I've gotten a fantastic view, although that probably doesn't count....... Keep an eye out though, until the issue gets fixed we'll be seeing this every evening.

It looks like other airlines are taking fuel stops as well. Apparently AS stopped in MCO both ways once in the last week for their MIA flight.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I wonder how many VS aircraft could be at MCO at once, would love to see a VS A340 park up next to the 4 or 5 daily 747's. Same with BA, would be good if the 747 from MIA would park up next to the 777.

A couple days ago there was a major fire at MIA, it was the fuel farm. From the fire aircraft now cannot refuel at MIA so they are stopping off at other airports like MCO.

I would think because of MCO is more use to heavies than TPA. TPA only gets 1 BA 777 a day where as MCO has BA, VS, LH etc...

How is this affecting AA with widebody departures for South America? Are flights going north to MCO (or TPA), then heading south after refueling?

A lot of southbound EZE, GRU and GIG trips has been stopping at SJU for a fuel top-off.

I guess this little divert is earning MCO some big bucks with landing fees and refueling.

Actually I've been looking at the flights departing MIA for a few days now and besides MCO they are also stopping at TPA and RSW... thought MCO is getting the majority. Southbound I have seen several Brazil flights stopping in SJU

some of the other threads say it's getting maintenance.

I would say there are two factors:

1. MCO has operations/ground staff for some of the MIA airlines that require a divert (VS, AS, BA, LH/LX).
2. Simple geography, MCO is closer from MIA than TPA, although not a major difference.


You would think FLL would be ideal for a quick fuel stop, but FLL may not be able to accommodate the additional inbounds with other Caribbean arrivals during the evening hours, if they would park over at the int'l terminal.

Yeah MCO would be #1 choice for airlines out of MCO. What about JAX? I know its quite far north in FL but could they take any?

How long do you think all the airlines are going to be refueling at other airports while MIA gets back to normal?

I would think Sanford would get a few stops as well. Less traffic to hold up the refueling stop.

There are quite a lot of airports up the eastern seaboard that could serve as good fuel spot options; JAX, PBI, DAB, SAV, ORF, and more. I'm betting it's because these airlines have operations in MCO, either directly or through JV/subsidiary.

It is cheaper to go to an airport where either they or a partner airline has operations to handle the aircraft and get contract priced fuel.

25 flymia : Planes can refuel, it just takes a very long time since it has to be done by truck. As said above airlines like LU and VS already have ops in MCO so
26 NASCARAirforce : Not ALL of it, just some of it. We have been getting the DLH and Swissair flights the last few days. DLH cancelled two of their stops yesterday to MC
27 Revelation : Not to mention MCO in the path of TATL flights. MIA-TPA makes you fly the width of Florida, then you fly it again outbound to Europe. Since this prob
28 NASCARAirforce : LTU hasnt flown here since 2004. LTU probably would have gone to RSW to fuel up where they have ops
29 LONGisland89 : I wish it was Swissair.
30 flymia : Meant to say LH not LU which is of course Air Berlin now.
31 NASCARAirforce : Yeah I know, it was Swiss International. I wrote it with less than 3 hours of sleep. I have been hearing the CUN is another stop off for airlines suc
32 flymia : Some of the South American flights are going to SJU. There is still fuel at MIA. It is not like there is no fuel at all. It just takes much longer to
33 NASCARAirforce : the DLH flight to FRA stopped at IAD instead of MCO yesterday I noticed one of the LAN flights went to Kingston yesterday.
