Absolute tragedy. Up until the late 90s, the subway worked flawlessly. Then, since 1997, the mayor is democratically elected rather than designated by the president. Before this, the subway was pretty much built (10 out of 12 exisiting lines), operated and subsidized with federal funds. That is not ...Jump to post
Not yet, but plan to. I'm only somewhat familiar with Bitcoin, so I can't speak for the others. As of today, I see it as on track of becoming a legitimate store of value. Say, I'd be willing to put in some small amount of money that would otherwise go to a gold-backed ETF and forget about it for a w...Jump to post
Did the South Americans of the cold war have a dominance and submission mentality which respected only exploitive employers? Had South American capitalism free and equal chances or was it the Indian type? Any other factors? As far as the economic powers-that-be were concerned, back in those years, ...Jump to post
I think it's a more imperfect form of capitalism. Weak state and rule of law which leads to crony capitalism and all sorts of economic distortions. Even in the somewhat rare cases of well meaning political and economic agendas, the elites are in general much more poorly prepared and corrupt, than sa...Jump to post
AM's plan of action with it's Chapter 11 reorganization = become a leaner more agile airline with a cost structure that closely competes with Mexican LCC's on the domestic market and best cost structure than any U.S. or Latin American carrier for the international front. https://aeromexico.com/cms/...Jump to post
I'd say Reforma Avenue meets your criteria. There's a Marriot in a pretty centric location.
Maybe this one.

I'm all in with doing away with DST. Latitude 19 N here. We have 11 to 12 hours daylight year round. Not needed. Standard time gives us sunrise at 6AM to 7AM, sunset at 6PM to 7PM depending on the time of the year. I find it healthier to wake up and go to bed "earlier". I understand border...Jump to post
EZE-LIM-MEX-LAX was active for quite some years. I remember AR's 747s being regular visitors at MEX. In 92, we flew LAX-MEX on an AM MD-80. The AR 747 was at TBIT as we were. We departed earlier, and of course, when we arrived in MEX, the 747 had already been there for quite some time. It amazed me....Jump to post
So, for example. Mexico conceded that disputes be judged in US courts, but Canada didn't. So which one is it? Will the international panel be still in force? Canada opened its milk products market, did Mexico? I guess the general question is if rules apply to all three parties or if we are talking a...Jump to post
I'm inclined to think windshear was a contributing factor. I don't think there are many (any?) Doppler radars in mexican airports, let alone in a small airport as DGO. Which begs the question. What is the procedure in such scenarios? I'd think that in the absence of reliable information, erring on t...Jump to post
If tourism, then why not CUN-BZE or PVR-BZE? Mexican tourists, not tourists from Belize. Why would Mexican tourists go to Belize and not to the Mexican Caribbean coast or the Pacific coast? I'd do it. At this point in time, I've been to pretty much every resort in Mexico. I'd go to San Pedro or Amb...Jump to post
Belize Airport is only 40 kms south of Chetumal Airport... for me it makes no sense..but heck more power to Aeromexico if they can make a good Business case. TRB Agreed. Yet, AM does not currently fly to CTM. They chose a rather bold option instead of facing Interjet in the Chetumal market. As an e...Jump to post
What is that Bajio? No such a name of town in the google map. Q It's an agricultural and industrial region. The "Aeropuerto Internacional del Bajío" (BJX) is supposed to serve the whole region.

Poor Mexico. The group of death! Interesting group they’re in. It’s not really inconceivable that Mexico and Sweden both earn a draw against Germany. South Korea is no pushover either. If I’m putting money on it I say Germany gets through, but I wouldn’t be shocked if they didn’t get out that group...Jump to post
Here is the thing, I don't think it has anything to do with the kids, I think it's aimed more at Trump, but with the side benefit of causing another headache for the Donald.

Would it be possible to move forward to a world where oil, commodities and bank reserves are denominated in the proposed ETFs (backed by a basket of currencies)? Not owning the money printing machine would be conducent to what the US President seems to want: reduce trade deficit.Jump to post

Just to clarify, by "degrees" - what do they mean? Their flight school training? If that's the case, it is truly shocking. That's what I was wondering, too. If they claimed to have a degree in something unrelated to flying just to make their resume look better, but their flight school tra...Jump to post
I doubt the connecting market of UA/AA/DL for Mexico-Europe/elsewhere has been significantly affected by the ideology, rhetoric and actions of the current administration.

Chichen Itza airport. (CZA) Half way between MID and CUN. I don´t think it ever received scheduled flights. The new Palenque airport (PQM) airport only gets a couple of Interjet weekly flights.Jump to post
There are serious studies that are showing more and more that if you are born poor, you are very likely to remain poor. More so now than in previous decades. If you are not helped by the state via quality schooling and access to health services you'll remain poor, no matter how bad you want to escap...Jump to post

NAFTA was written by and for big companies. The decision certainly was not taken here and in fact met strong opposition back in the 90s, Mexico was just 'invited' to comply and provide whatever said companies needed.

Trump insists on bullying an economy 18 times smaller, which is your neighbor, whose illegal immigration into the US has drastically been reduced the past 15 years to almost net zero, which poses no ideological or military threat...

Of course! LAP.
Let's not forget LAB. They flew for years MEX-PTY-VVI on 727 (series 100 maybe). Talk about an interesting long haul.

Wasn't Trump much more 'independent' and even somewhat left leaning a short 5 or 6 years ago? He reminds me of Brian Bosworth, "The Boz" (NFL fans growing up in the 80s will remember). Trump, the character, has taken over and he has reached that point where he can't be reasonable any more,...Jump to post
From afar, it seems the UK has always had 'irreconciliable differences' with the EU regarding some key aspects. They seem to want some sort of NAFTA; free trade, freedom of movement for capital, goods and some services, but that's it; no freedom of movement for people, no common currency. That's fin...Jump to post
Man. From the outside, this <i>looks</i> as a mistake in the grand scheme of things, and I say this with the utmost respect for the British people.
