Seeing that the LH MIA-DUS route has been in operation for almost two whole years, do you think it is the time that LH suggests upgrading it to year-round? The flight has seen good loads and strong yields and is going daily this winter, is this a suggestion that the flight will stick around for next summer? MIA can surely handle extra european flights during summer season and this would help because MIA's european network is pretty small during the summer season. For the moment the flight ends in April 2011, but might this change considering LH has not updated their summer schedule yet.

Traffic in the summer is more from Miami to Europe during the winter it is more from Europe to Miami. Since DUS is not a large hub like MUC or FRA it will be a bit harder as loads are much better with Germans coming from the DUS area to MIA during the winter. I am sure there are some people in the DUS area coming to MIA in the summer but not in the same numbers. Air Berling does MIA-DUS year round if I am correct which makes more sense since going to Miami in the summer is a cheaper vacation then coming there in the winter.
