|Quoting LACA773 (Reply 5):|
Does MX have any other 763s scheduled to come on line since they seem to be really streched for widebodies? Can someone educated me on this?
Not for the moment. MX
has only one long haul route which is EZE
and it's served with the 763. The first 767 came some years ago from SAS ,the lease has now expired and it's supposed to go to a Russian airline. In order to take most of the EZE
brought two (very poor maintained) 763 one from LAB and the other one not sure exactly from where. So MX
is not at the top of their long haul fleet as they've been in years!
The plans and rumors have always been of bringing some new or leased Airbus planes in order to open routes (specially to China because "we're so globalized" etc.. etc...) to Asia and maybe Europe. Unfortunately MX
is not in the best position to acquire some new or leased aircraft specially if it's from a different manufacturer as they'll have to train people to fly Airbus' long haul fleet.
What probably could happen is that if things don't work out to well we'll just keep up bringing old 763 in order to mantain MX
current long haul position.
