Hmmm... AFAIK, the only Mexican airlines flying to Europe are
Aeromexico and Mexicana - Aeromexico flies only to Madrid and Paris,
I don't know where mexicana directly flies to (its page lists the
flights of the partner airlines)

Yes, they have many partner airlines... Most of Europe is only two
hops away, and on a single major alliance.

Ummm... Somebody has? Anyway, I doubt we would get a _large_ discount,
