. I am not sure if other destinations will be announced then, but various long-haul destinations are planned, including MIA!

Apparently they are announcing more cities at a press conference on Monday, according to an article. So let us hope that the expected comes true!

LOT Polish is rumored to announce flights to MIA.

I wonder if LOT wil dilute the TK and OS revenue?   

In all seriousness though, I look forward to seeing what becomes of this rumor. I guess some days there will be two LOT planes on the ground at once, or have the 787s operating for Air Europa returned to normal service with LOT?

If LOT announces MIA, apparently TK will cancel MIA.

I really can't express my disappointment that what once was a helpful and effective forum topic for relaying local information for South Florida aviation has degraded into contest of a few members displaying their limited ability of attention grabbing humor; that at the same time implants confusion into the topic for those members who do not know that statements being made are, at best whimsical and at worst thread trolling.

FLL Update.

Anyone wishing to photograph the US Airways and American Airlines ticket counters at FLL in their current signage should do so as soon as possible.
This coming week or early next the ticket counters will be changed over to the New American signage. The newest check in kiosks are already in place.
Those wishing to capture the counters without passengers can best do so between 19:00-04:30.
I will update if I can lock down the exact date of the changeover, but it should be done within the next week.

TATL destinations haven't been announced just yet. The way I see it, the most likely candidates (in order) are MIA, DFW, PHL and IAH. You'll know when everyone else does

I've been hearing Virgin American might start services to MIA. Would make sense since Virgin Cruise Line will be based in Miami. Just my two cents.


Yes, I know. "What does cruise have to do with aviation?" Maybe VX and VS can have nice bundle deals to MIA for Virgin Cruise Line.

I drive by FLL on I-595 a few times a week I have noticed a couple of things:

1). The white 727 that used to be parked near the UPS and FedEx terminals was moved next to the Broward County Aviation Department
727 and now is gone. Was it repaired and flown somewhere else and if so where and for whom?

2). It looks like UPS has moved their terminal to the far west side of the airport near the BCAD 727 as I have seen the UPS 757 parked in this
area. Is this a permanent change?

Thanks!

The company that owned that 727 was given an eviction notice for storing a derlict aircraft, so they fixed it up enough to ferry it to Sebring, FL. where it will be scrapped.

And yes, UPS has permanently relocated back to the northwest ramp where they used to be before DHL left.

First - it shouldn't be considered a loss since AA should be flying there soon and MIA made the effort - it was nothing they did. Why have the route flown by an airline that doesn't have the connectivity or the right plane.

I'm guessing they'd go with the A330 on this route given the config is slightly less premium than the A340 despite usually having about 20 more seats in total than the typical SAS A340?

We will see EI to MIA before SAS though. MIA is currently week in Northern Europe. All they have is BA/VS and LH at the moment for North European connections. I don't see SAS coming to MIA at all though to be honest, the market is too low-yielding.

Something that might be of interest to all of you:
Over the past ten days I was on cultural exchange in Taiwan, among one of the topics brought up was the eventual ability to launch nonstop flights between Taipei and Miami. According to our tour leader, who has been in contact with numerous officials in the Taiwanese Cultural Office in Miami and officials from the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a flight was "in the works". Apparently the major deterrents for the flights where finding correctly timed gate access for connections. Considering EVAs set expansion plans, the opening of the cross-straight transfers, and previous rhetoric from the Taiwanese Cultural Office and MIA officials, TPE may very well be MIAs first nonstop to East Asia. However such rumors could very well be political chargin.

We will see EI to MIA before SAS though.

Proof? How do you know?

Quoting miaintl (Reply 140):
I don't see SAS coming to MIA at all though to be honest, the market is too low-yielding.

It doesn't matter. SAS itself said they were looking to launch flights to MIA.

AB only flies to CPH in Northern Europe, whilst AY is seasonal and only 3x weekly. The feed at CPH is not what it once was, so SAS is going to have a hard time filling those planes. KL was MIA's best bet for Northern Europe, but the route failed twice. EI will eventually come to MIA since it is officially joining OW and will codeshare with AABA. It also has a low-cost structure which is ideal for destinations like MIA and MCO. SAS does not have that cost-structure. So I am skeptical of any news of SAS coming to MIA.

Are you kidding me? SAS will not have a hard time at all filling the planes. Yeah, the yields are not the best but it can sustain year-round, daily service.

Just like how you were skeptical about Austrian and Turkish, right?

But can it sustain daily year round service to CPH or will it split it with ARN? I stand corrected on TK and OS. I was unaware of their cost structure, and assumed they where both premium-heavy carriers, which evidently is not the case (especially with OS). SAS is not in good financial condtion and they don't have a strong hub, unlike TK, whose hub is argueblly on par with LH at FRA.
