Okay, not sure exactly how to describe this one topic wise, but hopefully someone can answer this for me. Prior to 9-11, a few times I had visited with family members who were flying international with a connection in MIA at the gate. If i remember correctly, I was required some type of "gate visit" pass. Anyway, my sister is flying from Boston to Aruba on American Airlines tomorrow with a connection and change of planes in MIA. Is there any way that I would be allowed to get to the gate of her connecting flight in MIA to visit with her before she departs? I believe the time between connections is about an hour, so asking her to exit the gate area to an "unsecure" area won't work... plus I'm not sure what kind of problems that would cause her seeing as she's continuing on internationally.
Thanks for any advice from those who are familiar with this situation and MIA.
