Mexicana 767?

Mon Dec 24, 2001 1:54 pm

Hello everyone,

A few months ago some people rumored that Mexicana was getting a 767 and that it was already in their hangar.

Does any one know if they did get one or if they are planning to get one in the future?

Also, does anyone know about AeroMexico´s plans for future fleet?

Thanks,

Archie

I have not heard anything about a 767 for Mexicana. I did hear that Aero Mexico intended to buy 15 737-600s, but I am not sure of the status of that after 9/11.

Cintra, the company who control Mexicana and AeroMexico is considering to order either A320s or 737NG/717 to replace the old MX727/AMDC9s.

Hello Everyone!

Ok, in less than 3 months Mexicana just retired 5 727s and soon 3 more.. by FEB2002 they will have 13, 727s than 20 they used to have.

B727´s no longer with MX:
XA-HOH
XA-HON
XA-IEU
XA-MEJ
XA-MEJ

And Soon:
XA-MEE
XA-MEF
XA-MEH

Also Mexicana years ago start flying with only 12, A320, now their fleet have 24, A320 and the 2 new A319. So Mexicana it´s all ready substituding their fleet.

A320s
F-OHME
F-OHMF
F-OHMG
F-OHMH
F-OHMI
F-OHMJ
F-OHML
F-OHMM
F-OHMN
N280RX
N291MX
N292MX
N304ML
N332MX
N347TM
N361DA
N368MX
N369MX
N405MX
N415MX
N428MX
N467MX
A319
N618MX
N634MX

Today I saw a B757-2 from National Airlines in Mxa´s home manteinance base, don´t know if it´s here for a Class D service or if it´s getting to MX´s fleet. (Hope it´s the last one I mention).

About Mexicana´s B767 that wasn´t true, there was no B767 in Mexicana´s home manteinance base.

Aeromexico will give their DC9s to maybe some other Mexican´s airlines. Like Allegro which it just got 1 DC9 (N935ML) and maybe some other carriers like Aerocaribe, Aerocalifornia and maybe Aviacsa will get these DC9s.

I heard on the past days that maybe Aeromexico will substitude all the DC9s for MD´s 81/82/83/88 and MD87s. We have to remember that AM got all ready 35 MD´s and today I just saw in the hangar another MD all white.. (TF-MDA) maybe another acft for AM.

MD87
XA-SFO
XA-TPM
N1075T

N945AS
N946AS

Aeromexico in March 2003 will start their MEX-MXP route so I think they are getting another B767, I don´t think with the current 5, B767 will handle MEX-MTY-TIJ-MAD-CDG-SCEL-SBGR-MXP at the same time with too many freqs.
XA-JBC
XA-RVZ
XA-TNS
XA-TOJ
XA-APB

Also in Mexican Airlines (AM and MX) we also have to mention some other carriers of the region and compare them. Like Lan Chile I can compare it with Mexicana and Varig with Aeromexico.

Boeing and Airbus offer their products for Short-Medium range was the:
B737-6/B717 and the A319/320.
for Medium-Large range was the:
B767-3/4 and the A340.

So if Lan Chile decided to get the A320 I think Mexicana in a near future they can get the A340.

And in Aeromexico´s case, all their acft´s are either McDonnel Douglas or Boeing. So for the short-medium range maybe they get more MD´s or the B717!!! Which I´ll be very glad if they get the B717. And for medium-long routes they will go for the B777 as Varig did.

So concluding... we also have to mention the big problem of both airlines is CINTRA (which also Mexican government is behind the 2 mayor airlines in the country) the problem is not about money, the problem is CINTRA. So when they split CINTRA things will chance, and Mexican carriers will be even better!

Thanks everyone,

I would really like to see some 737-600 for AeroMexico and even the 777.

Also an A340 for Mexiacana would look very nice. It would be nice to se more Wide Bodied aircraft in Mexican airlines.

Regards,

Archie
