How come there isn't more competition on Miami-Los Angeles? It's such a large and profitable market, yet AA has it all to themselves, sans a single Delta flight.

American, Delta, JetBlue, Spirit and Virgin America combined offer 15 daily flights. That is insanely competitive. You can't single out just MIA and ask why there's no competition. The market is both airports, with AA serving it from both airports, DL picking MIA, and the other three favoring FLL.

Maybe UA will come back one day, but it seems more focused on growing SFO and letting AA have LAX.

Then it sounds like AA are the marketing masters here, maybe SW can learn a thing or two from them.

I generally find I'm paying lower taxes and fees on SW than the non low cost carriers. Though I'm sure you'll claim a stat that says otherwise.

The only airline I can consistently get lower than SW is Spirit, with their classic nickle & dime pricing structure. "Oh you wanted Oxygen to brethe on that flight? Yeah that's an extra charge."

Anyone know if Aeroflot is planning on flying to MIA? I noticed on MIA's website they have a flight planner with OAG timetables and it shows 3x weekly nonstop flights to Moscow (Tu,Th, Sa) starting Oct. 30th.

Yes, I will claim that. Taxes and non-discretionary fees are based on airport pairs. So if you fly XXX-YYY, does not matter what airline you fly, taxes are identical.

If you are talking about discretionary fees airlines might charge, like baggage fees, etc., yes they are higher on other airlines; other carriers unbundle fares, Southwest does not.

Yup, Aeroflot will be re-launching Miami service. Last flew to MIA in 1998.

El Al is planning to relaunch Miami, but due to FAA restrictions in place since late 2008, it is not allowed to fly Miami-Tel Aviv as of now.

When do you think they will re-start it? How come they cut it in the first place? Didn't LAX get the 772 instead of MIA?

Miami airport traffic soars; more int’l flights than JFK

http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/201...-international

April 30, 2012|By Doreen Hemlock, SunSentinel
Quote:
Miami International Airport has overtaken New York's JFK as the U.S. airport with the most international flights, Miami officials announced.

The airport passed JFK in international flights during the first quarter this year and final quarter last year. It is averaging 1,288 international flights per week this quarter — one more than JFK, officials said.

No other South Florida airport comes close to Miami's international prowess.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International handles about one-third the number of international flights per week compared to Miami. And Palm Beach International averages only four international flights per day — two each to the Bahamas and to Canada, airport officials said.

In Miami, international traffic is surging so much that the airport set a new record for passengers for the first quarter this year: 10.2 million passengers, up 9.5 percent from a year earlier. International passenger traffic jumped 11 percent and domestic passengers 8 percent over the same period last year.

That growth comes after record passengers at MIA last year, thanks partly to new overseas routes.

More international routes are being added this year too.

In February, LAN Colombia launched service between Miami and Bogotá with four nonstop flights per week, and low-cost carrier Interjet began daily non-stop service between Miami and Mexico City.

In April, American Airlines began five flights per week to Barcelona, Spain, and it added another daily flight to Kingston to offer four nonstops per day between Miami and Jamaica's capital for summer.

A new carrier, Dutch Antilles Express, starts daily nonstop service from Curaçao in the Netherlands Antilles on May 11.

Good to hear for MIA, but I always hate any rankings from Travel + Leisure Magazine. They only include cities that they cover on and exclude other cities. I don't see how you can have a "Best ______" list when you only include certain cities and not all. At least put an asterisk next to any list you make.

AA has applied for additional frequencies to Brazil from MIA starting this fall. One additional daily to Rio for a total of 2 daily non-stops and 3x weekly increase to Salvador and Recife whereby each destination will be non-stop in both directions 5x weekly (currently a daily triangular route).

Did Air France replaced the B747-400 with the B777-300ER on the Miami-Paris (CDG) run?

Massive mall proposed at Miami International Airport

By Scott Blake
Miami International Airport's oldest terminal, dating to the 1950s, could be redeveloped to include a glitzy multi-level indoor shopping mall with escalators that officials say would set the standard for US airports.
The proposed mall is one of several concepts being considered for the Central Terminal under a strategic master plan being developed for Miami International.
"It would be a large retail development unlike what we have in travel anywhere in the United States," said Jose Ramos, who's overseeing master plan development for the county Aviation Department.
As currently envisioned, the Central Terminal would be completely modernized and continue to handle airline passengers alongside a retail, office and hotel cluster.
A section of the Central Terminal — called the Landside Terminal — could be developed up to nine levels and 160 feet tall.
There are "vertical development opportunities for commercial and retail development unlike that seen at any other US airport,"
according to a plan copy obtained by Miami Today.
The idea would be to create "clear line of sight and easy access between the commercial/retail levels and the passenger processing levels," it states.
That could include several levels of retail and offices and several levels of hotel rooms, Mr. Ramos said.
What might hold back the idea, he said, is that county officials are reluctant to take on more airport debt in the aftermath of $6.4 billion in capital improvements to construct the airport's North Terminal, among other things.
Airport officials would need a financial model that works for developers and other stakeholders in the Central Terminal, he said. "It's still very early in the process."

Yup! Finally! The MIC is moving along pretty fast too. Hopefully they're on schedule to open it next summer; I kinda hate getting off @ Hialeah Market.
