I think this is very good news for all parties involved: AM, the Mexican wholesalers, Mexican tourists, Edmonton and Jasper. I will be attentive to see if there are some ads about this in the travel section of next Sunday's newspaper.
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

On a regularly scheduled basis, AM only flies to SAT from MTY through its regional affiliate 5D (don't know if they use Saabs or Embraers) and, according to several random searches I have conducted in the past, fares always appear to be on the high end. MEX-SAT is a market that MX has been very wise to exploit and, to certain extent, dominate (COExpress has only one daily flight, right?).

I wonder if AM should enter the Mexico-SAT market and offer mainline service from MEX, TLC or MTY. Or maybe when the EMB190's arrive, 5D could think about using those planes from TLC or MEX.
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

They are currently using Embraers, but a couple of months ago they were using the Saabs. For the price a round trip is about 3,100 pesos (340 dollars). Which is a little reasonable when a roundtrip flight from MTY-DFW is 450 dollars.

It's not just the destination, it's the journey.

While checking the schedules of www.skyteam.com, I found that AM is now flying one weekly 737-700W between MEX and SAT:

AM 0629 SAT-MEX 09:00 - 11:05 Tuesday
AM 0630 MEX-SAT 16:15 - 18:15 Tuesday

If this is correct, the plane spends too much time parked in SAT. Besides, it is strange that the SAT-MEX flight is earlier than the MEX-SAT one... does anyone know how the plane is repositioned or if it comes from somewhere else? I can't help but think there is a mistake in the SkyTeam site.

Checked that too in SkyTeam's site and you are absolutely right. I was not up to date with respect to this information.

While driving by SAT today, I kept noticing AM 737 parked in a RON spot outside terminal 2 all day today.

Being curious, I went to Orbitz to see if I could book a flight on AM to MEX for Tuesday Jun 6 and returning on Tuesday Jun 13, it is offered at $99RT, with tax was $196. If they keep this up, I will deffinately be switching from MX to AM for all my flights to MEX.
