Loads were pretty good in the Summer but oh well. Should be back to 77W after Summer is over.

I think its less a seasonal issue and more a Turkey issue. US travel demand to/via Turkey is way down since the coup attempt. It seems a lot of TK 77W capacity is shifting towards Asian markets like SIN and KUL

But regardless demand between the U.S. and Turkey is literally collapsing and over half the traffic is local between Miami and Turkey. MIA has fared far better than other U.S. stations. LAX, IAD, and BIS have lost a ton of capacity.

MIA'S benefit is that a lot of the traffic is Turkey-originating, and that isn't being hurt as much as the reverse.

So I was at FLL last weekend or so, and there was this guy named Suresh who was acquainted with someone named Danny that had "connections" at FLL and said that one of them heard from an intern that two bosses were discussing with some guy named Heath that they had indeed seen BA reps looking around in the new G Concourse.

While I do think that Icelandair will be landing in South Florida soon enough, it will likely join Wow at MIA. Icelandair will not be announcing FLL service this week, it already announced its S17 expansion.

Hmm... Interesting... Maybe the BA reps were just flying on Norwegian from LGW. :)

But I do think most of us would agree that BA to FLL won't make sense because of MIA.. ;)

Tomorrow should be fun..

Damn! You are good!!

Press release from FLL. Congratulations to the FLL team and BA!

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) has landed another "world class" airline which will serve London through Gatwick International Airport. British Airways, the United Kingdom's largest airline, will offer non-stop service with their Boeing 777-200 aircraft beginning in July of 2017.

"This announcement has reiterated FLL's status as an attractive, low-cost airport with a diverse portfolio of air service options. FLL is widely recognized as one of the fastest-growing "large hub" airports in the country," said Mark Gale, CEO/Director of Aviation. "British Airways decision to land at FLL illustrates the strength of this region and the incredible opportunities Broward County offers for tourism and business travelers."

British Airways service will complement our offerings to other international destinations in the Caribbean, Europe, Canada, Latin America, Mexico and the Bahamas.

"It is a very exciting time for the destination with the recent announcement of several new international flight routes," said Stacy Ritter, president of Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. "The synergistic partnership of the CVB and FLL continues to elevate Greater Fort Lauderdale as a top choice for discerning travelers.

Colm Lacy, British Airways' head of commercial for Gatwick, said: "We are excited to be adding Fort Lauderdale to our network. As a city that boasts beautiful beaches, an international yachting scene and easy access to onward cruises, we believe British tourists will flock to experience everything it has to offer. We also believe the close proximity to Miami will give businesses and holidaymakers more choice and flexibility over their travel schedules."

FLL is currently undergoing a $2.3 billion Capital Improvement Program which includes a complete terminal makeover, new and expanded U.S. Customs facilities and a recently constructed South Runway.

For MIA, we're liking the chances for EL AL.

Hainan has said that MIA is a possible new city for them and Cathay has also been looking at Vancouver as a stop for flights to MIA.

And will be the tiny A319 :( I'd like to see a 772 on that route already, despite short flight. Loads sure could justify it given that AV has 332 service.

They're doing alright. Loads are decent. Thought they would do much better after Transaero ceased operations but nothing big.

They are flying at 5x weekly for winter, which is the highest frequency they have had on this route so far. This summer they are going at 3x weekly when in the past they have only 2x weekly during that. By loads being decent do you mean like they are at 70/80%?
