A Volaris Costa Rica Airbus A320-200N, registration N545VL performing flight Q6-4069 from Mexico City (Mexico) to Guatemala City (Guatemala), had been cleared to line up runway 05L some time earlier and was moving onto the runway, when some other crew on radio transmitted a warning about the developing conflict prompting the crew of Y4-799 to initiate a go around from low height (about 100 feet AGL).
