Options to get to Mexico city?

by NaturalPace ⌂ @, Nanaimo, Monday, June 29, 2020, 11:14 (9 days ago)

We have a flight out of Mexico City on the 17th of July with Aeromexico to Vancouver. They cancelled the Zihua portion. Anyone else in this same predicament that might want to ride share? or have ideas?? We thought we would look at the busses...or maybe blahblah car? I'm upset with Aeromexico because they will not credit us with the portion that they cancelled, just offered us another flight on August 1st. (and they admitted the same thing might happen..) Please, I am not looking for opinions on how we SHOULD have left earlier..thank you.B-)

Oh man!!!!! We were going to contact you today and offer you a ride to the airport-this airport.

The first class buses are nice and you'll get there without being stressed.

Maybe the gods are telling you that you shouldn't leave.....

We were told Aeromexico is not flying to/from ZIH for all July, possibly longer. We're booked on an Interjet flight ZIH to MEX tomorrow. Stay tuned...

Don't know if this will affect your travels, but Air Canada is cutting a bunch of domestic routes. And both Westjet & AC are no longer distancing and will pack the planes full.

AeroMexico just announced today they are going into Chapter 11 restructuring. They will still be flying but likely cutting down on flights and I would not expect refunds.

I found this...so hopefully all of us who have booked tickets will be okay. I would hate to bail on them when they are down!

I thought that if you use a credit card then even if the airline goes bankrupt your credit card company will refund you money. The card companies normal hold back payments to an airline with quite large hold-backs for airlines in weak/poor financial condition.

When Mexicana went under years ago, I had booked using their air miles with their BA card -I got the money back I had paid for the r/t tickets but was out enough air miles for 3 r/t tickets for 2.
