For pilots you are correct, but for maintenance and spare parts it is not true.
Rojo I think for spare parts they've also saved some money. I think its expensive to have a small fleet of 2 319s with CFM and another 2 320s with 2500, but when you have 25 A320s and 16 A319s I think its not that bad!
The reality is that MX got a very good deal for some of the A319's, so here we go again, what is more important, the fleet commonality or the price you get for the aircraft??
I think that the price it's more important!
This is because MX does not only does maintenance for themselves, but also serves several other airlines, so the training and spare parts acquiring works out in benefit of MX with productivity from beyond. Lets say is an extra business.
Wish this could be true! But its not... Servicios a Terceros its run in a weird way! MX
give full support to AWAS and GECAS but some airlines flying into MEx have request to MX
to give mx during the hours aircraft are stand, MX
so far has not accepted all those contracts! They have rejected giving mx service to Lab 767. Panavia, Express Net, AeroUnion, Suramericanas, Taca just to name a few! (so anyone reading this if you have the money and you are willing to invest, contact me, lets built a hangar in MEx to give full mx support to the carriers)
QA employees are paid differently than MX, I think the pilots do belong to ASPA, but not sure if flt attendants belong to ASSA. Anyway don't expect them to merge, same goes for AeroLitoral and AM.
I still believe a merger sooner or later will happen between QA
. What was QA
10 years ago? What is QA
today? Everyday getting closer and closer to what it is MX
. Getting those F100s will be renewing the fleet compared to the old Dc9-15s they had.. the F27s... and now if they change their name to Mexicana Inter this hopefully will be the first step. Perhaps, years ago this did not work but today its a different story and a different administration. You never know!
