Why Does Austrian Airlines Not Fly To MIA?

I read somewhere recently that MIA has the second most European carriers in the United States after JFK so I am curious
as to why Austrian Airlines does not serve MIA? Have they served MIA in the past?

Thanks for your responses.

They don't have the equipment needed to reach Sydney.

Quoting Fallap (Reply 1):

As for Miami, I assume it's because of either a lack of demand or a lack of equipment. It's not a route that would strike me as being low-yielding, so I don't think that would be it.

Because OS has enough trouble, without starting a new International route to a non-allied hub.

Besides, with LH having an A380 on the route, and also connections over IAD and EWR, why should OS start it. More important things to worry about.
