Re: Emirates drops FLL

Do you think anyone outside of Florida knows where Sanford, FL is? Yet lots of foreign airlines and foreign visitors land there. People who buy vacation packages don't ask where the airport is. As long as it gets them where they ultimately want to go, that's where they go. And yes, believe it or no...

Re: Emirates drops FLL

EK may have had a business case with cruise traffic and some immigrant communities near FLL. But this seems still to be a rather bad choice for most inbound traffic: as other have said, most people outside the US either don't know Fort Lauderdale at all or have no idea it is very close to Miami.

EK only flew to FLL because of their agreement with Jetblue. EK was getting nothing out of JetBlue at FLL. They went to FLL because hardly anyone else was there. DY only had a couple of routes IIRC, and BA joined later. I know this is "permanent" but there's no such thing in this industry...
