Mexico to Honolulu nonstop? Let me guess... either with a B767, B777, or B787.

And here's my image from SFO from a few days ago:

Most likely it would be a 767 then as more 787's arrive they might be an upgrade.

BTW, the old AM Livery is so yesterday... Good catch though!

Here's a view of AeroMexico's ever changing logo design throughout the years.

I know! If I went in a bit earlier (around noontime, but I would not be able to eat), I would've also seen AM's B738 take off for Guadalajara. That one was bound for Mexico City, which is interesting since it means there are quite a lot more passengers bound for Guadalajara than MEX from SF...

Interesting about the Guadalajara passengers indeed...I would had thought the quite opposite honestly. So then It's an AM 738 "Contigo" 1 class configuration flight.

See attached Contigo service map:

Ah, so that's Aeromexico Contigo, the "leisure" flights by Aeromexico. It uses the same aircraft as Aeromexico, but, I think the main difference would be those B738s (if not also B73Gs) are operated as mono-class (all-Y seating). It's interesting that a lot of flights from SFO are bound, not just for Guadalajara, but also to Leon and Morelia, both of which not served from LAX (those are instead served by UA and Volaris)...

Well, since this thread has been dead for several months, I will place this here

VivaAerobus receives first of 52 A320s on order

Published Thursday, May 28, 2015
México City, May 14, 2015.- Ultra-low-cost carrier VivaAerobus has taken delivery of its first new A320 following the aircraft handover at the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse. The A320 is the first to be delivered from an order placed in 2013 for 52 aircraft (12 A320ceo and 40 A320neo), which is the largest single deal by a Mexican customer. VivaAerobus already operates six leased A320s and will become an all Airbus operator as it completes its fleet transition from 737-300s by early 2016.

Including the first A320, all VivaAerobus’ A320ceo are powered by IAE engines. The A320neo will be powered by Pratt and Whitney engines. The aircraft will be deployed on the airline’s domestic network and international routes to the United States.

"Our new fleet of A320s will enable VivaAerobus to continue enhancing our operational efficiencies by lowering our costs and fares for our passengers, while offering a significant upgrade with the A320 cabin comfort," said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of VivaAerobus. "We couldn’t be more pleased to integrate this new aircraft into our growing Airbus fleet and we look forward to expanding our network and allowing even more passengers to fly for the very first time."

"We are proud that VivaAerobus has chosen the market-leading A320 Family to renew its fleet and expand its network, taking a further step to becoming an all Airbus operator," said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "The A320’s unparalleled reliability, best-in-class passenger comfort and unbeatable fuel efficiency complements VivaAerobus’ business model and we are eager to see their success evolve even more with the NEO in the years to come."

VivaAerobus, jointly owned by IAMSA, Mexico’s largest bus company, and Irelandia, a global low-cost-carrier airline developer group, has based its fleet renewal strategy on the A320 Family. The A320’s unmatched operating economics and reliability will play a key role as the airline meets the growing demand for cost-efficient air travel in Mexico.

The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with almost 11,700 orders to date and over 6,500 aircraft delivered to 400 customers and operators worldwide. The newest member of the A320 Family, the A320neo, incorporates many innovations including latest generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices, which together deliver more than 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020. With nearly 3,800 orders received from 71 customers since its launch in 2010, the A320neo Family has captured almost 60 percent share of the market.

To date, the A320neo program has 345 firm orders from six customers in Latin America. With more than 950 aircraft sold and a backlog of nearly 500, more than 550 Airbus aircraft are in operation throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. In the last 10 years, Airbus has tripled its in-service fleet, while delivering more than 60 percent of all aircraft operating in the region.


I find this really cool since it's actually a low cost airline, i've traveled with them several times and their fleet felt really old, but still safe.

SUPERJET INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL 10 SSJ100 FOR INTERJET

Venice (Italy) – March 2, 2015

SuperJet International – joint venture between Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi and Sukhoi Holding – is pleased to announce that the Mexican airline Interjet confirmed the option for additional 10 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.

In 2011 Interjet originally ordered 15 SSJ100 and 5 options. The 5 options became firm in July 2012 at Farnborough Air Show. In November 2012, during ALTA Leaders Forum in Panama, Interjet announced the addition of 10 options which have been executed today leading the total firm order to 30 aircraft.

The value of the new option batch is 350 million US Dollars.

“This order confirms the solid relationship we have been able to build up with our Customer but also the sound reliability of our product which is definitely one of the main drivers in Interjet choice. The SSJ100 is a super optimized aircraft, equipped with advanced technology and offering attractive cash operating costs. We are sure that customers will continue looking at the SSJ100 as a main player in the regional market – states Nazario Cauceglia, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International.

Twelve SSJ100 are currently in service with Interjet confirming the excellent operations and a dispatch reliability over the 99%. The thirteenth SSJ100 has been already delivered and will join the Interjet fleet soon.

According to the airline’s operational reliability report, to date the 12 Interjet SSJ100 have completed over 21.000 flight hours and 20.000 flight cycles starting from the Entry into Service in September 18, 2013. The SSJ100 are operating from Mexico City to various Mexican destinations and starting from October 2014 to the Unites States.

“We are delighted to add 10 aircraft to our SSJ100 fleet. The Superjet 100 is a really good product, we are very satisfied of its superior performance and the reduced operating costs. The SSJ100 was the right choice for the Interjet fleet development, it is perfectly suitable for domestic mid-density routes as well as several short-haul international ones” states Jose Luis Garza, Chief Executive Officer of Interjet.

Along with the order and according to a SuperCare Agreement applied to the entire Interjet SSJ100 fleet, SuperJet International will provide the airline with a full assistance on the after-sales support as well as training services.

As of today SJI, which is also the SSJ100 worldwide training provider, has trained 130 Interjet pilots and 168 mechanics.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100, designed and produced by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, in partnership with Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi, incorporates the most modern Western systems technology and is powered by two PowerJet SaM146 engines.


I know these aren't really news, but since nobody has posted this, I think it's fine to post about how the airlines have been expanding their fleet this year.

Volaris Integrates Two Airbus A321s into Fleet

05/22/2015
- With seating for 220 passengers, the Airbus A321 provides 23% more capacity than the A320, to better service high density routes
- Volaris is the first airline to operate this class of aircraft in Mexico
MEXICO CITY, May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Volaris (NYSE: VLRS and BMV: VOLAR), the ultra low cost (seriously? i don't consider it as "ultra low cost") Mexican airline with the most extensive route network servicing Mexico and the US, announced the arrival of a second Airbus A321 and with it, completed the first leasing agreements for two aircrafts in this class. This particular Airbus Family model provides seating for 220 passengers, which represents a 23% increase in capacity for travel. Compared to A320s, Airbus A321s are optimal for servicing routes with higher demand and occupancy.

The Airbus A321 fuselage is 44.5 m long and has an extended operation range of up to 3,000nm with a maximum passenger load. Airbus A321s provide the lowest fuel consumption per seat and come equipped with sharklets – wing-tip devices that help reduce fuel burn as a result of improved aerodynamics.

"This is a significant step for our airline's growth", said Volaris CEO, Enrique Beltranena. "With increased capacity, it becomes a clear solution to our problem of greater demand from passengers seeking better travel experiences. Volaris constantly seeks to transport more passengers safely, on board our modern fleet to any of our 38 domestic and 22 international destinations."

Beltranena added, "We are an ultra low cost airline, which is why the A321 perfectly adapts into our business model, helping us reduce unit costs and enabling us to provide clean and clear fares to all our Customers, so more people can travel well." The new A321s will start commercial operations in June with flights servicing the Mexico City-Cancun route.

The new A321, registration number XA-VLH arrived in Mexico City International Airport on April 23, and became the first in its class in Mexico. The second one, registration number XA-VLJ, was delivered yesterday, at Airbus' facilities in Hamburg, to Volaris CEO Enrique Beltranena and before a group of the French manufacturer's representatives.

Beltranena added, "It is an honor to share this moment with Airbus. From the beginning, they have been a key business partner for us, not only as witnesses to our growth, but also playing a very important role in the efficient use of all our aircraft."

"The A321 is instrumental in bringing increased capacity on Volaris' most popular routes, and it allows the airline to benefit from the lowest cost per seat of any single aisle aircraft," said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "We are pleased that the A321 will help Volaris efficiently address growing demand for cost-effective air travel in Mexico while benefitting from the unmatched comfort, operating economics and fuel-efficiency of the benchmark A320 Family."

The arrival and incorporation of two A321s signals a great milestone for Volaris, now totaling 53 aircraft in its modern fleet, and is an unprecedented achievement for national aviation. In 2016 Volaris is expecting the delivery of another 3 aircraft in this category. With this measure, Volaris affirms their solid commitment to Customers and to Mexico's development.

Aerolínea TAR elevará tráfico a 300,000 pasajeros este añoEn marzo, la aerolínea trasladó a más de 17,000 pasajeros de destinos nacionales.

Quote:
TAR Tráfico De Pasajeros Empresas El gerente comercial de TAR estimó que en 2016 ya tendrán definido el proyecto del centro de mantenimiento.

La aerolínea Transportes Aéreos Regionales (TAR) proyecta una afluencia total de alrededor de 300,000 pasajeros al cierre del 2015, debido al fortalecimiento de sus operaciones hacia la segunda mitad del año, declaró José Gil Calzadías Carvajal, gerente comercial de la empresa.

Hacia agosto o septiembre próximos, mencionó, la compañía tendrá en operación tres aeronaves adicionales, las cuales permitirán abrir entre ocho y 10 rutas nuevas.

TAR invirtió aproximadamente 24 millones de dólares en la adquisición de los nuevos aviones. Actualmente, la flotilla de la empresa mexicana está compuesta por tres jets Embraer ERJ145, con capacidad de 50 asientos, con los cuales cubre 12 destinos a nivel nacional.

“Esperemos que para agosto ya podamos tener las seis aeronaves en operación así como los destinos nuevos en el transcurso de agosto y septiembre. La idea es que en octubre ya estemos consolidados con esas naves”, expuso Calzadías Carvajal.

Desde el aeropuerto de Querétaro, TAR cubre las rutas a Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco y Zihuatanejo.

“Con los aviones nuevos estaríamos abriendo entre ocho y 10 rutas. Todavía no se tiene claro cómo estarán hiladas. Ahora son tres naves y 12 destinos, y el objetivo es fortalecer algunas de las frecuencias”, comentó.

Avances

El gerente comercial de TAR destacó que, en su primer año de operación, la aerolínea ha tenido buenos resultados. Recientemente, en marzo pasado, registró 17,500 pasajeros.

Entre las acciones consideradas por la firma hacia el mediano plazo, detalló, está un proyecto de rutas para la zona del sureste del país, así como un análisis para la instalación de un centro de mantenimiento aéreo en Querétaro.

Respecto del centro de mantenimiento, Calzadías Carvajal afirmó que el proyecto está bajo análisis, por lo que se podría definir más claramente hacia el 2016.
The new small airline has bought 3 new Embraer ERJ145 (right now they only have 3, so now they have double ) and this will allow them to open 8-10 new national routes
