North side observation area is closed indefinitely for construction. South side is a park so whatever they are doing with the parks. I was down there last week and there were so many people that I left right away

Was at FLL a few days ago and both the north and south observation areas - including parking - were completely open. And the north side ATC speaker was in operation.

Was at MIA the same day - and noticed "The Holes" may be gone forever, as a large construction project now completely surrounds it.

Sweet! Glad to know it reopened. I’ll be making a trip over there soon. Not too much to look at now though.

The photo holes have construction around them but it doesn't look like whatever it is will swallow them up... yet. It's possible to park a ways away and walk to them, but I don't know if anyone would be kicked out for doing so.

3 airlines are bringing 787 Dreamliners to MIA this week. AA brought one in on Monday for familiarization purposes. British Airways is operating a cargo-only MIA-LHR flight several times a week with a 787-8. Avianca has started operating cargo flights with their 787s this week as well.

LATAM is, interestingly enough, the only airline that hasn't substantially cut flights at MIA. The 777s aren't coming anymore but they've been replaced by 787 cargo only flights to MEX, GRU, and SCL, among other destinations. Some are leaving from the passenger terminal and others from the cargo ramp.

Aeromexico did as well.
Interestingly, the 787 has been out for what, over 10 years...but yet, there aren't a whole lot @ MIA. I wonder why?

We used to get a decent amount. 787 operators that immediately come to mind are Air Europa, LATAM, LOT, Norwegian, Royal Air Maroc, TUI, and Virgin Atlantic. The Dreamliner will be a more common sight here now that AA is preparing to start operations with it.

I think it just has to do with the fleets of the airlines that fly here. The A330 was definitely the most popular aircraft for European and South American operators at MIA: Aer Lingus, Aeroflot, Aerolineas Argentinas, Alitalia, Avianca, Corsair, Eurowings, Finnair, Iberia, KLM, SAS, Swiss, TAP, and Virgin Atlantic all flew them. Of these, only Avianca and Virgin also had the 787 in their fleets, and Virgin alternated between the 787 and A330 depending on the time of year.

The only other European 787 operators that fly to MIA are Air France and British Airways, and in both cases demand warranted larger aircraft like the 777, 747, or A380.

The opposite was true with Aeromexico which typically only flew 2 737s a day on MIA-MEX before the pandemic started.

Smart move. Don’t think they serve any unique domestic destinations with them out of MIA and they’re certainly not needed for the Bahamas flying right now.

Frontier is quietly launching MIA-PBI service this Friday.

This is a triangular PHL-MIA-PBI-PHL routing likely due to CARES Act minimum service requirements but I'm amused that I could buy a plane ticket from Miami to West Palm Beach for less than it would cost to ride Brightline.

Not to mention that Brightline is currently shut down, but I see your point. Wonder how the F9 fares compare to Tri-Rail.

I went on their website to look at prices. It's seems as though I could only book a one way on a Sunday MIA/PBI but no return. $29 o/w. I guess one could take Tri Rail back but Tri Rail currently isn't running on weekends.

I didn't know that about Tri-Rail. Granted, I only see them (sometimes) when I go to the BJs in Fort Lauderdale, which is right next to the tracks.

According to their website, Tri-Rail is running on weekends, however it's only once every 3 hours. All fares have been temporarily suspended so as of now it's free.

Tri-Rail for all its clunkiness has been used by multiple people I know to connect from MIA to FLL or vise versa. For those who say we don't have good mass transit options down here...they are right, but this specific airport to airport thing is an exception. It's worked for some travelers assuming they have the time built in.

Tri Rail is actually pretty convenient just with a relatively limited schedule. Once you can plan around it makes MIA very accessible from both Broward and Palm Beach and also works pretty well for transfers between MIA and FLL as well.

Resume? Isn’t KIN-MIA a new route for BW? Pre-pandemic they only operated POS-MIA. I don’t think BW/JM have operated KIN-MIA on a regular basis since 2009.

They operated it briefly within the last two years. I cannot remember exactly when offhand. It was dropped very quickly though. It lasted for about a month.

BA209/208 777-200ER replaces 747-400


Is that a placeholder or is the A380 actually coming back? Truth be told I wasn’t going to miss it.

It's coming back. And I'm glad it's coming back. I just hope it stays that way.

During the Summer 2021 season, British Airways to send the 777-300ER and A350-1000 to Miami.

UA has added November-January FLL-BOS & FLL-LGA. Must say this is a mild shock. Never expected UA to do non-hub flying especially from Florida and the Northeast. At peak times the flights are twice daily.

Honestly having flown BA many a time on MIA-LHR, I will miss the 747-400's. But do concede the IFE and other amenities just weren't good enough for this day and age.

Wow premerger UA dropped the JFK/MIA flight (which went onto SA) back in 2003. Seems as though UA is jumping into an already crowded (often low yield) market whose future this winter is very unknown.

Yep these are the first NYC (non CO-inherited)-South Florida flights on UA since the MIA gateway was shut. Seems very random and low yield but then again if one thing will fill planes regardless of fare and circumstance it is South Florida - New York. But UA is the last airline anyone would think of for these flights.

This UA South Florida thing is all about "punishment" for Jet Blue given they have brought their Mint product to EWR with non-stop to LAX and SFO. It will likely only last one season particularly once business travel starts getting stronger and UA wants to use their LGA slots for ORD where they have likely pulled them.

Makes sense. Apparently it's LGA-CLE slots that are being transferred for this but I am sure once COVID is finally done, they'll want to resume CLE or use these slots on more ORD flights or something business friendly. BOS-FLL is direct retaliation toward B6 it would appear.

Nice for us spotters. Too bad they don't have the great new Club World J seats on the 77W, just their A350-1000.
