Quoting MEL (Thread starter): Could this be the first time a 777-300 has landed at Miami?
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.

Quoting AA388 (Reply 1): I live in the MIA area
can any one tell me where a good spot to see this plane would be??
It depends on the winds, but if they land on 26/27, the Walmart parking on 87th Ave is perfect 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.
Where aviation is not the side show, it's the main show!!!
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.

Quoting Uluru (Reply 14): If they need such an aircraft to pick up the passengers on their way home, what brought them down there in the first place?
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.

Quoting AA388 (Reply 20): Did anybody catch it today? I really would like to go see it tomorrow.
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.
