I hope that happens, since CUN
is dominated by foreign carriers. Let's see if that does come true in the short term. I wonder which routes they'll be flying...fighting back UA
...opening new routes...complementing AA
service...operating charter scheduled service...
or, could those slots be used in order to operate the flights to Central America in case IB
decided to move its MIA
hub to CUN
and benefit from their new alliance?
In the mean time, CUN
is heating up. According to justplanes.com:
received approval for the Ft Lauderdale-Cancun route and plans to start service on July 17th with a weekly flight on Saturdays with the Airbus A319. US Airways did not receive approval for 2 other routes it had applied for, they were Washington Dulles and Baltimore to Cancun.
plans to inaugurate weekly nonstop service from Kansas City to Cancun on July 3rd, pending approval from the Mexican government. The airline would operate an Airbus A319 on this route.
