It was bound for Toluca, outside of Mexico City, but never reached its destination.

I don't feel she has passed as she has a very strong soul and is a fighter. I think she has suffered a really bad head injury and is laying beneath a rubble of bushes. They need to send search dogs but someone needs to let the search dogs sniff an item of clothing that she has worn and not washed. Then she will be found. I don't know what the color green relates too but look for green, red white, and a some long ribbon dangling from an object. God bless and be strong for each other and the recovery of Jenni (Dolores)

Schedules, freedom of movement, privacy and the fact that you can afford a chartered plane better than an airline ticket for the average folk, makes sense doesn't it? That is in answer to FeiZhang!
