Unfortunately, KLM will not fly to MIA this winter due to high level of COVID-19 cases. MCO and LAS will not be served either. Unfortunate but has not directly related to COVID case levels.

For those questioning the 777-300ER for Eastern, as mentioned before, I can confirm they will be getting two of them. Not going to name the source. Right, but do we know what they will be used for? That, passenger or cargo? They had 777s in the passenger operation, but those appear to have been rem...Jump to post

Delta 11 is MIA’s newest renovated jetbridge, I worked it the other night on a GND outbound. Not having to spool up the A/C hose is pretty nice! Also, the lead in to Delta 27 has been repaved with fresh asphalt. Is it glass? I heard MIA is getting glass jetways and there’s one currently sitting on ...Jump to post
Turkish Airlines will maintain it's previous summer-only second flight to Miami year-round. It operates as a westbound redeye, which I believe is the only such service between Europe and the U.S. Great news. Flights have been doing fairly well in both directions.

I’ve heard rumors Allegiant might be knocking on MIA’s door for a late winter launch in time for spring break. MIA is just missing Allegiant and Alaska at the moment and they would have all the major LCCs. I have no doubt in my mind about them launching MIA in the near future. Heck, maybe even Silv...Jump to post
