Maybe the Blue Line can be extended to Charles/MGH underground. That would make for an easy transfer. Otherwise, if the weather is decent it's be...

Re: Aeromexico axes MEX-BOS/PDX/IAD + MTY-LAS + GDL-SJC

It wouldn't surprise me if VL starts BOS, I think they already have the route authority to do so. And I could see them adding frequencies to PDX. Its open skies now but right slots are hard to come by at MEX. Do you mean Y4/Volaris? I would rather see B6 get close with 4O and feed them at MEX. GDL/...

BOS-MEX is a horrible red-eye on AM. Maybe that's one of the reasons why it doesn't work out. They tweaked the schedule quite a bit in their second tour of duty and settled into the red eye from BOS. It has to be one of their longest US-Mexico routes too. Its not a massive market either. Chalk up a...
