I imagine that in for them to be able to compete in the Mexican market, they would need to turn the short haul flights into LLC-style flights (To compete with Volaris, Interjet, Viva and Aeroméxico) but have full service in long haul ones with a hard product that can compete with all the legacy carriers flying into Mexico. I don't think it's impossible, but it wouldn't be easy.

The Mexican domestic market is saturated with four dominate airlines. From what I understand they have a huge debt which needs to be paid before flying again: labor, airports, catering... They are a good example of how management can run a good airline into the ground.
