Aeromexico will fly 737s with 12 seats for first-class passengers and 120 coach seats. Aeromexico already operates service from the airport to Guadalajara four times a week.

Also, Japan Airlines last week started flights on 787 Dreamliners from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Kansai International Airport (KIX) in Osaka, Japan, a route it had suspended eight years ago.

The daily nonstop service to Osaka leaves Los Angeles at 11:30 a.m.; a return flight from Osaka leaves at 3:30 p.m.

The Dreamliner has 186 seats, including 42 in business class.
