thanks for the post. Tried to the best of my ability to navigate around MMMX yesterday, except for a 19,000 foot mountain not showing up on our drag vector. Which a few people may have accidentally met said mountain, and likely came to know each other well.
Long story short, there was no approach at MMMX when myself and another ATC opened. He took final, while i took initial. We also had a tower/ground change, which worked out to help us, but just meant some work.
We decided to switch runways to the 5’s to make it easier to get people in as it was just simply chaos around MMMX when the approach before left and everyone swarmed.
I did have to put people into a makeshift hold at alternating altitudes and i think other than our friends that met Mr Mountain, i was able to get everyone in safely at some point.
We had to have 2 stacks, one north of the airport held at a position, and then an oval south of the airport that was a manual hold, appears you were in this one.
Once it cleared up, i got notice that Mr Mountain grabbed a few out of the sky from the IFATC team, and i was then able to figure out what was going wrong and correct the issue / keep people safe.
I hope you were able to get in safely, and that you didn’t mind holding for a bit.
