Could be paint. They are painting their 737s, or some of their 737s, there.

The 757s are not being painted at MIA. Nothing is showing up on Flytecomm, so if it was in fact a US 757 it must have been a diversion of some kind.

You may have seen N610AU that should be at Aveborne, was returned to the lessor by US a few weeks ago, is going to Fedex as their first 757F.

Does US only use the A320/319 to MIA? How big is US presence in MIA, what I can remember from the forum there presence is not that big. How come? Is it because of FLL? How big are US operations at FLL? Their presence in FLL is bigger compared to MIA, correct? Does US have plans to further expand in MIA?

Not very big -- 12 daily flights: 7 to CLT, 4 to PHL, and 1 to PIT.

How come?

Many non-AA domestic carriers do not have large presences at MIA. American is very much in control of a large chunk of the domestic market there. Most of those other carriers have a larger presence at FLL, which is not heavily controlled by any one carrier.

A319, A320, and 737-300/400

The Airbuses are recent, as MIA was mostly an all-737 station for several years, with a few occasional MD-80's or 757's.

I am under the impression...correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we starting service to/from PHX soon?

Maybe it filled in for a 737 to handle leftover Superbowl people. CLT-MIA-CLT flights are always full. This route should be flown with 757's and A321's especially during cruise season. Many United Passengers connect to US for these flights since United has retreated from MIA.

Mystery solved. yesterday US 721 CLT-CUN diverted to MIA due a medical emergency, should have landed around 1400, was N940UW. Departed around 45 mins later.

Ok thanks for the info I knew I saw a 57. It would be nice if they came around more often. Didn't US have A330's in MIA at one point? not sure how long they had them but I'm pretty sure they were there. Does anyone know why US Airways Express left Miami?

There is currently a 319 daily PHX-MIA.

There used to be a nightly LAS flight as well, my wife and I took that one home from EYW in 2004 (back when HP was America West  Wink ). Is that flight still going?

I flew CLT-MIA a little over a year ago (around Christmas time 2005) and I could have sworn that one of the flights listed was using a 757 as its equipment.
