Go to oag.com, and search random Mexican airport codes, as I said. You'll find, for example, that MEX is served from TJ by at least Aeromexico (757s and Md-80s), Mexicana (A320s and 727s), and Aero California (DC-9s).

As far as international flights, AeroCalifornia flies daily to LAX (a 40 min flight in either direction on a DC-9-32, with fares sometimes as low as US$78.00 roundtrip).
Interestingly enough, Mexicana flies to between the two cites but only in one direction from TIJ to MEX with an A320. Flt. 936 operates Mo, Tu, Wed, Fri, & Sat., and flight 934 operates Mo thru Fri. Yhe flights are mainly for aircraft placement rather than to provide scheduled passenger ops.
AVIACSA discontinued service to LAS a while back and now serves only domestic cities.
Aeromexico operates a weekly charter service from TIJ to Havana with an MD-88. Its for a Mexican charter company that primarily caters to Americans wanting to visit Cuba.
Also, during the 9/11 crisis, I'm told that TIJ saw a Korean Air 744 that was on route to LAX from Sao Paulo. Can anyone confirm this, and if so know how long it stayed there?
