Copa - AeroMexico Announce Codeshare

Tue Jul 31, 2007 1:45 am

Seemingly more like a one-way code share with CM primarily using AM to expand its presence to additional Mexican destinations.

Wonder why AM is not using the opportunity in placing its code on CM flights to places such as Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, etc via the PTY hub?
