I've never flown Aeromexico but I've flown Mexicana many times from LAX to Cabo and found the service very good and friendly (the food was ok, too..don't know if they're still serving meals or not, tho, or gone the way of alot of American carriers) ...probably dosen't make much difference which airline you fly, Aeromexico or Mexicana, since both airlines are owned by the Mexican government controlled holding company Cintra....

You won´t find much difference, but Mexicana got the
best in-flight service, also all their staff is very friendly to you!

I flew MTY-CUN with a stop in MEX last year on Mexicana, MTY-MEX was a F100, but flight MEX-CUN was on a A320, It was delayed 4 hours because mechanical problems, and they didn't do anything, but keep us walking during 3 hours telling us different gates, (ie. from 9 to 13, from 13 to 3, etc.) they didn't let us take another flight (AM or MX) nor being stand-by passengers, and they even didn't gave us a coke. I was kinda disappointed of their service which is usually good. Return flights were awesome, CUN-MEX on a 757, best flight and service I ever got, and MEX-MTY on a F100, a good flight.

Both are good, AM is more like for business people, and MX for tourists.
