Finally they started this new service! I hope AeroCaribe and Mexicana to stay for a long time in CVJ. Which I think they will......!
Just checked out the fares between MX
, and I saw there are only 10 usd of difference.
- (1049 pesos) 105 usd + tax (one way)
- (949 pesos) 5 usd + tax (one way)
I think there's no bargain for the people living at Mexico City, so it will be the same if you fly from MX
), Mexico">MEX or CVJ to Guadalajara., so we could say that the only persons who'll fly this route will be locals from Cuernavaca.
Also remember A. Internacionales fares of the CVJ-BJX of (299 pesos) 29 usd + tax (one way) and also the CVJ-GDL
was (499 pesos) 49 usd + tax (one way). There's a lot of difference between Mexicana and Aerolineas Internacionales fare, but I think this route still
It's also evident Mexicana got no aircrafts to cover both routes..... (lack of Fokker's) so that's why they decided to put AeroCaribe as the airline flying into MTY
. I was told that maybe in the near future they could suspend the CVJ-MTY
service with AeroCaribe and trade it with Mexicana.
Mexicana and AeroCaribe took so long to take this routes because of the airport lack of mainteinance.... first Mexicana wanted to cover both routes with the A319/A320 but they didn't because of Cuernavaca's runway and it's poor mainteinance, CVJ's runway didn't permit the operation of aircrafts with engines on the wings (because of the rocks and other stuff you might find while takeoff or landig) that's why they choose the F100 and DC9. If you remember, AeroCaribe had no problems with the B727.
Rojo and Pzurita1, said that this routes won't be succesful because they are not ending at a border city, but you might think in the possible connections. You can't connect if you fly to MTY
but you do have possibilities to take more flights in GDL
. The first flight GDL
is at 7:10 a.m. I was told MX
was thinking on the possibility to change this flight to an hour later in order to give more options to connect, people from Cuernavaca and Mexico City who fly to GDL
on the first flight and it's final destination is TIJ
Finally I think there will be a third airline soon in Cuernavaca which is AeroMexico. They will fly a direct route CVJ-TIJ
The crews...... I'm very sorry for the F100 pilots and F/As who'll have to sign at MX
), Mexico">MEX, take a van from the company and drive all the way to CVJ. It will take a long time.... and It will be a very exhaused trip for the crews but MX
will paid their crews since the first sing at MX
I really want to see this new MX
routes! Glad to see they are thinking on opening MX
), Mexico">MEX-Calgary before ACA
. Also it's good to see more routes to the US! And finally I think Quito will be a nice addition. Also I would like to see La Paz and Buenos Aires back, but probably we have to get more 757s and 767s... they need more aircrafts in their fleet.
Another fleet movement, two more Fokker's will leave MX
's fleet. So they will be flying with 8 only. MX
just add 2 more A320s... XA-TXT and N447MX, that makes 27...., so they almost get to 30 as they planned to end this year.
FLY M E X I C A N A!!!!!!
