Hello, let me share one more trip report to you. It is from Tijuana to Mexico. Tijuana Airport in late 2015 will be the first binational airport in the world, you will have a bridge connecting it with the United States, so if you travel to Tijuana, upon disembarking the plane you can cross the border from the airport.

I had to fly from Tijuana to Mexico and select AeroMexico to do. I chose the first flight out in the morning (8:00 am, the flight takes 3:30 hours). Arrive at the airport and made quick check in. After pass the security point, I went to Salon Premier AeroMexico, the Salon is not very spacious, but has enough capacity to accommodate 80 people, Aeromexico operates five daily flights to Mexico City, Guadalajara 2 flights, 1 flight daily to Hermosillo / Monterrey / Ciudad Juarez / Durango / Leon and the flight to Shanghai which operates 3 times a week from Tijuana and is the only direct flight from Latin America to China.

The Salon offers a wide selection of liquors (Mexican wines, tequila, rum, vodka, beers, juices, strongbow, sodas, etc …). In the morning yogurt, pastries, fruit salads and muesli were offered. There was also an espresso machine.

Half an hour before my flight I went to the boarding gate.

We took off on time

During takeoff (the airport is next to the border of USA) the plane flies over the boundary of Mexico and you can see San Diego, San Ysidro and Imperial Beach Chulavista.

The entertainment system AeroMexico is very good in this plane, has many movies, TV series and music.

They offered drinks and biscuits

During the flight we flew over the Gulf of California.

Good service for a domestic flight entertainment system makes the difference vs other airlines. The Salon Premier Aeromexico Tijuana is also a plus.

    Thanks for sharing this report with us.
    You were lucky to have this brand new SKYinterior aircraft ! It looks very nice for a short flight. A snack and a drink is ok for such a flight and during my 3 experiences with AM I had also a good crew.
    Great views through the window !

    Thanks for sharing this report with us.

    The new AM products look very competitive and really show an improvement over what is offered across the border. I can't remember the last time I saw full IFE on a B737 in Y in the US (granted I have flown there a lot recently).

    I thought AM offered more extensive in-flight services on domestic flights, or am I wrong? I would have expected more from AM on a flight of this length.

    Really nice shots of the scimitar winglets, unfortunately these have never made it to Asia yet :(
