I was just checking the MIA website and noticed the MIA-MUC flight has been delayed for 2 hours and that its coming from Freeport. Did the plane have some difficulties technical or medical that forced it to land in Freeport?

Quoting Tu204 (Reply 2): True, I have flown into Freeport once and I found it to be the most primitive airport for a "major" city in any country in the world.
I never considered Freeport a "major" city. The population is less than 30,000 and I've always considered it a secondary tourism market. People that want to head to a resort like area with nightlife, restaurants and beaches would likely head to Nassau/Paradise Island. People that are looking for a secluded beach location would probably head to one of the out islands in the Bahamas. I've always thought Freeport was pretty dirty and the people not all that friendly. I used to fly there very regularly when I worked for a small charter operation.
