Attention Miami spotters, on Thursday and Friday Air Canada is expected to bring a 777-300/ER on AC916 from Toronto..... arriving Miami at 12:18, departing back to Toronto at 14:20.

Could this be the first time a 777-300 has landed at Miami?

Probably from the 94th Aero Squadron restaurant parking lot just off of the 836 xway and Red road.

I think AF has subbed their regular 744 with the 77W at least twice but not 100% sure though

I believe you are correct sir. A month or two ago one of the Gate Control senior agents told me that they have not had a -300 in there yet. Unless one has come in during the past month this would be the first. I may mosey down there to catch a shot of it.

This would be to pick up the high volume of travelers who are returning from Christmas break. Likely people who have been on cruises over Christmas.

It depends on the winds, but if they land on 26/27, the Walmart parking on 87th Ave is perfect Smile Should they be landing on 08/09, Hard-Rock cafe in Bayside is a really good place. If you have an airband, check to see what runways are open before you head down there.

If they need such an aircraft to pick up the passengers on their way home, what brought them down there in the first place? There is only one AC flight to Miami each day. I think there may be more to the 77W visiting MIA.

As a side note, the 77W flight is fetching $575 per economy seat for tomorrow's flight.

Is the "holes" spotting area no longer open? I would think this would be a good location, or the area beside El Dorado Furniture if landings are to the east.

A very basic example of the situation would be as follows:

1 flight per day, 120 - 150 pax.

If a significant amount of people that travelled down on the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th (600-750 pax) all want to come back today or tomorrow, so that they are home easily in time for work on Monday, the daily A319/320 won't fit them all.

Hence AC notices increased demand, and larger a/c needed. 77W = 350 pax per day = increase of between 230 and 290% per day.

What is the reason for this?

There was at least one cancellation today (AC915 to Toronto) and the larger aircraft was subbed in to bring passengers from flights 915 & 917 home in one shot.

Quoting Swiftski (Reply 5):
Training?

No, training flights, when the aircraft was initially introduced to the fleet, were done locally (ie: not southern Florida).

Quoting Uluru (Reply 14):

A regularly-scheduled Airbus.

Quoting Uluru (Reply 14):

There are four daily AC flights to/from MIA: three to YYZ and one to YUL.



The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.

Do you guys know what reg will be coming in? Maybe 665?

I did. I guessed right and it came in on runway 12 while the sun was between clouds. The reg was C-FIUR. I also confirmed with one of my former employees that this was the first B777-300 to ever land at MIA.

http://www.pbase.com/airlinerphotos/image/107691290 - there are several photos before it in sequence if you click on 'previous' in the upper right corner.

Thanks to MEL for tipping us off!
