Congratulations On Winning Best Airline In Mexico In The 2010 Gt Tested Awards. How Will Aeromexico Continue To Provide Premium Services To Business And Luxury Travelers?
Being recognized as the Best Airline in Mexico is a proud accomplishment, but it also embodies a hefty responsibility for all Aeromexico employees since it further advocates our everyday efforts to deliver an enhanced, safe, reliable, high-quality product.
Aeromexico is a full-service carrier highly valued by business and luxury travelers. We continue to offer free open bar, meals and other amenities such as pillows, blankets and onboard entertainment systems. Our Boeing fleet is one of the youngest in the industry, with an average operation of less than six years, and our on-time performance is above 90 percent. Investment in our state-of-the-art airports in Mexico City and Monterrey has given us a competitive advantage, and our U.S. route network has grown in 2010 — we now offer more than 450 weekly U.S.–Mexico flights. We recently launched a Web check-in application and redesigned our website, enhancing navigation and the overall user experience. In March, our reservations and check-in platform will migrate to Sabre, improving the customer experience.

Our mandate for 2011 and beyond is for growth based on profit objectives, creating profitable engagements for our stakeholders, employees, business partners and, most important, our customers.
Tell Us About Your Career In Aviation.
I am a seasoned professional with nearly 20 years in the commercial airline industry, beginning in 1992 with Mexicana as a passenger service agent in my hometown, Guadalajara. I held management positions throughout Mexico before moving to the United States as vice president of sales for North America. Last May, I joined Aeromexico as senior vice president of sales for North America. It is a great honor to work for the two largest carriers of Mexico. Moving to Aeromexico has revitalized me and reaffirms my belief that change is a must — it gives you the opportunity to reinvent yourself and to begin new and exciting adventures, every day.
Less than five years ago the world’s first hybrid cruise ship, Hurtigruten Expeditions’ MS Roald Amundsen, set sail for Antarctica in November 2019 with 450 passengers. The battery-hybrid-powered ship, named for the first man to cross the continent and reach the South Pole, was built specifically for voyages in polar waters. Its battery-hybrid power reduces the ship’s consumption and CO2 emissions by 20 percent compared to equally sized ships.

A few months ago, I flew Polaris business class on a United flight from Dulles (IAD) to Paris (CDG). It was only when I got to my hotel in Paris I realized that I didn’t have my iPad or its bag or accessories. Since I had been working on it in the restaurant in the Polaris lounge and then went directly to the gate, I knew I either left it propped up on my table when I packed up or in my business-class seat. But what was the best method to alert the airline about my careless mishap and (hopefully) retrieve it? With spotty data and WiFi, searching for information on my phone was frustrating and slow. Here’s what I learned from the anxiety-inducing experience (and unexpected ending) about what to do if you leave something behind on your flight:
Solmar Hotels & Resorts introduces Grand Solmar Pacific Dunes, previously known as Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The hotel renewed its name and image to highlight the property’s natural attributes while maintaining the quality of its services and experiences.

If fabulous food and beverages are a must-have for any weekend getaway, then look no further than the City of Brotherly Love. Whether your palate has a penchant for vibrant Latin American fare or cozy French cuisine, whether you're an oenophile looking to swirl, sniff and sip your way around the globe or you’d rather sample farm-to-glass cocktails, Philly’s got it all this fall. (With the exception of Bolo, which is a short taxi or Uber ride away and definitely worth the trip, the rest of these spots are all within walking distance of each other.)
United Airlines is in the midst of a major initiative to modernize its fleet over the next several years. After first announcing the plan in 2021, planes fitted with United’s signature interior are finally beginning to appear across the airline’s narrowbody fleet of Boeing and Airbus planes. United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.
From Santoríni to Dubai to New York, some hotels just have that “it” factor that draws visitors far and wide. For some hotels it’s their proximity to popular landmarks and attractions, for others it’s their amenities. But these hotels have something few can claim: a true room with a view.
