Starting at the end of October, Magnicharters will be flying three times a day MTY-MEX-MTY on a 737-200 XA-MAD in an all first class configuration. The plane only has 68 first class seats, J class seat pitch, gourmet food and free bar with top-notch drinks, such as Grey Gosse vodka. About $2,800 pesos roundtrip plus taxes. There are no charges for schedule changes or cancellations
This is an interesting experiment. But it reminds me of that "Legend Airlines" up at Love Field that went bust. I also don't understand why they chose one of their 200's instead of their 300.
Anyway competition is really heating up here in MTY. Last time I had to go to TAM I had to pay $5,500 pesos on Aerolitoral. Now Aviacsa has taken up the route, we'll see how AM reacts.
Is a fare war looming? Do we finally have a civil aviation state policy in Mexico?
