I got the following response from the Mexican government after I wrote to them about this new policy and the costs (loss) of tourism dollars of the seasonal visitors...... Mu husband thinks they will only allow service animals but that is not the way I read it, where they refer to "pets". I'm waiting to hear back from a friend that works at US Airways.......should know more on Mon or Tues. In any event someone needs to get tier story straight:

Dear Wilma Bodrak
What is happening is the application of a statutory provision of the 2007 by the aeronautical Authority consisting of a Circular compulsory which indicates the following: "The combination of live animals in the passenger cabin and passengers should not be allowed, except in the case of dogs Guide and other service animals accompanying a disabled person".
By which the transport of animals must be made according to the guidelines established by the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), and the manual of procedure laid down by each airline, to not be subject to sanction by the aeronautics in each airport authority.
Here you a link to a publication by the international airport of the city of Mexico: http://www.aicm.com.mx/informacionalpasajero/Archivos/NuevaMedidasSeguridad.pdf , where noted that for international flights "Permitted the entry of dogs guide or pets, which must be registered with the airline that travels." For pets the passengers boarding pass must be the indication of "cabin or Pet in Cabin".
It is important to users to document your pet before the airline as part of your baggage for to collect in the band of baggage, if it documented as it loads, it will be sent to the customs of cargo by the customs authority and will be treated as commercial imports and need the intervention of a broker, increasing costs.
In any case you must confirm with the airline used for your trip to Mexico.
Note: For clarification of any doubts in particular, on the issue of mobilization of animals in the cabin, please contact the Local airport's DGAC of entry to Mexican territory or email http://www.sct.gob.mx/...uejas-y-sugerencias/
From the health point of view, there are no restrictions for travel and the entry of dogs and cats and they can enter the country complying with the relevant requirements.
Then I give the SENASICA website http://www.senasica.gob.mx , as well as the direct link http://www.senasica.gob.mx/default.asp?id=602 detailing information for travelers, with the purpose of informing users about our activities.
