Re: Mexico considers allowing domestic cabotage

This crazy stupid idea from this dumb president has more to do with increase traffic at the new airport because of the low number of operations from there. He wants to force more airlines in the AIFA no matter what.

If you can, I thing you should go for the 14 pro or pro max as it has 48MP vs 12MP on the 13.
