Aeromexico's 6420 (MEX-SFB)

Sun Jul 28, 2002 10:23 am

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.

Later,
Chris in Orlando

It was a charter flight. AeroMexico does not have scheduled service to SFB and flights in that number range are charters.

Flynavy-

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.

So, then, is it generally accepted that Aeromexico operates its scheduled services into MCO, and their charter services into SFB? Aeromexico is listed on the airline list traffic signs at SFB.

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.
