 year.

I wonder if MX caught the same bug that infected so many USA airlines...having to fly everywhere worldwide. A number of USA airlines can step up flights to Mexico and Volaris, Interjet, AeroMar and VivaAerobus can increase capacity on a number of routes. I would hate to see MX go Adios since I have had a lot of good experiences with them.

Well, it is no secret that the government's agenda includes fostering a MX-AM combination to create a single, strong flag carrier. Based on this, I would venture to guess that if things get really bad at MX, AM would end up absorbing MX's 767s, perhaps a number of A320s, and its routes to / slots at LGW, South America, Canada, the U.S. destinations it does not serve, etcetera. Just speculation but I think it is a reasonable assumption based on how many times the Minister of Communications and Transportation has openly declared that MX and AM need to merge.
Next flights: MEX-JFK-MEX AM 788 | MEX-JFK-FCO AM 788/AZ A332 | AMS-MEX 74M
