United owns a whole concourse at Miami. Why aren't they increasing their domestic and international routes out of Miami. United can be competitive on routes that are already served by American.

They will be moving from concourse f to a newly built concourse j in 2002 or 2003 21 gates.Living in Miami I would love to see United go after American and turn MIA into a mini Chicago like airport.United said from the get go they would patiently and methodically use Miami,but 33 flights a day is pretty weak.Once the conditions in South America improve American will increase its flights even more.I am sure United has studied and done every type of analysis on Miami,but I guess there priorities are in DIA,LAX,ORD,and SFO.I really do not think putting more emphasis on Miami will hurt United.They have the resources to battle American its not like Miami is American's fortress hub they only have 194 jet flights.

Ahhh......the SouthAm routes and MIA UA acquired from PA from the buyout. Funny, PA used MIA as a full-scale hub, w/ intra-Florida flights and Caribbean flights and SouthAm flts. I think UA has the potential to start the flights.

P.S. Does UA still operate the MIA-ATL route? I remember it was started so ATL pax can have a chance to fly to SouthAm on UA.

United does have one flight each way on the ATL-MIA route.

United and American are already in competition at both of their hubs in ORD! That is not the problem here.
