Between the cruise contracts, the VFR traffic who do know where FLL is, the local O&D, and whatever other business traffic there is, that should have been more than enough to run 266 seats 4x weekly. Without the cruise industry, it's game over.
Long suspected that this was their M.O. and surprised it took them this long to cancel.
I would add those that cruise their silver years. I know people who retired who circle the world to cruise, returning to Ft. Lauderdale or Long Beach (Los Angeles) for a cruise with their grandkids. Although I conceed cruuse workers probably outnumbered cruise passengers by a good margin, but I would bet the passengers were the only ones in the front cabins.
Until the cruise Industry returns to normal, FLL will have very reduced traffic.
