    This is a nice development for folks who want to go to South Florida and avoid the Circle of Hell known as MIA. AS will save money on their fees as FLL is less expensive.

    They also announced SEA-PHL service.

    While MIA might suck, AS will definitely lose quite a bit of premium traffic, particularly those connecting to Latin America for work in paid Business. As well as some premium O/D traffic.

    Cruise traffic, which is probably responsible for a good chunk of traffic on this route, is mostly in Y and a lot of it will stick... MIA was a route that has done extremely well for AS along with plentiful of connections at both ends.

    I think FLL won't be nearly as profitable, but we will see.

    PHL is a great addition, a long overdue one for sure!

    Yeah, I am much more excited to use the PHL route than FLL. Will be interesting to see which one fits into a MR better.

    I'm sure if AS were making money hand over fist in MIA, they wouldn't be dropping the route. I'm gonna go with their revenue/route folks know better than us on this one.
