I bet they're taking the slots that U.S. carriers are putting on hold.

Yes, this is good news for the industry. The Azteca livery is also very sharp with a strong Mexican identity!

I read on a newspaper that they were getting some extra B737-300's and they were working with Pegasus a deal to get more B737-700's on lease.

This week Azteca started three new routes:

MEX - CUN (Cancun)
MEX - CUU (Chihuahua)
MEX - GDL (Guadalajara)

Next routes will be:

MEX - ELP (El Paso, Texas)
MEX - ABQ (Alburquerque, New Mexico)
TRC - CUU - ABQ (Alburquerque, New Mexico)
Pending goverment approval

Azteca has now 2 737-700s (XA-AEP and XA-AEQ). Are those 737NGs already operating?

The ABQ-MEX route will do great here, due to the fact that we do have a lot of Mexican nationals living here. It will be great to see a new airline enter ABQ also. Will they use a -700?

They should be using their B737-700's if they get the route and start flying it. Remember that more 737NG will come.
