Did anyone ever figure out what the 100 airlines are?

This part of the MIA website contains a section that lists the airlines that serve the airport. It appears to be pretty much up to date and includes a few I didn't see on your list including Execair, Aztec Airways, Orange Air, Xtra Airways, Ameristar, Prams Air, Southern Air, ABSA and Avialeasing. There are quite few airlines on their list that I have never heard of.

Quoting OB1504 (Reply 196):
Falcon Air was still flying when the airport made the claim of 100 carriers, so that would've brought the list up to 99, but then we'd have to exclude Aruba Airlines, Canadian North, and Eastern because they hadn't started service yet, plus Austrian and Turkish, who hadn't even announced service, so we'd be down to 94.

Don't forget we might see Aer Lingus, SAS, Emirates, Etihad, LOT, SAA, JAL/ANA and KE in the future. That will be "100+ airlines people know"  



Though, realistically, we might see Aer Lingus, LOT, and SAS as early as next year with others arriving within 2-4 years*

Correct, however, that photo is at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport / Broward County International Airport (IATA: FLL, ICAO: KFLL), not MIA.

Thanks for the correction. Did not realize it was FLL.

Dynamic Airways start FLL-CCS service tomorrow. Will be interesting to see how the route does, particularly with a 767-300ER. Aircraft is positioning JFK-FLL during the wee small hours of the morning.

I don't think it will do too well, partly because Santa Barbra and American have such a monopoly on the route. Not to mention that their website is extremely confusing.

eal, I agree. FLL-CCS has potential but would be better served by a more prominent carrier and with less capacity. I haven't seen any marketing for the service. That said, I wish Dynamic the best of luck.

There is so much demand and so insanely little capacity between Miami and Caracas, one doesn't need to do anything but fly a plane. It will fill.

First flight apparently had less than 60 pax. It will no doubt take some time to gain some traction but this is pretty weak for a launch flight.

Still not very good for a launch, especially on a widebody 767. I did see a billboard for them the other day, but I can't remember exactly where. Considering the majority of the Venezuelan community which lives in Doral and Brickell don't see the point of driving up to FLL when there's SBA ,LAN and AA flying 757s and 767s from their backyard. I compared the prices and didn't see much difference.

You are forgetting Weston...or better known as Westonzuela. Flights seems to be selling pretty good for them. Remember AA downgraded their MIA-CCS flight considerably, plus their fares of $1200 for a 3 hours flight are ridiculous. LAN on the other hand is not selling tickets for that route unless you purchase them in a week in advance.

I had not heard of the Venezuelan community in Weston, would make sense to have a FLL flight then. I wish Dynamic luck, any 762 still in service is worth it.

Yes and no. Many Venezuelans I know fly on private jets from FLL and MIA or rather fly in and out of MIA with SBA, LAN or AA.

AeroGal is gone completely, it's now Avianca Ecuador, which is a real shame because AeroGal had a very nice and refreshing livery.
