I notice that Aeromar is beginning to show up on some of the consolidator sites like Expedia paired with Continental/United in itineraries out of Chicago.

They are now only paired with flights landing in Mexico City for the hop to Zihuatanejo.

There continue to be rumors that Mexicana will resume service with a much smaller footprint and marketshare but that Chicago will be included in the mix. I am waiting to see how that plays out. As it stands now, fares from Chicago are much higher now than they have been in awhile. That really hurts the Chicago-Milwaukee-Madison market to Zihuatanejo.

$431 INCLUDING taxes from MSP to ZIH nonstop rt. on Sun Country. Nice price for the times.

What times - dates and schedule? That is a nice price. Last year I paid $325 for November 2010 and $425 for February 2011 (February was a later booking because my original $306 with Mexicana was gone with the bankruptcy). These are O'Hare flights. I think O'Hare will not see prices like that again for awhile. But I hope I am wrong.

Was that nonstop or a stopover in Dallas?

Are you asking me or Rogelio?

My November change was in Dallas (American, easy). The February change was in Houston (Continental, the usual pain in the a$$ we call Houston).

American tends not to be a good connection for ORD to ZIH but for some reason, they had a nice flight at that time.

You. For some reason I thought American had a nonstop from ORD, taking the slack up from Mexicana?

No. Right now there are no non-stops from O'Hare. And generally, American times are really bad, generally involving an overnight in LA. For some reason, they had these flights on shoulder season that were reasonable and good times. Only Saturday to Saturday.

GREAT! Now with this & Interjet we will actually have some competition.
