- Will MIA ever lower their landing fees to win back domestic flights from the majors?
- When will FLL hit their tipping point and be too small for all this growth?
- Will FLL ever jack up their landing fees?
- Nothing lasts forever and things reverse; when do you think the major domestic carriers return or expand in MIA?
- Will the International carriers especially the Latin American airlines follow suit and abandon MIA for FLL?
- Who will take the plunge and be the first to shift their operations back to MIA or just expand while keeping their FLL operations?
- What will be MIA's future if this current trend continues? Major airlines pulling out or reducing their MIA flights in favor of FLL?
- Is it conceivable that in the future the airlines could find FLL overpriced and congested like MIA and shift to PBI, TPA or even MCO?
At least for the foreseeable future it looks like we will not enter MIA and compete with AA. I feel we WN could be formidable competition for AA. There was speculation and the rumor mill was buzzing as recently as a year or two ago that Metro Dade (operator of MIA) would give us an incentive to set up shop at MIA with as many as six gates!
The Miami metropolitan area is so spread out that the pie is big enough for us to thrive along with our large FLL operations and give AA a run for the money. I could see us reaching into Central and the northern part of Latin America and even deep into Latin America once we take delivery of our new 737-800's and especially when we get our hands on the new 737-NE!
