Which aircraft will replace KLM's 747-400 on AMS-MEX route?

Fri Nov 16, 2018 6:20 am

Five years ago, the European long haul routes to MEX were mainly with 747-400, except IB and LH's MUC-MEX route that are flown by A340-600 (the latter now flies with the A350), and AZ with 777.
However, the times are changing and:
LH FRA-MEX 747-400 -> 747-8 (June 2013)
AF CDG-MEX 747-400 -> A380 (January 2016)
BA LHR-MEX 747-400 -> 787-9 (November 2017)
KLM still flies with the Queen of the Skies on AMS-MEX route, but which aircraft will replace it?
787-9? A350?
Or what do you think?

Most likely the 777-300.

Not sure, the 77W has poor hot and high performance due to its heavily loaded wing. 789 will probably do better.

Does MEX usually get a full pax or a combi? Or a combination of both?

Does KLM codeshare with AeroMexico?
They could share cargo/passenger capacity and optimize it.
