  • Wheelchair assistance

    Is it appropriate to tip the people who provide wheelchair assistance to and from gates at this airport? If so, how much is a suitable tip?


    Yes, Mexico is a country where tipping is pretty much necessary. I would tip 3-5 USD or 50-100 Mexican Pesos depending on how much time they spend pushing you.


  • question
    Jan 2, 2015
    I will be flying Aeromexico AM630 from MEX to LAX while a friend will be on LAN621 to Santiago. Will I be able to use the aerotrain in Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 1 to send my friend off after immigrations? I've been hearing mixed information about using the aerotrain. Some say its possible and some say not.


    Yes, some people say they ask to see your ticket to board the aerotrain. I believe this is to keep panhandlers and hustlers off the train. Since you are a legitimate traveler you should be ok.


    So i'd be able to board the aerotrain from terminal 2 to terminal 1 and back? I'd be departing from terminal 2 but looking at sending my friend off at terminal 1


  • VIP Lounge near Southwest Airlines
    Nov 18, 2015
    I believe that Southwest Airlines is still identified as AirTran on maps of the airport in Mexico City. Does anyone know whether either of the 3 VIP lounges (Ground Lounge Elite and the 2 Aeromexico Salon Premier) are near to area where international Southwest flight would depart? Thank you so much to anyone who is familiar enough with this airport to know1


    The Ground Lounge Elite isn't too far away it appears. The Aeromexico lounges are in a completely different terminal.


  • Location of Immigration Office

    I am departing from Terminal 2. However, I came into Mexico via car and apparently did not compete the entry process--I paid the entry fee, but did not get my passport stamped nor the travel form signed Any thoughts on what I can do?
