Hello again folks! This is another trip report covering my trip to Mexico and Peru in march this year.
I know I know, it's long overdue; But exams and reading through 900+ pages of materials, metals, tools, corrosions have a higher priority.
Ps. I got 93,25% in Mathematics exam and 87,5% in Module 6 (The one covering +900 pages)
Anyways back to the trip.
A short hop from Mexico City to Campeche on Aeromexico Embraer 190.
1st. Flight with Aeromexico
1st. Flight with an Embraer E190
Load: Roughly 70%
Departure: 4/3 at 0920
Arrival: Same day at 1100
Flight #: AM 2440
Scheduled A/C: Embraer E145
Actual A/C: Embraer E190
Still no lavatory picture, sorry!
No legroom picture either, but I was pretty good
We made our way to the Airport's Domestic Terminal, checked in through the check-in machines and everything went pretty smooth.
We decided to eat some brunch before making our way through security, and I was quite stunned to see that in an international airport like MEX; the menucards was in spanish, and spanish alone! But thankfully enchiladas are language-neutral I guess. That and OJ.
View from the restaurant
I'm glad you asked, the brownish mess is mashed beans, tasty and healthy!
We made our way through security which went like a breeze, I was impressed to see that MEX emplys A LOT of handicapped people to take care of security, immigration and in the information kiosk. Great work!
I do prefere the new livery of Aeromexico, instead of the older metalic one.
Upon boarding our little E190!
The seats was very comfortable and made of leather, or copy leather. Leg room was usually great (Although I'm "only" 180 cm. tall, I really don't understand all the fuss about bad legroom. So far I've only had very few isolated incidents regarding bad legroom.)
In the background we see the A/C we were supposed to have been on, oh well. A new A/C to my log, I didn't complain. Plus the E190 is WAY more roomy than it's little sister.
Where do I sign up for the Mexican Police?
Waiting at the runway
Cleared for take-off!
Ditto, notice the Iberian A340-600
Up and away! Bye bye Mexico City!
Something is written on the mountain, is this common practice in Mexico?
I'd like to thank my mother, for assisting me in taking these two pictures! Of course I had Airliners.net in mind when taking it.
Tsk tsk! Looks like some naughty bird, fouled our bird!
Approaching the Mexican Gulf
In flight service! The cookies were tasty, and well, what can you expect from such a short ride?
Flying over Campeche
Looks like our airport down there
Aaaaand welcome to Campeche!
Shhh! We weren't allowed to take pictures in the terminal, but I did anyway.
Primitive luggage system
Now this is what you can call a "Kodak Moment"
Well, thats it for now folks! I'll return again some day with another trip report.
It will most likely cover my trip with Copa Airlines, starring a Jewish Family with children from hell.

Thanks a lot for the trip report Fallap! I just realized how few reports covering domestic flights in Mexico we have here. I hope you enjoyed Campeche. What did you think of the walled city? Did you visit one or more haciendas?
Quoting Fallap (Thread starter): Something is written on the mountain, is this common practice in Mexico?
I had never seen something like that. I would not say it is common practice hehe.
AM is AeroMexico's code. MX is the code of the defunct Mexicana. Actually, there is no monopoly. It appears as though because many of the pics are from T2. Volaris and Interjet have a very large presence in T1.
Next flights: MEX-AMS KL 74M | AMS-PRG KL E90 | PRG-CDG AF A320 | CDG-MEX AM 788
