Yes, using a regional carrier.

Actually, when AeroMexico first began service on December 15, 2006, they used Boeing 737 aircraft, but the flight only operated 4 times per week. I remember flying into ABIA from Love Field one afternoon and seeing it taxiing to the runway as we were making our way to the gate.

In July of 2007, they increased the service to daily, but went from a Boeing 737 to the Embraer RJ-145, operated for AeroMexico by Aerolitoral.

They pulled out completely in June of 2008.

Maybe Volaris, Interjet or AeroMéxico will enter the market. Southwest should start Mexico City service....

May 2014 Passenger and Cargo report

Looks like we're steadily on our way to getting minimum 1,000,000 passengers/month, especially with the terminal expansion projects providing additional capacity. It'll be interesting to see the numbers for June-August because they tend to be pretty solid.

BA is still holding strong at an ~80% passenger load factor.

I watched both of these birds get airborne as they made a turn over SW Austin the other afternoon to head north. They were really lumbering along and seemed to gain altitude slowly. I guess maybe they were being held at a certain height by air traffic or something. One thing is for sure, POTUS does not travel light. I wonder how many vehicles and other items were packed in those planes. Not to bash the President, but it seems to me that it must just cost an outrageous amount of money to move him around from place to place. Couldn't it be done more simply without risking his safety?

I think I've seen these types of planes taking off in San Antonio several times, and they always look that way. They have a very shallow, slow climb. Very impressive to look at with how big they are and how slow they appear to be moving. When they turn, it looks like they are about to stall right out of the air.

They appear slow because they are slow. Just about all "short takeoff and landing" planes are that way.
C-17 Globemaster III is designed to operate from runways as short as 3,500 ft (1,064 m) and as narrow as 90 ft (27 m). In addition, the C-17 can operate from unpaved, unimproved runways (although with greater chance of damage to the aircraft). Minimum speed is 115 knots (132 mph)

For comparison sakes, The max flap speed of a 737-800 jetliner is 250 knots for 1 and 5 setting and the minimum clean flap setting is 210 knots.

Environmental conditions; altitude, temperature, wind speed and direction, and weight of the aircraft; can effect both landing speed and distance.
