When Will VX Start MIA Service?

I was wondering if someone could give me some information on this. I heard a while back (maybe almost a year ago) that Virgin America was planning to begin service to MIA, and likely even make that a focus city. Anyone know if this is still going to happen anytime soon? Will AA win the fight to keep them out (or did they already), like they did at ORD? On that note, does AA depend mostly on connecting traffic to the Caribbean and Latin America, or is it also a strong O&D domestic market (in which case, VX would be much stronger competition)?

Soon, hopefully. It would follow that once the economy recovers a bit and VX is ready to start adding new cities, MIA would be at the top of the list.

So far, nothing concrete on even a single flight, let alone a focus city operation.

I am sure Miami is on the short list of the next destinations - however- VX is in need of additional aircraft. I assume the earliest wouldn't be until 2010.

With that said, David Cush stated on a town hall call that they are exploring more seasonal flying opportunities, especially during the winter. MIA is clearly a year-round, important destination, but I assume the service could start in the winter and as additional aircraft come online throughout 2010, VX could sustain their peak schedule in addition to MIA. We shall see.

Initial service would probably be from SFO and LAX and you can bet AA will do all they can to drive them out of the market.
