Flight to Mexico City

We had a great flight from San Francisco to Mexico City on our way to Yucatan to see the Maya ruins and stay at a wonderful old mansion in Merida plus two old haciendas.

Seats 3A and B
Our flight to CDMX on Aeromexico was very nice both ways. We traveled in Clase Premier in a new Boeing 737 800 which had nice leather seats and Virgin America style lighting. The flight was only 41/2 hours to MEX and was very comfortable with nice hot food and excellent Mexican Wines from the Guadalupe Valley in Baja. 

The Crowd at Customs
We did have to get through customs before we could drive through the city to get to the St Regis. Customs was packed. It seemed that quite a few big international planes arrived at around the same time we did. It looked bad but it wasn't too brutal and it took us about a half an hour to pick up our bags and meet our driver. Next stop is St Regis Mexico City. 

Interesting point to note, Mexico City used to be known by the letters DF (Distrito Federal) but now it's known as CDMX (Ciudad de Mexico) which stands for the restructuring of the City Government.

It was great to get to CDMX on Aeromexico. 

Highly recommended airline to Mexico!
