I came across this excellent article about how Continental chooses which cities in Mexico to serve. It gives a detailed look at their Mexican operations. Here's the link:http://www.latintrade.com/newsite/content/archives.cfm?TopicID=2&StoryID=985
It still amazes me how many cities now have direct service to IAH. CO hopes to serve 35 cities in Mexico by 2005. Once the new international terminal dedicated solely for Continental's usage is completed in 2003, look for CO to increase from the current 20 or so markets served to their goal of approximately 35.
AeroMexico and Mexicana need to respond quickly before CO becomes THE airline for Mexico-US travellers.
