I understand the fears of flying with an airline that has had some of its aircraft repossessed as well as flying with an airline that has essentially closed up its ability to take reservations as it argues with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) over a required cash deposit to continue selling tickets during a bankruptcy.
For those of you who seeking advice on how to proceed if your travel is impacted by Mexicana’s financial problems, I’ll give you the same advice I gave the people who have e-mailed me seeking advice … contact Cranky Concierge.
