Emirates is now switching over to Miami (cargo only) from Fort Lauderdale. There's been talks that when Emirates returns to South Florida, it'll be to Miami. MIA officials are extremely happy.

Not too surprising. I did see an EK 77W (A6-ECI) parked at FLL on 8/29/20. Had arrived the day before from DXB as EK2695, and returned that evening as EK2564. I suspect either cargo or repatriation.
