I was looking through a flight-tracker tonight and found Aeromexico 6420. It seems that Aeromexico serves both SFB and MCO. Was 6420 a charter or scheduled service? Any info. will be greatly appreciated.

That DC-10-30 was Omni Air International. On Friday, we were pushing a JMC A330-200 on the taxiway, he started #1 and we heard a "pop", he couldn't start the engine and the plane is still at the airport right now awaiting maintenence.
That Omni DC-10 took all the people stranded from the broken down JMC back to England, it's ALL economy inside, 380 seats. There's a JMC 757-200 coming in later tonight with techs to try and fix the RR on the A330. I also heard they're bringing a brand new engine, but I don't see how that's possible on a 757. There's also a Comet Air A310 coming in tonight as well, being operated by JMC. The JMC 757 is staying overnight and leaving at 11:00 AM tomorrow and I'll assume the JMC A330 will leave with it, if its engine is fixed.
The AeroMexico flight is a charter flight for some telephone sales group.

Yeah, what you said sounds about right. I don't know what AMX does at MCO, but every Saturday afternoon for the past 3 weeks, an MD-80 comes in.
About those signs at SFB with all the airline names on them:
I wouldn't pay much attention to those. ATA is still on there, which no longer comes to SFB, Aeropostal is on there too, and I haven't seen them since summer of '01. Even then, they had around 2 flights per week.
The Sanford Airport kind of "stretches" its traffic, if you know what I mean.
A few months ago, there was an article on their website: "Swiss carrier inaugurates service at Orlando-Sanford International"
From the way they made it sound, it was something significant. but it's just an Edelweiss A332 making a tech-stop every Saturday at SFB coming from ZRH going to CUN.
