Aerolineas Internacionales (MEX) To Resucitate?

Wed Apr 25, 2007 5:58 am

Somebody please tell me this article in wikipedia is a joke:

I mean, this is a total give away:

The new fleet consists of 16 Boeing 737-400 for national and U.S. flights and seven 747-400 for the European and Asian flights.

I've found wikipedia to be a pretty reliable soruce for the stuff I usually research, but this is the first time I find something dubious, specially being in the aviation section.

God I hope no :S Sounds like a terrible plan ! I wouldn't like to see a beautiful 744 in Aerolineas Internacionales conditions :S

But well if you read correctly it says that it will start again in February 2007...LOL

Great Joke! Thanks for posting

Isn't Aerolineas Internacionales that one airline that used to have that ugly blue-greenish color?? And there was a rumour that they "hand-painted" their planes? YIKES, I hope they stay 6-feet under!!!

I remember that if you bought something I don´t know in which store like "Elektra" or something like that, you were given a ticket to fly Aerolineas Internacionales. Their livery at the begining looked like something taken out from a middle east airline from the 60s and then repainted with the colors of a bathroom of a very old house. The later ones were not uniform among aircraft, and they looked as if a preeschooler had drawn them.
Gosh the news there seem really awkward, Raul Julia-Levy being the new owner, wasn´t he dead? I heard that once, it is only a rumour I presume, and them buying 747 - 400? this sounds really invented. If it is real, I hope nobody flies them, they were the crappiest airlines, I once heard one of the seats iin one of their 737-200 had a tray table pasted with duct tape.
BTW, What´s that of Aerolineas Internacionales flying into La Guardia? AFAIK they never had a place for check in in the International Terminal of MEX...
Hope someone can clarify this, but yes I hope they don´t come back, we don´t need more corrupt businesses in Mexico, lilke TAESA, that are surviving by god knows which means flying passengers at low rates with full service, but sacrificing security.
