Word''s going around that AWA will be starting service to Cancun on June 1st or 2nd...No press release as of yet...and it''s not loaded into the system either (yet)...Dont know what they would fly the route with..it would be a nice addition.

Depending on the routing, overwater equipped a/c are not necessary. Alaska has been serving CUN for just about a year without having overwater equipped a/c.
It does require extra flight time and fuel.
Non-overwater routing from PHX (or LAX for AS) requires a dip around the southern edge of the Gulf of Mexico (the Gulf of Campeche portion) and then across the Yucatan.

Hey MGA, long time no see, I used to chat with you on the Alt.rec.aviation.airlines board, I took early retirement in exchange for lifetime non-rev status on HP...
Got one of them jobs that pays...what a concept!
Assume you mean rec.travel.air--I still check out the idiots and occasional intelligent poster over there from time to time.
You'll like this: There was a guy on there the other day whining about the HORRIBLE HP experience he had. Seemed his biggest complaint was that at LAX he "almost missed his flight" because they had the NERVE to change his departure gate from 13 to 9.
If you know T-1 at LAX (I'm sure you do), you'll realize that gates 9, 11, and 13 are all in the same departure area and are separated by, what, 30 or 40 feet?
