It should should not take 3 hours at passport control. I think the last time I took the 207 it took maybe 30 minutes for passport control. Granted, I was able to use the self service kiosk but you should be able to as well as an EU citizen with an ESTA.

Also you'll have to go through customs but that only took us 10 minutes after getting our bags.

Hi South Florida Anetters...
Hope you dont mind a quick question, i am flying into Miami with my young family on 9th August on BA (BA207). I have heard of waiting in line for 3 hrs at passport control? Does this sound feasible - should i be expecting this or is this just make believe? I'm just quite anxious after a 9 hour flight of having 3 particularly grumpy children (3,7,9)...
Thanks in advance for any replies.
Regards,
Ben

As mentioned somewhere above, I was through in less than 15 min. Flew on IB 6117 on May 6. Did not use the self-service kiosks as there was no queue to the immigration officers. Maybe weekends are busier. Not sure how much the kiosks actually help if you have to go to the officer anyway

I'm not sure either. From what I could tell, it was basically the landing card you would fill out on the plane, except it was done electronically. I'm not sure if I'm missing something.

My question to everybody here is can both OS and TK both survive in the Miami market without cannibalizing eachother's traffic? Will TK send a 77W even during low season?

No, they will not survive, neither will TAP, or Aeroflot, or Transaero, even American Airlines will have to de-hub MIA. Hopefully this will get you satisfied for a couple of hours!

Condor was supposed to start today at FLL, but they are delayed until 1230 tomorrow afternoon.

Also, bad day for the south runway at FLL in the middle of Memorial Day weekend traffic; one plane had a gear collapse and a few hours later a cessna caravan seaplane landed on his pontoons (gear up). No one was hurt and there was no damage to the runway.

Hearing some rumors of a new airline coming to MIA later this year/early next year.

No idea when an announcement will take place. Keep in mind, it's just a rumor.


Wonder who can it be?

Well, maybe not that soon after announcing MCO.

But, I do recall reading that the folks in Miami really want EK in town, even more now after EK announcing MCO, so I guess it will just be a matter of time.

In other news, I'll be flying FLL-DTW-SLC-PDX next Saturday (May 30th, 2015) and if anyone is flying Delta as well on that day, give me a ring and I'll guest you into the Sky Club! My FLL-DTW flight leaves around 1:50 PM.

Rumor has it as an 'Asian' carrier; I've been told. But could be a European or Middle Eastern carrier.



MIA has been in talks with the following carriers:


Asia:

Japan Airlines
ANA
Cathay Pacific
Korean Air
Asiana Airlines
China Air
EVA Air
Philippines Airlines


European:

KLM
Aer Lingus
LOT Polish
Scandinavian Airlines


Middle East:

Emirates
Etihad
Royal Jordanian
El Al

Well of course MIA is going to be in talks with as many East Asian carriers as possible!  

Out of all of those, EY seems the most likely. As I've said before, I think EY will follow the steps of QR and EK and do one large expansion rather than one here and one there.

I'm not going to count EK out, but I personally can't see them add MIA just yet. At least not until MCO is well underway. But hey, this is EK we're talking about and if they wanted to, they could fly just about anywhere.

As for Europe, KL seems like the most likely choice. I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. An A332 would probably do well to start.

I'm sure at some point MIA will get a nonstop east Asia flight, but I'm pretty sure people have been saying that for about 10 years. But it'll happen... Someday...

Cape Air has acquired the 2 Caravans on floats used by Resorts International to fly to Bimini from Miami. I'm not sure if they'll end up at MIA or FLL as well. Cape Air is presently hiring pilots for the operation.

I'm also hearing of another airline poking around that is going to fly the old former Cape Air routes this winter... should be a great opportunity to see another 135 flying around Florida.

Good Afternoon all!!

Wasn't one of MIA's new airlines going to be Viva Columbia? I could have sworn that I read that somewhere here in the south florida threads?

Big list. What's your prediction/wish?

I wouldn't be surprised if Icelandair announces MIA (or FLL) before too long. There's a rather large Scandinavia sized hole in MIA's route portfolio. While Iceland obviously isn't in Scandinavia, onward connections to BGO, BLL, CPH, GOT, OSL, SVG, ARN and TRD would help tap further into that market, as well as offering connections to various other parts of Europe.

If RAM were to join OneWorld. It's more than likely MIA will be knocking on RAM's door.

They should be knocking on airlines' doors regardless of alliance membership

Still in the works. I believe the application is with the US DOT.

Aer Lingus is set to rejoin OneWorld and it is confirmed they will announce 2 new TATL for Summer 2016.


Hoping MIA is one of them!

MIA and DFW seem like the most likely choices. It'd surprise if that's not the case. I suppose PHL could be done but Miami and Dallas seem better.

I have always been surprised that KL/DL has not been able to make MIA work. MIA is a massive market to Europe and beyond and you would think SkyTeam would want to connect MIA to one of their biggest European hubs.

Sure does.

I can see IAH if PHL isn't chosen. But it's more than likely MIA and DFW is going to happen for 2016 like you said.


I recently spoke to someone from MIA. It appears they are getting ready for a new airline announcement. Maybe Aer Lingus is the rumored airline I mentioned a few post up.

KLM is in the books for MIA service. They too, are having talks with MIA. MIA and KLM are just trying to figure out what can make MIA-AMS work.

Mild drama at FLL today.

Broward Sheriff Office served eviction notices to 3 food locations today. In Terminal 3, Red Mango Yogurt & Smoothies, Sushi Maki, and in Terminal 4 Edy's Ice-cream. There were also 5 vending machines listed on the court order.

Does El Al have the airplanes to add another long haul route?

Royal Jordanian

They were rumored to start service a few months ago. I doubt it though.

Etihad

From non Euro Carries I think this one has the best shot.

Quoting Miami (Reply 169):
Japan Airlines
ANA
Cathay Pacific
Korean Air

Would be great to have any of these.

Quoting Miami (Reply 169):
Aer Lingus
LOT Polish

I feel like Aer Lingus is the greatest shot out of all the carriers. LOT would be interesting.

I am a big fan of MIA but how many European carriers can the airport support? I read recently that MIA has the second highest
number of European carriers behind JFK.

It's the second largest U.S.-Europe market, hence it makes sense that it has the second largest variety of carriers.

Even bigger than ORD and LAX?

I figured the 5 biggest markets to Europe were NYC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami.

It's NYC, Miami, LA, San Fran, Chicago, IIRC. Then Boston and D.C.

Miami accounts for about 11-12% of all Europe-originating traffic heading to the U.S. New York accounts for about one-fourth. No other market accounts for double digits.

I don't believe they do. I'm not 100% sure.

Rumored since 2013. Was suppose to happen by 2014 but 787s delays messed everything up. Anyways, they wanted to fly via VIE. Now, VIE will be served by Austrian.

I wouldn't care which one. As long as we have an airline with service to East Asia.

I hope it wasn't for health reasons.

On Local 10 they have a nightly special called Dirty Dining, in which the new station exposes restaurants that are not following health code. They've filmed staff giving customers food on dirty dishes, roaches in entrees, re-using unwashed silverware, etc.

The optimistic side of me hopes that it was because they were unable or unwilling to pay the rent, so the Sheriff had to come and remove them. Many businesses fail in South Florida because of the unusually high rent prices (next to NYC, ours are some of the highest in the entire nation per square foot). Were it not for those expenses, the businesses would flourish.

I've flown in/out of Terminal 3 many times, and not once have I been interested any of those restaurants, nor have I seen them to be that busy. I think in this scenario, it might have to do more so with the lack of demand for these kinds of restaurants rather than the rent prices (which, comparatively, aren't too bad). Again, assuming these restaurants aren't being closed down due to any health/safety violations, which I imagine to be unlikely.
