Not at all. I know these Mexican Aviation threads tend to last a good 2 months while they pick up 200+ replies... so it's just basically covering the period.
Now back to the topic.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to make license conversions. I currently have a Canadian Pilot's license and would be interested in having the Mexican one... Any tips? I know the DGAC website is not being too clear to me so... I'd very much appreciate some help.

How's the pilot demand in Mexico at the moment?

Thanks!

Patience Aeolus!

Big patience!

You want a Private or a Commercial?

If Private you don't need nothing but ask for a convalidation and it will be given to you with no problem at all.

If you want a commercial...

It's a Big Brother, rules change every month and everyone has a different case.

I recommend you to approach "Licencias" at MEX and go with your papers and show them your situation and what do you have to do exactly.

Basically you'll need to do the theorical CIAAC exam and a practical test + 10 hours of flight school in Mexico.

CIAAC's phone for you to ask for the next exam and papers you have to handle there is:

57239300 ext. 18654

Then go on to DGAIR of SEP to live the paper and multiple hassle of copies of papers and papers and payments.

DGAIR is on the 6th floor in a building near to Televisa Chapultepec at MEX.

After that, get an appointment at "Profesiones" and finally go back to Licencias where you started to get your provisional flying license until you have your Cedula and Certificate printed.

This one is somewhere in Insurgentes Av. I haven't got to this step yet until January 13th 2012, that's the day they have free space.

It's insane and a total hassle.

Reforma, a Mexican newspaper, reports that traffic between Mexico and Italy has increased 51.3% since January:

http://www.reforma.com/negocios/articulo/636/1271828/?grcidorigen=1

I guess most of this traffic is going FCO-CUN or MXP-CUN, but it would be interesting for AM to relaunch MEX-FCO in the future, specially if FCO is a Skyteam hub. Did Alitalia ever fly to MEX? Does anybody know why did the previous flight stopped in MTY? I always though that the 767s could do the job both ways.


The article also mentions a slight increase in flights from the UK and Switzerland.

I think as previously discussed, the flight had to stop in MTY because of range issues flying from MEX. The return leg I have no idea why it stopped in MTY. It's sort of what they're doing with the NRT and PVG flights in TIJ (temporarily SJD) for the 772 and 763/762 aircraft. AM is just waiting to have their 787s to be able to make it to those markets with not a lot of seats but with the right range. NRT and PVG would be some of the first destinations IIRC to have the 787 sent to.

It'd be great to see AM in FCO or MXP some time soon served non-stop from MEX.
Any idea how AM is doing on their Canadian adventure? Any chance we could see AC giving up one frequency on YYZ-MEX and AM hopping in the train? Is YVR still served by AC?

What news on Magnicharters ? It's been a while since I've heard anything from them!

YES. Daily Vancouver-Mexico City by Air Canada using A319 planes.
There are other services by AC to Mexcian seaside resorts of course direct from Vancouver.

As to your question of AC giving up one frequency to Toronto from Mexico City I find it very doubtful. They already gave up Montreal earlier this year.

According to airlineroute.net AM will be adding a fourth weekly frequency to NRT starting in April. The flight will operate MEX-TIJ-NRT on the outbound flight Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturday. The inbound flight will be flown nonstop NRT-MEX on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Boeing 767 is to be used on the flights. Amadeus is showing the fourth flight. Good to see AM expanding in Asia. Would like to see them expanding more in Asia like opening ICN. Would be a good destination and a nice hub to hub route if operated with the 787s.

In other news, both Frontier and Southwest/Airtran have applied to fly Chicago-CUN since USA3000 will cease operations sometime in Janaury. Frontier proposal is to have the route transfer to them from USA3000 to operate flight on behalf of Apple Vacations out of ORD but WN objected to this and has submitted their own application to operate the route out of MDW.

And wasn't FL going to be flying to MEX sometime soon as well?
Chicago-CUN I imagined as a Volaris route which never opened... Will they offer good connections with Volaris' network?

Yes, Airtran is going to start flying from both SAT and SNA to MEX. SAT-MEX starts May 24, and SNA-MEX June 3rd. FL is also going to fly SAT-CUN, and SNA-SJD. Since the flights are going to be flown by Airtran I don't know if they will be feeding into Volaris network at MEX. I assume both Airtran and Volaris may 'codeshare' just like WN and Y4 do. It would be the smart move for WN/FL to have more access into Y4's network at MEX. The airtran flights into MEX arrive and depart midday good time to connect to some Y4 flights.

I too thought Volaris would open MDW-CUN but it has not happened.

This is fantastic news Mexicana757! Thanks for the update. AM cannot get the 787s soon enough.

On other AM news, AM has started ZCL-ORD, which is a three-weekly route, and on January 9 AM will launch daily MTY-PBC flights. AM will focus on the domestic market in 2012.

Yes Eddie, but on the other hand, AM is dropping Miami-Cancún altogether at least for the next 3 or 4 months after having barely begun services to compete with American last July. That is no way to foster a market and least of all profit from the lucrative Cuba market that would head for Havana connecting through Cancún.
Mexicana was excellent at this....

True, Mexicana would code-share many other flights through MIA with American and this option is not available to Aeromexico but it makes you wonder what the marketing and strategic plan of the airline works like that you begin a route and drop it barely 6 months later, especially one like Cancún - Miami which is always jam-packed.
I flew to Caracas today via MIA from Cancún and, though the flight was an early bird one (06.55 am which means you have to drag out of bed at 4 am), it was full to the brim, and just about half of the passengers were locals (ie Mexicans, and believe you me, I counted them !!) not foreigners returning home after a holiday in paradise....

It seems that AF is bringing the 777-300ER to MEX next year. I was looking at flights to/from Europe in late March and early April of 2012, and the AF site shows the 77W in the booking engine for the dates I searched. It is interesting because the SkyTeam PC TravelDesk shows 744s for those dates. Anyone can confirm?

It sure is fantastic news. I too think those 787s need to get to AM soon!! Maybe place a few more on order.   AM should look into opening ICN, or maybe more China services, PEK or HKG.

Should be interesting to see the numbers of AM on ZCL-ORD and Y4 on ZCL-MDW, to see how both are doing on the route.

Well, AM will now receive seven instead of the original five. In any event, I agree with you, Seven is not enough. The seven 788s will have to work very hard to serve NRT, SCL, EZE, BCN and CDG. If I am not mistaken, AM also wants to switch PVG to 788 from 77E, so AM should be looking at a 10 788 fleet so they can add more service to BCN, PVG and SCL, and perhaps launch FCO this time nonstop. I guess that if AM switches PVG to 788s, then EZE could be done with a mix of 788s and 77Es.

AM should look at the -900 as well because of its added range.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

It appears Viva will not fly MTY-MDW during the slow winter months. The flight shows up restarting again by the end of March. Tried to check past March but it seems like VB's website you can only book up until the end of March.

This morning flight MDW-MLM is being flown by the same 738 that flew in last night from MEX. And it appears Volaris has increased capacity on MEX-LAX too, yesterday a 737-800 was on the route.

Are these 738s being operated by AM for Y4?

From what I have read in another forum, that A320 was late in being delivered and still needs to be registered with DGAC and FAA. So I guess shortage of aircraft.

This winter Y4 seems to have things sorted out at MDW when it comes to deicing . On Saturday it was snowing and the morning flights went out as normal, well with about 30minute to an hour delay maybe had to do with the flights getting in late Friday evening.

That is not a good reason. DL has a trans-Atlantic JV with AF, KL and AZ for flights between North America and Europe (plus PPT and India) and AF has not stopped sending planes with first class to Canada or the United States even though DL, KL and AZ do not offer first class.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

From what I have read in another forum, that A320 was late in being delivered and still needs to be registered with DGAC and FAA. So I guess shortage of aircraft.

Mmmm, Interesting! So they are still pushing the fleet to its max. The difference with AM is that they do wet lease other aircraft to sort things out instead of dry leasing some and adding frequencies to keep the fleet operating to the max capacity and also delaying flights like crazy. Thanks for the info. now I know I can fly on a Boeing when buying a Y4 ticket, LOL.

AM will invest 1,300 million USD in the next 24 months, to get “new equipment” and to strengthen client oriented policies at MEX T2. The demand of 5D at T@ has grown exponentially and service has suffered, specially in those remote gates!

Did AF previously offer F(P) on CDG-MEX-CDG?

Yes, with the 77E. It had 4 seats.

Well it's a good enough reason for AF not to offer F(P) in all US markets, Eddie. Not all US markets offer four(4) classes of service period! Only markets that can support it (F/P).

Aeromar today applied to the DOT to fly SAT-SLW(Saltillo). The airline plans to fly the route on April 1, 2012. Aeromar received approval from DGAC two weeks ago to fly the route. VW plans to operate the route as MEX-SLW-SAT.

In that same application Aeromar seeks to have old route authorities that were granted to them in 2005 be renewed, those being SAT-GDL/ZLO(Manzanillo) and MEX-LRD/SAT. VW states if granted the routes, they will fly them with ATR42 or with other aircraft they acquire or lease. VW looking at adding larger regional planes? ATR72, Q400, CRJ700/900, E-170/175....   

I find it interesting they want the MEX-SAT route. Seems like they want that route by default because it was awarded in a past application. Seems like they want to take this route away from Interjet. Aeromar fell asleep when it came to asking for this route as an extra-bilateral.
OST-1995-379-0032

Looks like the flavor of the month is SAT.

Can anyone confirm the frequencies of AM's MEX-DEN service during the next 3-4 months? I found this article that suggests there are daily or more than daily flights:
http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/ne...tier-airlines-to-partner-with.html

However, I searched the SkyTeam PC TravelDesk and could only find 9 weekly flights in December, 5 weeklies in early January, and then 3 weeklies from mid January onwards. Can anyone clarify? I am planning a trip to DEN for the February or March long weekend and I am not finding nonstops on the TravelDesk. Thanks!!!

  • Boeing 767 -3P6 23764 158 N964PG Pegasus Aviation ferried 22dec11 MEX-MIA, Mexicana cs ex XA-MXE

    This sounds about right, Eddie. DEN-MEX is mainly seasonal and once the Winter Holidays pass, nonstop service is discontinued. If you want to fly SkyTeam, take AM MEX-SLC-DEN (if they are still flying into SLC.)
