Also, an arab (by the looks of it, ex-Saudia) A333 was sunk off the coast of Turkey to enhance tourism and create an artificial reef.

Here are some more : CX Aeroflot? Will AF operate any or are they all for KLM? Aeromexico? Regarding Aeroméxico, I ´ve read in other forums that the Boeing 787-10 could serve well on the airline´s services to Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Madrid, Amsterdam, Paris and ocassional North America (LAX, JFK) ...Jump to post
Alitalia has been flying to Buenos Aires since the late 1940´s, and KLM´s Buenos Aires service (also started in the 1940´s) was restarted in 2011 after being absent for a decade or so... They are not that new... but Norwegian, LEVEL and Edelweiss surely are.Jump to post
Mexico City has a large population. But the city itself is not that big. I mean, distances are not excessive. The thing is that the whole city is congested, traffic is hellish and mass transportation is not enough. Besides, topography doesn´t help much either... I think building a new PCA, upgrading...Jump to post
Those techincal issues were already solved. The other proyect is also going to be developed on top of a low ground, flood-prone zone and even worse ground quality. This has nothing to do with democracy, and has all to do with corruption from the new ruling party, even ignoring mexican businessmen, e...Jump to post
Sorry, can´t recall where, but I read that Iberia won´t send the A359 to MEX and UIO -two of the airline´s top routes- because the plane would struggle to haul all those passengers and freight, an achievement done almost effortlessly by the A340-600. Instead, they remarked that A346s were recently u...Jump to post
FORGOT TO QUOTE REPLY # 50, BY pabloeing But Iberia is all about Airbus. I see the 350K instead of a 777. For increased capacity to some stellar transatlantic routes (MEX, BOG, EZE,etc) I´m sure they´ll order the A350-1000, and for cargo hauling and range the A330/340/350 families have the capacity...Jump to post
SCT, Mexico's Ministry of Transport , said that the aircraft never left the ground. But the cabin video appears to show otherwise, as the plane rose a little bit and then slammed against the runway at least a couple of times. Mmmmm.....As a mexican, I have some doubts regarding SCT. Not Aeromexico, ...Jump to post
If corruption is a "human error", yes, the article is right. Everyone knows that Global Air operates aircraft beyond their limits, omits security measures and pays authorities to avoid negative press. Recent intwerviews with former captain, mechanics and stewardess confirms it. But well, i...Jump to post
The thing is that most of Mexico City´s ground has varying amounts of water, so normal movement is amplified and tends to last longer than the actual earthquake. Add a mountain range bordering the city and you get amplified waves coming back and forth, creating peaks. That´s why a not so damaging ea...Jump to post

AZ's routes to South America are the last profitable ones since a long time... sure EZE, GIG, CCS and BOG but also MEX are worth a 77E from FCO... Except that MEX is about 3000 km north from South America. Mexico is part of North America. Maybe you meant Latin America. But yes! If I´m not mistaken,...Jump to post
If I recall correctly, when they launched cargo services to GDL and MEX, they said that CX was revising stats for passenger service, a hint on their intentions for HKG-MEX. With new MEX (and those16,500ft runways) under construction and the 777Xs underway, I believe the table is being set not only ...Jump to post
Also shown are Berlin, Geneva, Rome, Glasgow, Manchester and Rome....but they don´t fly there. Weird, you might think.

I believe some 4x 787-10s sitting around 300-320 pax. could be useful on the South America (EZE,GRU) and Europe (MAD, CDG) routes. That could free some 787-8/9s for Asia, upgrading AMS or LHR (a success, or so I´ve heard) and opening a new Asian or European destination.
Don´t you think?
Lufthansa´s flight 520/521, now operated with an A340-600, will change to A350-900 this October and, according to some sources, on a daily basis. As of now, LH520/521 operates 5 times a week between MUC and MEX. And still, the airline is waiting for the new MEX to send in their A380s between Frankfu...Jump to post
It will replace the current one, mostly for technical reasons, as flight paths might intersect. Actual MEX will close at the same time the first flight lands at new MEX. The old MEX will be urbanized; a park, residential and commercial development are considered. Some say a transportation hub will b...Jump to post
Finally! hadn't HU been trying to plan this route years ago? Well I'm glad to see it finally materialize. Good luck to them and hopefully we can see more than a 3 weekly service. Asian airlines are starting to target Mexico and Latin America for destinations. I was reading not too long ago that Chi...Jump to post
Hainan Airlines plans to operate a 3x week flight, linking the chinese capital (Beijing) with Tijuana and Mexico City.

It seems to me that you can´t compare, at least as of today, Córdoba and Cali with Monterrey and Guadalajara. Besides being almost three times larger and being the second and third most important cities in Mexico , the last two cities have been growing in almost all sectors steadily for over a decad...Jump to post
MEX can handle multiple large planes. Of course it can. It can be a hellish experience as a passenger. But again, there has been up to 2 A380s at the same time, a situation that isn´t as rare as it might look. Many have said it before, A380s could cover at least EZE and MEX. But again, they seem to ...Jump to post
I believe that the issue Alitalia has with MEX has something to do with Aeroméxico and Delta´s JV and with MEX being a hot and high airport (someone said in another aviation forum that only 70% of the seats are bookable on the return flight from MEX)...Besides, there are some rumors on AM launching ...Jump to post
I know they fly the 787-8 within the Americas from Bogotá to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, Lima, Santiago, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires. Also to some domestic destinations. So I suppose the A333 will operate those routes to free some 787 to increase Madrid and start Munich. I´ve heard the...Jump to post
Well, not Boeing/Airbus, but McDonnell Douglas completed seven DC-10-15, based on the DC-10-10, by request of Mexicana and Aeroméxico, for their MEX-elsewhere hot and high operations. Aeroméxico operated them with some 260 seats on some regional and transatlantic routes (mostly via MIA) but Mexicana...Jump to post

Last week they retired the 744 from the LHR-MEX route... They introduced the B789 and some say it might send the A351 when ready. Not because of the retirement per se, but there’s some relation, isn’t it?
All LHR-Latin America routes are now operated with the 772, 77E, 77W and the 789.
First of all...EK is in no alliance. So what does it matter what alliance SK, SU or AM are in? Demand? Sure! (At least from BCN.) But profitable demand? That's a totallly different thing... AM tried BCN and dumped it. And no way would Spain give EK rights to MEX. SVO is out of the way and Russian e...Jump to post
And what about BCN or even SVO or a Scandinavian city? I mean, I'm no expert. But I'm sure there's some demand between Mexico and those regions, specially since EK could create some agreements with Skyteam's Aeroméxico and/or Aeroflot or Star Alliance's SAS... As I said, I'm no expert. But feedback ...Jump to post

I think that they (Aeromexico, that is) will launch MEX-ICN (don´t know if it will be via TIJ) this 2017 with a Boeing 787-8. Hainan´s PEK-MEX has been planned since 2012, and in 2014 Cathay Pacific *expressed* some interest on a HKG-XXX-MEX route when it launched it´s cargo flights to GDL and MEX. ...Jump to post
I know MEX-Switzerland market is fairly well covered, sadly I don´t have statistics, but there was a rumor not so long ago that stated that EK was planning to launch DXB-ZHR/GVA-MEX using 77W.

As a Mexican, I also agree that AM or KE would begin MEX-ICN service, both founder members of SkyTeam. AM with its 787-8 and KE... 747-8 or at least A330-300 IMO Unfortunately, I also heard that the NH service will be delayed. Remember that MEX is a saturated hub. This note explains all... http://w...Jump to post
AM or KE should really start MEX-ICN. I'm sure there's a ton of auto industry traffic there. AM has, in fact, applied for MEX-MTY-ICN-MEX route using 787-8.

Hello, hope you are all doing well.

Yes, that's my thought on it too. The Bay is to frail to be intervened, and environmentalists are an issue. A logical one, though.
