TAP? Would that be in addition to their existing MIA service (making them the only Euro carrier to serve both MIA and FLL) or would they be transferring the current service?

There are no rumors of TAP starting FLL and EuroWings already applied with U.S. DOT to fly to the United States and said it will launch FLL in March 2016, from Cologne.

I'm sure they won't. AirBerlin serves MIA daily. MIA is an OneWorld hub, so I find it hard to believe that Eurowings will give AB any hard time.


Plus, Lufthansa backed out from DUS-MIA because of AirBerlin.

More of a practical question this time, is AA still sending the PMUS A330s on MIA-PHL-MIA? I'd like to visit Philadelphia in the fall / early winter, but all I see is 763s. While 767s are fun, I prefer the suite product on the A330.

The outbound flight on which the A330 was on MIA-PHL is AA1656. I forgot which one the return is.

I also heard the TAP rumor from someone working at FLL. I personally can't see it happening any time soon but then again TAP's new owners, led by Mr. Neeleman, said last month that they intend to expand to 10 new US destinations and 8 in Brazil. People could be jumping to conclusions based on Azul already flying to FLL.

In other FLL news, pax traffic was up 9.9% yoy in May and is up 9.1% yoy for the first five months of the year. International pax numbers grew for the 22nd consecutive month (18th consecutive month of double-digit growth) and were up 21.7% yoy for the five month period and up 47.9% over the first five months of 2013. JetBlue pax numbers grew 16.1% in the five months to May 31, 2015 and accounted for 20.7% of pax, followed by Spirit (17.9%), Southwest (17.9%) and Delta (12.2%).

That's probably exactly where this ridiculous rumor that is not grounded in any reality started - Azul buying TAP. Azul flies to TAP. TAP flies to FLL.

Ridiculous.

FLL can't attract one single mainline European carrier and TAP is suddenly going to fly there? No.

I was wondering if any of the more seasoned members can tell me what happened to the "Fly Eastern" sign at MIA. I understand it was torn down, I just wanted to know when and was the story of its final days. It's a real shame that American didn't replace it or keep it. Would have offered a nice touch to the airport.

You can see it here pretty good.

I wasn't aware that AA was using that hanger...or was it torn down? Isn't AA using the ex-National hangar?

MIA has two LCCs already, because Sun Country is an LCC and besides their charter service to Cuba, they have 'normal' service to MSP.

With that said, I'm wondering who the third will be.

Absolutely none of that precludes JetBlue coming to MIA. JetBlue likely loses marketshare in the Northeast markets because there are a ton of people that won't use FLL, either because it's a dump (which it is) or it's too far.

MIA service can help them gain that marketshare back.

I just got interesting news from a person I know. This is what he had to say:

"I spoke with someone at the Miami Taiwan Embassy regarding the rumors of flights from Miami to Taipei. They said the Miami Airport Officials did visit Taiwan to discuss the possibility of direct flights from Taiwan to Miami. Both EVA and China Airlines were interested. EVA has since abandoned interest and chose Houston over Miami (that flight started in late June). China Airlines is still interested but apparently it won't happen before 2020. China Airlines wants to fly their new 777-300ER on this route, but the current orders with Boeing are already assigned to current and new routes. Apparently by 2020 they will have enough 773s to assign to this route"



2020 is a long time.. And a 77W? I think a A359 would be far better option. Nonetheless, this is odd but interesting at the same time.

Interesting, adds on to what I heard earlier this year. I am very surprised that China Airlines will be pursuing the route, seems much more like EVAs territory given the outstanding aircraft orders and their previously announced NA expansion.
