So it seems like AM finally woke up and smelled the coffee, ain't that right Ghost?
Hum wish I could share the same opinion, but I don't see it in this way...! Sounds to me more like a copycat strategy!
has gone to TUS
), Canada and several other markets and return with empty hands and big failure results.
They took longer to renew their fleet and things got worse with Boeing's month machinist strike and as for now delivery of the 6 remaining B737s and the 2 B777s are delayed.
They're renewing their fleet but they're not growing... I hope they stay with almost all of their 39 MD80s and keep all new B737s and start showing real growth (pilots, crews, routes, destinies, pax carried, etc)... the routes flown by and B757s fate is unknown and their long haul fleet is small, old and better not mention their long haul network which is a joke. I'm not bashing AM
, is the truth! YES, MX
is almost the same, but less worse, they only lack long haul flights but we all know AM
has always been the government spoiled carrier before the privatization and things got worse after Cintra's creation.
We lack long haul planes and flights out from MEX
to Europe and now things are getting worse for AM
@ TLC from MAD
and soon BCN
and probably at MTY
too from MAD
with low fares and by far additional capacity, and could get even worse with IB
if the decided to attack NM
, all this as a consequence of pure protectionism to AM
at Cintra making mexican carriers less and less competitive with the rest of the world.
at the business market, then they should reinforce their long haul fleet and send 767s to LAX
and add more capacity and offer same frequencies to SCL
do and reinforce Europe... that's what AM
And as LeoDF says, AM
need to RISK, RISK MORE... flying to ONT
from MLM and BJX is RISKING nothing and now that treaties between MEX
and US have been modified we could see a 3rd competitor on those rutes with ZE, 6A
or the new runners!
