I had this chance last year, on a LAX
flight and I loved it! it was very interesting for me, considering that most of the flight is over Mexican territory, I wrote this new experence for me in one of my trip reports. I would like to reproduce here my experience again, and you can see that even I liked it there was a moment when I turned it off:
Nov 20-2003 UA1003 : "The captain said that we could hear the cabin communications with the air controllers in one of the radio channels so I did it, and I liked it, I could hear communications from Aerocalifornia flight 500, Aerocalifornia flight 406, Alaska flight 298, MX975, MX939, Alaska 228, MX920, and MX433. There was a moment that aerocalifornia 500 reported turbulence in the Mazatlan area and then other Aeromexico flight did the same, and after a few minutes we had a moderate turbulence in our flight that the captain asked for permission to descend altitude, and asked all passengers and crew to be seated. Then I preferred to heard music and I heard again the cabin communication channel when we were descending into the Mexico City area. This time I could hear communications from MX902, MX465, AM279, MX436, AM277 and AM185."
