AA56/57 and AA38/39 swap equipment on March 29th.
The former will now be operated with a 772 and the latter with a 77W.

I hope Silver does do well, however, they do seem to have a ton of problems with route selection (CHS??? FLL-PIE??). Has anyone reported on their profitability yet?
CHS has been doing fairly well for almost every airline that has started it recently (it's too early to tell for PD), so I don't see why one daily Saab 340 to MCO and TPA won't at least have a chance.

Quoting Miami (Reply 35):
Qatar Airways flight 778 (MIA-DOH) was diverted to Gander last night. Apparently a mother gave birth during flight.

That would explain why I had so many misconnects off of that flight. It's usually very punctual.

Quoting Sinlock (Reply 8):
MIA was a minor factor in the failure. The two major factors was FLL lack of adequate international facility's for connecting passengers, and Spirit hiring away a key member of the US Air Caribbean management team and instantly gaining valuable contacts.

Ben Baldanza's done an excellent job building a hub for Spirit at FLL, as well as transforming their business model.

In other news, it looks like FLL-FRA is no longer bookable on Condor's website.

Customs apparently didn't like the schedule they proposed, so they're still working it out They want to come in around 7-730p which is one of the busiest times in FLL Customs.

Thanks for the update. The flights are still showing on the timetable on the Condor website, just not bookable. Hopefully the situation will be resolved before too long. Flights were due to recommence on May 22.

Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 29):
It's certainly a good alternative to the now closed 72nd Ave store.

Actually, I think the old 72nd Avenue store is now "The Airplane Shop" off of the Palmetto Expressway and 74th Street exit ramp. I have gone there the past few years to buy many of my aviation stuff, plus their Atlantic Models division manufacturers many airplanes, including the airplane nose plaques in one of the photos at Banyan.

Didn't notice if that was mentioned in the subsequent posts, so I figured I would point that out.

Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 26):
Air Transat 738 reached the holding point of 10L. It waited on 8 landings. By the time it turned onto the runway, there were 8 or 9 aircraft behind it. Wasn't the new runway supposed to relieve this congestion?

Would all landings on 10R/28L and all takeoffs on 10L/28R be more efficient?

I've noticed that myself also. I was/am a champion of the new runway, but in my opinion it is heavily underutilized. I don't expect to see dual parallel landings like MIA, but if anything during the peak periods, ALL of the arriving aircraft should be landing on 10R and leave 10L for the departing ones. Instead I just see the same back-up on 10L as existed before the new runway.

No, I think the store on 72nd Ave (next to the El Dorado, right?) was called Just Plane Fun or something like that. The Airplane Shop is a different entity and is definitely the best place to buy model airplanes in person in South Florida.

Instead I just see the same back-up on 10L as existed before the new runway.

It's not as simple as saying one is for departing and the other arriving. A lot of factors go into the decision of which runway the aircraft operates off of. Currently, the general idea is if its to/from southbound, it will use10R or sometimes if its on the back E, F, and H concourses it goes to 10R because its less taxi time.
Aircraft from the northside concourses usually taxi to 10L. Again, most are northbound and its easier for them, especially since the midfield taxiway infrastructure is still under construction making it difficult to navigate to the south side. These new taxiways will be open around August-ish with TWY L (built in the area of old RWY 13) opening at the end of April.

An example taxi instruction to the south runway right now from the north concourses goes like this "Taxi via Tango 5, left turn Sierra, left turn November, right turn Golf, left turn Quebec, right turn Juliet, to RWY 10R"
To go to 10L is: "Taxi via Charlie to 10L"

Also, some pilots request the north runway for "performance" reasons.. Not to mention various approach and departure traffic control issues that may factor in.

I caught a few shots of him today at FLL parked at Sheltair north. Maybe he's based there now? He took off to the Bahamas and came back a few hours later. That's a nice park btw.. I've been in South Florida nearly 10 years and had only recently been for the first time and watched the cruise ships leave port. Lots of Canadians during the season, lol.

Aircraft will be a 767-300


They will opeate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays


This will be MIA's 3rd link to FRA. Lufthansa, American, and now Condor.

Seems odd. Flights to/from FLL are bookable again on condor.com and this route typically operates May to September/October. Are they going year round and switching to MIA from October? It doesn't appear to be bookable on their website. Also, if you go to book FRA-MIA in the summer months it just routes you through MAN on the Thomas Cook twice-weekly MIA service.

Not really that odd, considering a comparison like Newark: many international airlines run 747s to airports no more than tens of miles across from eachother, EWR / JFK is an example and a FLL / MIA comparison could be made as well.

Not exactly apples and apples but I see the point you're trying to make. I don't find the idea of Condor switching from FLL to MIA odd at all. What I do find odd is the following:

(i) Condor was selling FRA-FLL as normal
(ii) Condor suspended reservations for the route for a short time pending CBP issues at FLL
(iii) Condor resumed taking reservations for the route very recently
(iv) Kaminari above stated that agreement was not reached with CBP at FLL and that the Condor flights would be operating to MIA in lieu
(v) Miami above posted that Condor would start serving MIA from October despite the South Florida flight historically being a summer service

Clear as mud really. But in the grand scheme of things it's all very trivial and I will keep sleeping at night

Start move to swap the 763 for summer season, I am sure the 772 will come back come fall and perhaps increase frequency.

It's good to see OS sticking year-round. I wonder what impact OS will have on SU and UN and other Eastern European carriers operating out of MIA? With OS's heavy frequencies and product, it could very well push the Russian carriers out of the market. They both are going for the same clientele.

Nope. Not the same market. But yes, accoridng to you, Aeroflot has been ready to discontinue service to MIA since around 2005.

I have asked it a million times because nobody ever bothered to answer my question. You are the first.

Sorry to hear that. Glad I was the first  

It has been answered just as many millions of times as it has been asked. Not the first; not the last.
