Aerolineas returns to MEX! Anyone know when the original service started? From what I recall, in the 50s and 60s, MEX and EZE were linked by Trans Canada, but don't know if I'm correct.

Welcome back AR!

There are billboards throughout Mexico City advertising the EZE-LIM-MEX service and a fare of U.S.$499 is quoted in those billboards. Let's see how many pax AR can steal from MX.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

Aerolineas last flight to MEX was AR1386 EZE-MEX-CUN-EZE on August 11th, 2000, operated by B747-287 LV-OOZ (now with Air Plus Comet). Later AR kept on flying to CUN only, but with combined flights with MIA or PUJ. Last flight to CUN was a charter one on August 5th, 2001, also with B747-287.

So no more passengers being tortured in a MD80 EZE-LIM?

Great news for the new air of Aerolineas Argentinas, although you have to remember the best way to connect Argentina and Mexico is LAN (just kidding Big grin )

I'm on my way to MEX to catch up with Guerra and Quetzalcoatl! APM team will be there ready for the pictures! A shame it's not a 340 or 747 service as it used to be!

WOO! This is great news for EZE, LIM and MEX! AR now has an AM and PM flight to EZE from Lima. I hope that someone gets pictures. If any of you A.netters fly EZE-LIM-MEX you'll be stopping in Lima during the day, make sure you get pictures!! Good luck to AR on this venture, hopefully someone can give us the loadfactors.

Hola a todos!

I thought Aerolineas already flew to MEX. I was born and lived in Argentina for 15 years and I always thought that Aerolineas flew to MEX. One question though, I have realized Aerolineas has decreased its destinations to Europe from EZE in the last few years. I remember before Aerolineas used to fly to cities like Zurich, Paris, London, etc from EZE. How come those flights are no longer excecuted from EZE?

Saludos

One last thing I forgot to mention in my last post. For what reason did Aerolineas stop services to MEX back in 2000?

Just talk with APM team, they are now at Mexico City international airport waiting for flight AR1368 to arrived but nothing! Anyone knows if the flight is on time, or is it cancelled or what's the problem?? I can't find any information.
Anyone knows something?

Hi guys,

I saw the plane at MEX last night, but im pretty sure it was a A340, not an A310. i saw an exact one in MIA earlier that day.

Well it looked real nice at the gate!

Airborn86, yeah Aerolineas used to fly to MEX using B747-200, i think that Aerolineas stop flying to MEX beacuse of 2 probable reasons:
1. There was no PAX demand.
2. The critical economy problem in Argentina

however i maybe lying to you, i dont know the exact reason, maybe Ghost77 knows what happend.

I'm hearing from a travel agent, that the freaking flight is booked through march. Plus their Y fare is $640 USD round trip so...they really entered the market without any illusions and agressively

AR385:

Funny you should say that, since on the night before the inaugural service, the flight still had available seats in both "Ejecutiva" and "Turista", or at least on AR's website...

Any confirmation on whether it was an A310 or A340?

Saludos,

Congratulations AR for this new service, and the best luck in the years to come. I really hope that you can "gain" more and more passengers each day [not "stealing" from MX as EddieDude said][just kidding Eduardo].

As soon as anyone in MX has a (some) picture(s), please share it/them with us!

Thanks.

You should have asked Santa for some eye glasses!  Nuts

It was a A310, we waited over 2 hours for his arrival.
Didn't even care of a shot as I was freezed and tired of waiting, maybe next week.
