I wonder if Interjet would look at serving OAK in the SF Bay Area in the next few years.
After studying their business model, I can tell you: If there's a penny to be made, they will go into any CA
/NV/NM/AZ/CO/OK/TX/IL/NY/NJ destination they can.

... I am happy for Interjet and for us the customers alright !

I would say all airlines should be worried of IJ.
This business model is flexible enough to get bites out of every carrier around, but will not kill anyone in particular. For now, it has forced AM
to reset their handling of the TLC
market through Aerolitoral and Click... And that, right upon starting operations.

Volaris just ordered 16xA319s to begin with (and I'm sure that in a moment we will get tired of all the noise by Televisa and Slim all over Mexico and later todo México es territorio de Volaris), contrary to IJ which took from the SH market 7xA320s and slowly they will boost it's fleet to the end of 07 with it's 10xA320s, but consider that GOLMex has all the experience and tips from Brazil which has similar conditions to the mexican market.
Volaris order has a caveat; a clause that allows to immediately cede rights and obligations to a leasing company should the company decide to. The leasing company has pre-accepted this condition. Interestingly enough, Pedro Aspe has been voicing to the four winds the Mexican government is not setting forth the conditions he needs to run his airline and thus there may not be even a Volaris maiden flight. He is playing his cards well, putting pressure on the government, albeit the calendar does not favour him by a lot; barely six month to election day. If A Volar doesn't go through, Carlos Slim has a second card to play; a back-up plan... through his close friend and collaborator, Fernando Chico Pardo (yes, Jaime's brother).
Talking about advertising... MTY
boasts a ton of street advertising by AM
/5D regarding the new MTY
flights... "como tu quieres" is the motto.
About "GOLMex..." Fernando Chico Pardo announced on 12/7 the new airline will not be named GOL... is a smart guy -he seats in Grupo Carso's Board of Directors adn directs ASUR-, and given the case will be backed by Slim (if Volaris doesn't fly, that is), but "Non-GOLMex" airline's business model is quite different from Interjet's. To begin with, its hub and major business is still likely to be CUN
, so the more directly concerned would be... Mexicana. GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes will only own 25% of the controlling stock and up to 47.5% of the airline.
Notwitthstanding all the foregoing, it will be interesting to see what the presidential candidates stance is with reference to the development of Mexican aviation... So far, the only one who seems to have a faint interest in this agenda is PAN's Jelipe; but neither PRI's Bobby Punch nor PRD's El Peje have even mentioned the topic... I just hope they don't mess with it...
