Re: Interjet Discussion and News thread

If you say so... they've been delayed in TIJ, PVR and CUN for hours with mx problems in the last 3 months. In the meantime, Interjet has been sued by Chicago, Las Vegas and Houston airport for 3.5 million dollars. https://www.elnorte.com/aplicacioneslibre/preacceso/articulo/default.aspx?__rval=1&am...

Re: Updated: Interjet gets new investors, seek to grow

Meanwhile, back in the real world, legal proceedings have started by the employees unions of Interjet against the company over the non-payment to its crews.

Other routes from MTY,CUN and even MID opened, generally speaking all these eventually see the aircraft co...
