Why can't airlines operate at both FLL and MIA? Specifically LCC's

MIA is an expensive airport. LCC would prefer FLL because the fees at FLL are much cheaper.

I don't think it would make much sense to do that. I don't think its as simple as deciding to fly to MIA. You'd have to still "set up camp". Why bother when you've already invested so much at FLL?

On the subject of B6, they really need to start Chicago.

Anyone on board with Emirates doing DXB-LHR-MIA?   

Well, as interesting as DXB-LHR-MIA would be, and though I'm not sure if EK has fifth freedom rights for LHR-MIA, I believe EK is better off first commencing DXB-MIA first. As the market matures, I think DXB-LHR-MIA would be a great complement to the DXB-MIA service, if at all possible, freedom rights wise.

Personally, I can't wait for EK to announce MIA! I'm sure it will be sooner than later, I hope.

I know many people will disagree, but QR and EK can definitely co-exist in MIA. And I'm certain that EY will serve MIA in the mid-term as well!

Someone in the BA 789 routes thread pitched the idea of British Airways considering service to Ft. Lauderdale. I would be really happy if they sent a 788/789 to FLL. I think the market could support it. What do you guys think?

Highly doubt that will ever happen. With their flights just south at MIA and MIA being a OneWorld hub. It doesn't seem likely. Especially since FLL already has service to London.

Here are some of my thoughts on the upcoming developments in MIA. I am very confident TK will do great in MIA this second time. Several reasons lead me to this. First is that the MIA-Turkey market is much much bigger now than it was 15 years ago. Second is TK's much larger hub and connectivity options now available. Lastly it is TK's extremely low cost-structure that can make it succeed in low-yielding markets like MIA. If EI comes to MIA than with a Oneworld connection that flight will do well too. The only airline I don't see lasting long is OS. If LH cannot make MIA-MUC work year-round than I don't see how OS can make MIA-VIE work in the long run considering VIE is a much smaller and lower-yielding destination than MUC, plus unlike TK OS does not have a low-cost structure that can help it weather the storm in low-yielding destinations.

Looks like the seasonal FLL-TLH-FLL G7 CR2 service won't be the only Delta IntraFloridian flight that is still flown.

We need more flights to Pensacola.. I miss the DL flight FLL-PNS.. The AA flight out of MIA is the only one direct and its usually expensive. Otherwise you have to use Silver connecting in TPA.

AA's LAX-SYD announcement probably explains why we won't be seeing the 77W on MIA-LHR anymore starting towards the end of this year.   At least the retrofitted 772s seem to be based in MIA right now so hopefully more make their way here by year's end.

AA 38/56 appear to be loaded as flights on the 772 for the end of this year. I'm sure this was planned as BA is bringing in the A380. But still, flying AA has its own benefits.

The 77W will not be removed from MIALHR. Same thing was showing for S15 and it never was removed either. AA's 18 77Ws will be able to handle the current 77W schedule plus LAXSYD with ease.

Saying something like this would just be completely ignoring Austrians business model and historical relevance before and after the Lufthansa group. Austrian has always been the low yield member of the LH group and was the low yield airline of Central Europe before LH (half of Austrian is formerly Lauda Air). Austrian has also always been a "holiday carrier", there the one of the only carriers in Europe that still serve many of the Indian Ocean markets. Lastly, Austrians first run at Miami was rather successful, being operated by Lauda first for a couple of years and ending after 9/11. If a markets sustainability was based on which airlines dropped service after 9/11 I'm pretty sure half the world wouldn't be considered sustainable.

What also bothers me is that people seem to completely ignore Miami's status as a gateway hub and as major financial center in itself. Yes, a lot of Miami's traffic is low yield tourist traffic but Miami is by no means "just a holiday destination".

You're right, that was my bad, I was typing rather fast.

However my other point is valid, OS has never been a premium carrier and they definitely don't market themselves as such.

FLL Update.

Nice Milestone for T4 West expansion today. The components for the first 3 of 5 Jetways arrived today. The pedestals for G-14 and G-13 were installed and G-12 will be installed on Thursday. G-13 should have it's gantry installed by the end of today and the drive systems and secondary components for all 3 of these should be finished by June 15/16th weather permitting.

Minor FLL update.

Came across this 20min video of FLL Airport director Kent George covering the near to mid-term future of FLLs development. He covers expansion of the airport and expected airline growth.
Towards the last 5mins of the video he covers FLL's interactions with the government and other markets.

Standard Definition Video link.

You guys are ok with another state-owned airline coming into Miami?? (Turks gvt owns 49% of Turkish). Just waiting for the US3 to start complaining

I love state owned carriers! They treat you ten times better than US flagged carriers. Airline profits or lack thereof are not my problem, just treat me well!

I have been told that ANA has more interest in MIA than JAL.

So what's going on with the alleged meeting of South African Airways and MIA? Did an actual meeting take place? Or were their executives in Miami for IATA?

As I said before, I am still surprised JL has not jumped on NRT-MIA. They have the planes that can easily do it.

Indeed. The meeting occurred at MIA.

I'm surprised as well. It's quite shocking.


Either they are waiting for the 789 or they have little to no interest at all. But to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if ANA comes first.


In 2013. ANA chairman Yoji Ohashi told Nihon Keizai Shimbun that they were considering MIA and that MIA is a candidate as a stopover city for their plans into Latin America.

Has JAL ever mentioned an intention to operate NRT-MIA? I recall most of the commotion revolving around ANA, at least rumor wise. It is strange tho, it seems a logical route for JAL but ANA has always been the more adventurous airline route wise. Does anyone know who has the bigger market share in Latin America? I would imagine its JAL because they served MEX and GRU for years.

Don't agreements have to made with AA first?

Also, there is another AA hub that needs a nonstop to NRT, maybe they are studying that option first.

JAL and American already have a JV.

I don't see why Miami just can't be added, I think it's much more likely that American would operate the route over JAL. However, apparently it's ANA that wants to fly here. With that being said, MIA could probably sustain two nonstops to Asia, but probably not double daily NRT more like NRT and ICN or HKG.

Sidebar: When originally designing the the 777LR Boeing had HKG-MIA as one of the advertised routes, could've just been a random pairing of two well sized cities, or perhaps a selling point for Cathay? I'm sure MIA will get its well share of Asian carriers once the 787s and A350s become mainstream. It honestly crazy how Miami does not have a flight to East Asia yet, not only are the connections unsurpassed but the O&D to Asia from SoFlo must be pretty noteworthy on its own.

It growing, while the demand is there, it would still be an Ultra Long Haul which is never easy to figure out. But the east Asian demand is growing every day from MIA.

Side note: 14 years on Anet! Crazy how much has changed in South Florida overall, not just aviation in that time. When I joined Anet AA had a decent hub with UA with a focus city, DL was #1 at FLL, and MIA facilities were nothing like they are today. 727s 747 classcis and even DC-8s and 707s were a common sight at MIA.

Let's see what happens! I believe LOT Polish is slated to announce NRT tomorrow. I am not sure if other destinations will be announced then, but various long-haul destinations are planned, including MIA!
