If TAP was really clever, and if they had enough fleet to do it, of course, they should fly regularly non-stop LIS
(they have A340s). We all know that there is a big need for another European carrier in MEX
, and TAP would be perfect now that we now AZ
can't do it. LIS
is perfectly located for European, Middle East and African connections to/from MEX
. Actually they already offer very interesting fares from MAD
to Brazil and New York, as well as Johannesburg. They have a very extensive European network, and if they offer competitive rates to and from Mexico, they could compete with IB
in the Europe-Mexico market. Also, as they are so good located in the Iberian peninsula and they serve several destinations in Spain from LIS
, they are perfect to serve the busy Mexico-Spain market, that as we discussed in other forums, desperately needs more carriers.
In Latin America they already serve Caracas, and several destinations in Brazil, so thinking that you will see a TP
doesn't sound too crazy to me.
I wish you could see a TP
340 every afternoon at MEX
parked near the rest of European heavies!!!!
