RE: Rumor: MIA To Get Another ULH Route

Mon Oct 26, 2015 8:13 pm

i would be THOROUGHLY surprised if it were ANA announced NRT-MIA (but he said new continent, and DOH is strictly speaking in Asia....)

if new continent and new airline are a must, then it's very likely SAA from JNB. A left-field wild card would be ET doing ADD-DUB-MIA. I don't really see MS, RAM, or Arik being realistic chances of anything.

You also forgot about SAA. They have a new route. JNB-ACC-IAD. I believe it replaced JNB-DKR-IAD in terms of frequency. Pretty sure it's still going.

how they been "insensitive" ? The only game changer is if QF does SYD-MEX-MIA with MEX-MIA local rights. If it's an extension of SYD-DFW-MIA that's a LOT of seats with no local rights.

The only insensitive one is Kuwait Air but I'd be shocked if they're going to MIA, esp after how they kicked UA out.

El Al sounds very plausible but that's not a new continent per se.

I'm still betting on something to Africa.

Good guess but they already serve another US destination (LAX). I was thinking Malaysia Airlines but they too serve LAX. Skymark but they don't have an aircraft to make it to MIA (4 stored A330-300's). DY is another but they already serve the US. SAA is the other with sensitive (financial) issues.

Or an airline that is resuming a route previously flown. JL is resuming DFW next month.

If it is JL, then MIA should be doable non stop from NRT, as the route doesn't even break 6500 nm.

Wonder how and if all of this ties in with YEG and the rumor floating around that airport.

To me, I do not want to argue over whether DOH is located in Asia, but to me Oceania and Middle East are either both Asian, or both not Asian. I wouldn't say that DOH is more Asian than what PER is, but I suppose there will be disagreement. But wouldn't it not be Africa as it previously was served by South African?

ET to ADD (no alliance feed, very long, high altitude in ADD, probably not without the DUB stop)
MS to CAI (no alliance feed)
AT to CMN (could be interesting)
SA to JNB (I think this is the winner, didn't they previously serve FLL through SID?)
QF to SYD (verrrry long)
