The loads on IAH are meh and the loads on ORD so far have been terrible. For some reason there's way more demand for CUN right now (probably because of the huge amount of excess hotel capacity causing crazy deals - one of my friend bought 4 day 5 night package at an all inclusive on the coast south of the hotel zone for like $850/person including air for double occupancy (air is on AA one way and F9 the other) for CHI-CUN.
I'm guessing those amazing deals just aren't out there for CZM hotels.
More puzzling however, is the slow pickup of tourism from the midwest to PVR and SJD and they had both started to get really popular with midwesterners who were looking for something more sophisticated than Cancun but the loads there have been kind of Meh as well. Not great, but not terrible - (like 60-70% on mid-size narrowbodies) on UA from ORD. If they know CUN is open surely they know PVR and SJD are open (and in fact are lower "warning zones" for COVID within Mexico). UA also began Sat only ORD-ZIH this weekend on the A319 and it actually booked decently. It helps that they fly IAH-ZIH on an E-175 daily.
