US Airways will add Saturday service between Fort Lauderdale and Montego Bayon 9 July:

US 1059 FLL 1130-1220 MBJ 319 Sa
US 318 MBJ 1430-1730 FLL 319 Sa

For now, this service runs through 20 August 2005. Wouldn't be surprised if it goes year-round.

FLL-KIN will probably be upgrading from a 319 to a 321 on the July schedule change also.

Someone add Mexico City already haha! I know it's not a leisure destination. But it still has to have some demand from FLL for a A319 sized aircraft!

Sean, NK has already announced that it will serve MEX from FLL with A321's. I am not sure however if service has already begun.

Any plans to visit Mexico City in the near future?



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I heard FLL-POS will come soon too, but AA has MIA-POS flights so don't know if they want to piss off AA.

Looks like a B737-400, not an A319, flying BWI-FLL-MBJ.

I don't think they care much about what AA thinks. As if AA doesn't fly MIA-GUA, MIA-SJO, MIA-SAL, MIA-KIN, etc.

FLL-POS could be a great performer. There is a lot of high-yielding business traffic. Port of Spain is probably the biggest business market from the Caribbean out of Miami, up there with Nassau and Grand Cayman. It is also the type of market that won't work well out of CLT or PHL, like Kingston, which has, more than any other of the FLL routes, far exceeded anybody's expectations.

POS I agree would do well ex FLL. SUre there other carriers doing the service out of MIA, but there is a lot of people flying that route. If US times their service to get into POS in time to pick up the Caribbean Star connections to the nearby islands like GND and SVD, it would be even better.

FLL/POS is a leisure route persay, but as mentioned it is quite a business passenger oriented route. It would do as well as KIN as flights to both cities caters for similar types of passengers.

Port of Spain is not a vacation destination. It is a VFR and business route, just like Kingston.

Hey,

Does anyone know when this FLL-POS service is suppose to begin if this year? Also what type of aircraft do you think they would use on this route? They would have some competition on the FLL-POS route from Travelspan with their 757.

Regards,

Dear God I hope not, TSA can barely handle the bags now when our Intl flights come in and the 319 dosn't hold much. Plus the dreadful idea of pulling 7000lbs of "Cheese" bags out of the holds.

Haha, that's usually the biggest problem we are on time and TSA goes and screws everything up making half the bags miss.

Caribbean flights have a terrible reputation for having some crazy heavy bags in the holds...

I was trying to be helpful couple weeks ago, by deciding offload the J/W Bin from a VS flight. Ok... J/W/Y still caribbean people, still heavy bags.. OH MY GOD, my back was hurting for a few days..

What is in these bags? To the US, everything caribbean people can't find up there, esp New Zealand Chedder, spices, fish, local confectionary, cakes, the list goes on endlessly.... From the US? Everything the US has that is harder to come by in the islands.. Result? Almost every bag will be at it its 70lb limit or slightly more..

JM makes a killing on excess bags between South Florida and Jamaica.. They make a killing on excess bags between New York and every island they serve.

I didn't realize the spanish caribbean were the same or worse  Smile

In GND and BGI for sure, US has a hard time keeping up with the baggage on peak seasons, esp carnival times... I wonder how they doing with baggage on the KIN route  Smile

I also noticed CLT-LIR is increasing to 4x weekly. US has done very well in LIR and Costa Rica in general, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them add another route or two soon.

US seems to be making the necessary adjustments in terms of cities served to be competitive at FLL. Most traffic for the first few months of US focus city operations has been O&D, allowing US Airways to continue to feed leisure traffic to the Caribbean through Charlotte and Philly.

Two other things I noticed:

US is increasing CLT-BGI to 4x weekly from 1x weekly.

US is adding a Tuesday CLT-STX, increasing that route to 2x weekly.

As mentioned, FLL-KIN is indeed upgrading to an A321 in July.

FLL-SDQ is upgrading to a B757. FLL-GUA is upgrading to an A320.

Look for FLL-SFO before FLL-LAX, from what I hear. Daily A319, probably by November.

Yup, was not really sure of the order but I know both are part of the phase II of the FLL focus city. Have you heard anything about FLL-FRA?

25 PVD757 : Phase II??? Phase I got cut up before it even got established. I know for a fact that if it were not for the lack of gate space, PVD-FLL was going to
26 Njdevilsin03 : Gate space isn't limited at all right now for Usair as long as the flights are domestic and not international. E1 seems to be free a lot with it being
27 MAH4546 : Phase II is very much underway. A daily FLL-SFO service is planned to start this fall with an A319. Evening departure from FLL, redeye to FLL. US Air
28 LGA777 : A330323X mentioned FLL-GUA is upgrading to a 320 in July, it will actually be a 320 six days a week and a 321 on Saturdays. Regards LGA777
29 Supa7E7 : The 757 on SDQ is very interesting because of all the cargo / huge bags that go down there. A 757 on that short distance could carry a sh*tload of bag
30 Hawk44 : That's right phase II, and no phase I was not cut up before it got started they are dropping two of the international flights due to loads not being
31 John : PTY has been a late bloomer and has been performing surprisingly very well recently, BUT it's practically all LAST MINUTE bookings. ADVANCE bookings h
32 PVD757 : The FLL-PVD Sat. service is being cut this month. FLL-SFO also has good Star Alliance ties now that I think about it too...You must admit, Phase I has
33 MAH4546 : If rumours are true, EWR will be back in the winter, as will PTY, and BDL and BWI will go daily again for peak season.
