Has NK announced the other 9 destinations? I thaught they would announce all the 10 destinations all at once.

No, they will not be announced at once, they will be announced gradually over the span of at least three months.

Interesting schedule, very attractive for weekend travel for anybody who doesn't mind flying late at night.

Good use of an aircraft that was probably sitting all night in FLL not generating any $$$$!!!

GREAT news! my family just paid 900 a piece PTY-MIA to come for my graduation. Hopefully it will become daily soon.

Now I will be able to go for Carnavales for the first time in 5 years!

PTY also shows on their route map as well.

Of the reported 9 remaining cities, I'd venture to guess a few of these could be on the list:

BZE
STX
CZM
STI
POP

then of course Colombia destinations if they get any frequencies from the USDOT

I think it is great that Spirit continues expanding!! But what I think is really really crappy is that as an employee of Spirit, we only find out about this kind of stuff through Airliners.net or other online sources and not from our own company.

Bogota, Barranquilla, and Chiclayo are planned for 2008, but don't count as those 10 new destinations.

Does anyone know what happened to the DTW-SFO Service?

The Route used to be a dashed orange for Summer only Service, but now it's gone.

Is this a seasonal thing, or did NK drop SFO?

That reminds me of the flights Iberia used to have to Panama from Miami, leaving at 11:55 PM. Arriving in Panama at 2:30 AM. At what time are the returning flights from Panama to FLL?

Related to their operations in Central America, NK is supplying exclusively red-eyes for FLL-MGA-FLL and FLL-SAP-FLL
Both FLL-GUA-FLL and FLL-SJO-FLL are daylights.
In addition, a seasonal red-eye worked for FLL-SJO-FLL.


Any chance for AA FLL-PTY-FLL in the future?

Probably, no. AA's FLL destinations to Central America/Caribbean cater to VFR markets and leisure travelers. PTY is a heavy business market. If AA adds another international destination from FLL, it will most likely be KIN or MGA.

The hiccup here is that BZE would have to be a daylight op unless, Bze Airports wants to invest in a better lighting system to go to round the clock ops.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

That's not a hiccup. BZE is a tourist destination, not VFR. NK would likely not do a redeye to BZE.

To S. Fla...is is very very much VFR....lots of Belizeans enjoy shopping in So Fla (I don't know why!), lots of Belizean Americans living in So Fla, and lots of commuters (MIA-BZE on Mon, BZE-MIA of Fri) who want the best of both worlds. Thsi is why AA keeps it 2Xdaily.....all of it is very high yielding too....AA sends the low yield via DFW.

As a matter of fact I know of a few of the commuters who actually live in FLL.

Having said that a 319 will be overkill...unless they come in with rock bottom fares, then every Tom Dick and Harry will want to go to Sawgrass mills to shop.

Not in the traditional sense, and nowhere near the bulk needed to support a redeye. Spirit plans to fly to Belize has a daylight. The majority of the traffic is US-originating tourist traffic.

Not with a redeye schedule. Plus, Copa uses Concourse J which makes FLL look like an even bigger dump than it already is (and on top of that, FLL's immigration makes MIA's seem smooth).

28 MAH4546 : It won't be the end of $900 fares just yet. Spirit isn't adding enough capacity, at least at first, to make a significant dent.
29 Luisca : So what? if you want free baggage check in and free snacks and drinks then pay the 7-8-9 hundred dollar fares in CM or AA. With NK you pay for a seat
