wow, NK is going crazy down there. Since it's PR, no customs needed in FLL, right??

Right.

The service will be an A319 and will become daily in June.

I wonder if AA is going to follow suit (from MIA)...they don't like what NK is doing, quite obviously.

thanks Mark, looks like a nice little tiff is shaping up in South Florida between AA and NK...

It's hard to believe there are no secondary PR cities served from SFLA. NYC OTOH, has multiple flights to PSE, and BQN.

Well the reason was simple: American Airlines doesn't have an interest in flying to secondary cities in Puerto Rico. They have flown MIA-BQN and MIA-PSE in the past, untiol the mid-1990s.

I won't be shocked if Ponce is next for Spirit.

AA also flew JFK-BQN, IIRC.
