Wed Mar 01, 2006 7:57 pm

When AA 'll get his new terminal at MIA, then they'll begin new destination in Europe?

About long haul domestic flights, MIA-PHX and MIA-SAN will see either 757's or 737-800's or both but MIA-SEA will more likely see 767-300ER's. The 757 and 738 don't have sufficient range to fly MIA-SEA nonstop, eastbound maybe yes, but not westbound because of headwinds.

SEA-MIA is well within the 757's range. AA operates DFW-ANC, BOS-SNN; US operates PHX-HNL etc. with the 757. The 738 could also probably make it too.

AS flies MIA-SEA nonstop w/ 73NG / 738 mix and even 739 at times. AA does SFO w/ 752 so im sure a 752 can make SEA as well.

AA flew MIA-SEA with both the 757 and the 767-300. So the 757 does have the range. It also flew MIA-YVR nonstop for a while, so its well capable of doing this route. I think it will be flown with a 737-800 if it ever comes back.

Do you honestly think MIA can support such flights? Take a look at SEA, as it is right now AS flights non-stop to both MIA and FLL, could the area really support a third daily non-stop. Talking about the use of ther 763 seems a bit large for a route already with 2 daily non-stop flights.


As far as PVD goes, would that be done by AE, I remember hearing that AA will be scaling down its operation there in terms of the size of aircract used on existing routes to ORD and DFW.

SEA does not have a nonstop to FLL. There is 1x daily to MIA only on AS.

The problem with the flight is that it is a red-eye to Miami, and returns to SEA in the morning. This is inconvenient for people coming from the Carribbean that want to connect, because they usually have to make a connection through MIA and DFW. There has been a rumor in the past that if AA started a flight, it would go SEA-MIA in the morning, returning to SEA in the evening. This would allow single connections to AA's Latin American network in both directions.

ZRH is one to watch... now that AA/LX Relationship is over. As of now LH is letting LX continue their ZRH-MIA route which is one of the most profitable routes for them to America, rather than bringing back the seasonal MUC-MIA on LH (LTU flies MUC-MIA).

If LX were to cancel ZRH-MIA at some point would AA jump on this route? I could easily see them doing at least 5 to 6 weekly 763 flights.

What do you guys think?

AA is a waste of space at PVD either way. MIA could be mainline or RJ (CR7 due to range). Im hoping down the road DFW will come back as a mainline, though itd remain an eagle station.

NK is doing via FLL what AA is not doing from MIA. Rumor has it that the 2x PVD-FLL will return once their airbus transition is complete in the fall.

I would also like to see AA link MIA with BCN and MXP. And of course, some day (with the 787) JNB and CPT.

Those would be some intersting routes out of MIA. Does AA currently have any other African destinations served from MIA? I am pretty sure that they do.

No African Destinations at all out of MIA but they have always been interested in CPT/JNB service from MIA. Hopefully sometime in the future...

After South African pulled out no service to Africa was available from MIA but it looks like South African will be back in MIA soon , also a return of service to Moscow w/ Domodevo. Ive always thought AA should have started MIA-MOSCOW service.

How long ago did AA serve that route, and why did they pull out of there? Not profitable I guess...

I think you misunderstood my statement, they never have ..I think they should thought.

Aeroflot flew to MIA via SNN up to the late 90's. Domodevo looks to be taking off to MIA from Moscow very soon as noted in previous posts this year sometime.

I am not sure, LX/AA is routing a lot of conecting traffic via ZRH to MIA/LatinAmerica in the moment, without a feeder from ZRH it could be very difficult to fill up own flights from MIA to ZRH.

Yes, there was a lot of connecting traffic via MIA, but the high yielding traffic was MIA originating, mainly connecting to the Middle East and Africa. The route performs exceptionally well yield-wise, and I don't think it will be hugely affected by the cancelation of the AA/LX partnership, especially as Lufthansa will be codesharing on the flight starting in April.

I think BCN would be a good candidate for AA @ MIA. Possibly also the forever chattered AMS spot. Granted, AMS is very well served to the USA, it may be time for AA to get to Schipol.

Yes, that would be nice, no more two stops to AMS on AA through LGW/LHR.

From MIA, SAN and PHX seem like logical routes as AA pretty much has the rest of the Southwest and Cali covered N/S from MIA, what are the odds of a daily SNA-MIA flight, that would be cool.

Upgrading MIA hub for AA is definitely a reason to install winglet kits on the 738s.

I believe once the 787 hits AA's fleet, it will not be a question of if, but when. Certainly NRT for starters...

I agree 100% if not AA metal, definetly JAL 787 service w/ AA codeshare all over it.

Who knows maybe even ANA 787 service MIA-NRT?
