Swine flu and the economic crisis a bad combination, but no merger for the present

As Mexico was the source of the outbreak of H1N1 Swine flu, its airlines have been particularly affected by declines in passenger numbers, and outright flight bans (since lifted) imposed by various countries.
AeroMéxico announced in late Jun-09 that it has no immediate plans to merge with rival Mexicana, despite wide speculation that a deal was planned as a way for the airline to survive the catastrophic decline in tourism caused by the economic crisis and the flu outbreak.
AeroMéxico's Chief Executive, Andres Conesa, said that teaming up with Mexicana was always a possibility, but there was nothing concrete for now. He said Mexicana was an option "as well as many others."
He added that the company was open to everything from a merger in Mexico or abroad, to buying a local competitor or selling some assets. The company's board is also thought to be considering accessing debt markets to boost finances, but Conesa declined to comment on this.
Despite current difficulties, AeroMéxico optimistically says it plans to carry 12 million passengers in 2009, about the same as 2008.

The airline would be hoping this will occur, as even though no new main fleet aircraft are scheduled to be delivered this year, 2010 has a raft of new B737NGs set to arrive with AeroMéxico Connect due to receive five new ERJ190s.

AeroMexico: Flight To Mexico, Honduras Ready To Go

Airline Has No Plans To Delay Service Due To Honduran Politics

POSTED: 1:47 pm CDT July 5, 2009
UPDATED: 2:08 pm CDT July 5, 2009
www.wdsu.com



NEW ORLEANS -- Regularly scheduled international flights out of New Orleans are set to resume Tuesday, unaffected by political turmoil in one of the destinations.
AeroMexico said it would launch non-stop service from Armstrong International Airport, with continuing service to San Pedro Sula in Honduras. That country is in a state of political flux after its leader was forced from office in late June.



AeroMexico announced a week ago that it would monitor the situation, but intended to continue service to Honduran airports. It has indicated no change since that announcement.
The flights will be the first regularly scheduled international air routes involving New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
They will leave New Orleans at 6:30 a.m. daily except Saturday, arriving at 9:10 a.m. in Mexico City. The flight will then connect through to San Pedro Sula, arriving in that city at 11:55 a.m.
A return flight will leave San Pedro at 12:45 p.m. each day except Saturday, arriving in Mexico City at 4:10 p.m. That flight will connect through to New Orleans with a 10:30 p.m. arrival.
The San Pedro Sula connection is of particular interest to thousands of New Orleans residents who are of Honduran descent. The city has one of the largest concentrations of Hondurans in the United States.

767's i believe remain in chrome, except for the Skyteam special livery on one of them...

Yes, the bare metal livery looks much better and more professional than that new white livery. The new livery makes it look like a low cost carrier.

My understanding was that all 767 would get new interiors. Including a fresh coat if paint so the entire fleet would be uniformed once and for all. If my memory serves me correctly one of the 777 was schedule for a fresh coat of paint, then I dunno what happened?

As far as the "famous" red calligraphy stripe, it needs to go. In all honestly it make the livery too busy for the eye. You know if they would keep the tail as is but green. Then the red stripe would look more appropiate, right?

Oh come on now.... low cost with the new livery, no not at all. The chrome livery is dated and not classy at all. Like I mentioned above, the red strip can go. Or if they decide to keep it, then make the engines white so you can a sleek look and not make it busy. For example look how the 787 will look, very clean, crisp and modern....
