Mexican Aviation November 2013

Wed Nov 13, 2013 7:20 pm

OK so I was reading the newspapers earlier and I saw this news report (sorry link only in Spanish), where it mentions that Interjet has canceled flights out of Chetumal airport for today 11/13 due to "runway conditions"; apparently the runway is in need of repairs so Interjet has canceled the flights due to safety concerns.

Looks like they made a "braking coeficient test" on runway 10 with poor results on the first 1/3rd of the runway.

    Holy molly !!! 180 PAX on a 320 !!! I guess Interjet will keep its 32+ pitch and let Volaris cater to the lowest bidder on a 29 inch pitch!

    The best seat in a Plane is the Jumpseat.
