Aeromexico CEO says first 787s to be received in mid-Aug-2013

Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa said the carrier will receive the first of three expected Boeing 787s this year in mid-Aug-2013 (Arecoa, 06-Jun-2013). Mr Conesa commented on the aircraft, saying, "The arrival of the new 787 I think is an honor not just for Aeromexico but for this country, as Mexicans we will have for the first time the most modern aircraft flying on an airline for our country. When that plane flies to Paris, not even the French flag carrier has it, nor the United Kingdom. We will perhaps be the first to fly the plane at JFK Airport in New York."
