Mayor Ray Nagin in Mexico City this week

by The Times-Picayune Thursday July 09, 2009, 6:59 PM


New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has spent the past several days in Mexico City on a trip designed to dovetail with the inaugural direct flight Tuesday by AeroMexico from New Orleans to the Mexican capital, his press office announced.
Courtesy of City HallMayor Ray Nagin meets this week with American Chamber of Commerce board members in Mexico City over a traditional lunch.

The Nagin administration did not mention the mayor's latest international travels until Thursday evening, when the press office issued an electronic dispatch titled, "Community News for July 9, 2009." The junket follows Nagin's 10-day economic development excursion last month to China and Australia.
It was not immediately clear who paid for the trip, when exactly Nagin left or when he would return. Communications Director Ceeon Quiett did not immediately respond to questions.
Photos provided with the news release show Regional Transit Authority Chairman Cesar Burgos, and state Reps. Karen Carter Peterson and Juan Lafonta, both New Orleans Democrats, attending at least one event with the mayor. A complete list of who accompanied Nagin was not provided.
According to the news release, Nagin delivered the keynote address at a Wednesday breakfast for more than 200 travel agents and travel writers hosted by the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau.
"Mayor Nagin talked about New Orleans as a one-of-a-kind travel destination, highlighting the city's offerings, including quality restaurants, hotels, entertainment and sports and family events," according to the release.
The "New Orleans delegation" also visited with Mexico Ambassador Carlos Rico, whose focus is U.S.-Mexico affairs, "to discuss potential partnerships between the two countries," the release states. Also on the agenda was a meeting with officials from the American Chamber of Commerce and the Mexican Embassy, and visit to the American Embassy.

What the evil virus did to AeroMexico


AeroMéxico postpones the purchase of six airplanes that had predicted from here to 2010, for thus cushion the red numbers that the influenza left him. This, in spite of the fact that achieved a capitalization for 500 mdp, and agreements of savings with pilots, sobrecargos and personnel of land. And the fact is that the traffic of passengers of the airline fell 23 and 26% in May and June, and they expect that in July be 15% underneath. Not does not do only think to grow. The business that heads José Luis Barraza anticipates to reduce its fleet in 10 and even 14 airplanes, from here in order to the year -depending on as itself behavior the clientele of trips. In this manner, its fleet would patrol the 70 airships. AeroMéxico besides arranged the dismissal of 150 pilots and 290 sobrecargos unionized and canceled its plan of expansion in six national destinies and five international as Chetumal, Huatulco, Lazarus Purple and San José California, Medellín, San Francisco-The Tips. Besides that closed its stations of China, Rome, Albuquerque and Toluca.

The Eagle Knight



www.aeromexico.com
For the ancient cultures of Mexico wings, or the human ability to fly, have three truly significant forms of expression: the Man-God Quetzalcóatl has feathers and appears impetuous and startled, as if he had just landed; there is also the ritual ceremony of the Voladores de Papantla (Fliers of Papantla) which is equally fascinating for those who perform the ritual and those who watch it since it offers a practical and obvious solution to the human desire to ride the wind; and finally the Aztecs had a military organization that privileged the Eagle Knights (Caballeros Águilas), warriors who were chosen because they had proved their courage, fearlessness and heroism in battle. For major public events, as well as for ritual sacrifices, the Aztecs organized spectacular ceremonies that included a form of military parade that featured the dance of the Eagle Knights who leapt as if they were birds ready to take flight. These were young men, dressed in coats of feathers, that carried spears, shields and covered their faces with masks made in the shape of an eagle’s head. Since the Eagle Knight is deeply rooted in our cultural heritage it was proudly chosen to be the emblem of AeroMéxico. With the same strength as the warrior we fight everyday to be a leading and socially responsible company that offers the kind of service our customers deserve.


Current Eagle Warrior on AeroMexico's Fleet...

^ Hey thanks for sharing Playa, but why would you a bus take you. My understanding was that AM flights operate from T2.

Its because EMB's 145 seldomly get a contact position, they almost always are parked at remote ones... So, in the previous pic, if you follow closely, you'll see a bunch o buses parked under the terminal... Well, that's Gate 75F, where boarding for remote positions is reached, therefore the buses that take you to the planes...

Oh good you actually understood my 1st grade grammar... I tend to do that when I type quickly and don't follow up on what I wrote. Anyhow, so about the remote positions are designed strickly for E145's, right? So everything else from an E190 and above gets a gate regartdless of the destination. Which I think it would be just horrific to pay for premier to an International destination on a 777 and have to be taken to a remote site. For crying outloud hopefully not, this is definetely not MX...

So do you happened to have pix of the interior of these E145. One more thing these do have toilets, eh?

No, that's not the rule... Mostly, the EMB-145's are confined to remote, but sometimes, very seldom, they get a jetway... If you've flown on those, you'll know how inconvenient is to reach the jetway given the size of the plane...

However, also EMB-190's are sometimes parked at remotes... But they're more likely to be on contact ones...

No, I've never pictured the inside... But they're quite simple... One single-seat row at the left, and one double-seat row at the right...

145's usually fly routes of 1 hr or less, but sometimes, they are sent for longer routes, which can turn out to be quite boring, due to the lack of TV or any music other than your iPod...

And yes, these do have toilets...

Nice pix, so is that what Am offers from Tij to Mex T2 a E145. I could have swear they offered 737 on that route, am I missing something?

Also do these E145 have Clase Premiere in them if so there most likely to be 1+1. Since you've mentioned above that the configuration was set up as 2+1.

NO WAY...

It's a 3, 30 hrs flight...

The TIJ-MEX route is one of the busiest in Mexico... All routes are operated with 737 and above... Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays, some of the flights are operated under 777 or 767's...

When AM still had the 757, they used it also...

No, they do not... They are single-cabin...





* And maybe yeah, you're missing something... In any of the previous px i was to/from TIJ... I was doing other flights...

Those 757's were nice... I flew on one in 2007 for the last time prior to AM retiring them from the fleet...

But AM's 757 fleet was aging... From the 80's i believe...

I dont think they will re-insert them... 737-800's are almost the same & more efficient... Those replaced the 757 fleet...
