Aeromexico used to fly to YUL, YYZ, BOG, PTY and BUE during the 70s. Now all those routes are being flown succesfully by Mexicana. Why did AM drop them? I have the impression that Mexicana is growing faster than AM these days. They also have a younger fleet.

Yeah, Mexicana is getting stronger, I think, and besides, they are already replacing the old fleet of 727's, and opening new routes.

I think AM drop those routes when they were almost in bankrupt, before federal government took control of it.

Hey Ricardo, whats up? Long time no see!

Yes, AM did fly to Montreal, Bogota and the Mexico City-Panama-Caracas route up until 1988 when Aeronaves de Mexico went bankrupt and Aerovias de Mexico was formed a month later to take over the assets of Aeronaves. Thus, the new AeroMexico was born. When the new management took over they reduced the fleet by getting rid of all the DC-9-10s and the DC-8s in order to save money leaving only the DC-10s, MD-80s and DC-9-30 equipment. Because the DC-8s were disposed of, the airline abandoned those routes. Avensa of Venezuela restarted the Caracas-Panama-Mexico City route until Mexicana took over the rights back in 1996. Buenos Aires was flown by AeroMexico between 1992 and 1995 until the Tequila crisis hit the airline once again in which case AM abandoned their Buenos Aires, Frankfurt and Rome destinations and reduced their fleet from 58 to a low 45. So the Mexican airlines have been going from one catastrophe to another basically due to the inability of those governments to handle such situations properly. However, in the latest round of adverse circumstances the airlines have had more stability and therefore seem to be much better poised to withstand adverse effects in the economy.

...or vice-versa

The San Antonio - Monterrey route used to be flown once daily via Mexicana 72S.

Today this route is flown thrice daily via Aeromexico's Aerolitoral, S.A. de C.V. It is code-shared by Aeromexico, Delta and Mexicana. SF3 and SWMs ply the route.

Mexicana served DFW. Today Aeromexico provides service over some of the former MX routes.
