Honestly everything is possible, however it depends most on government airport policies and not the airlines themselves. Just look at Reynosa mayor`s answer after an AM
DC-9 overran the runway and crashed into a house some years ago; "..well our airport was made long before those huge aircraft(sic) were on service, only lightplanes(avionetas) used it...and time passed...". With those enourmosly stupid answers it is no wonder we still have centralized operations in MEX
and we have not developed alternatives like CUN
which coud easily become international hubs and why not? attract some US passengers with low fares and superb service. Most foreign passengers, both US and European are highly pleased with AM
service. Just imagine a British passenger flying in an Aeromexico 767-300 from LGW
and then making a short hop to IAD
or any other place) from MTY
instead of enduring a nAAeless AAirline dismal service. Or a Korean pax flying from Seoul into ACA
and then connecting into MEX
with a very short flight. He could even spend some of his spare time in ACA
and bring extra money to the economy.
However for this to happen Mexico needs more committed entrepreneurs and not only self styled "tycoons" who need government help to start a business and give abysmal service and dubious products, go bankrupt...and them blame "globalization" and the NAFTA for their own incompetence.
In order for MExico to develop markets and flights to Asia and other destinations more hubs are needed and a much improved airport infraestrucutre. I`m optimistic, we may see this happen in the not so distant future.
ps Emirates and Singapore Airlines developed in the same principle, a mega hub to offer connections and a superb service
