I think that a merge in this case won't be the best solution at this point.
are making in my opinion bad movements when eliminating the competition they had in some routes, as is happening with HMO
, DGO, CUN
, VER, LAX
The structure and markets they serve, are completely different one from the other, as fleet commonality... In my opinion, both would have to reach an important precence in the USA and Canada... MX
could handle the routes to South America, and add new destinies to Europe from a hub in Cancun, serving vacation travelers, while AM
could open new routes from MEX
to cities as LHR
, etc... to serve the mexican business market, which is huge.
The government should also create a new airline or group after selling CINTRA to create a real competitive environment, and not only "prepared" markets as AM
are doing with QA
should merge not with MX
, but with 5D, to create a really strong airline serving regular and express routes, while MX
could keep QA
but as a low cost option to some destinies, not only as a regional airline.
If things go on as they're doing today, we'll see a new regional airline serving all mexican routes with ERJ's and Fokkers, while MX
would be a monster in the USA, Canada and Central/south America, and AM
will be a non-profitable airline flying to some destinies in the US with few frecuencies, and to MAD
As someone stated before, we need a TAESA to compete with our expensive airlines.
