American Airlines Announces Big Increase in Service To MIA, With Up To 341 Daily Flights

Miami International Airport will see a big increase in service from American Airlines this winter.

In a press release, American called itself “Miami’s Hometown Airline” – despite being based in Texas.

American said it would operate up to 341 flights at MIA on peak days this winter. That is far more than any other airline at the airport.

AA will also serve 130 destinations from MIA, with a number of new routes.

The new service includes two new international flights beginning in December: Chetumal, Mexico and San Andres Island, Colombia, operated with Embraer 175 twice weekly.

There will be six new domestic routes, including Salt Lake City; Albany, New York; Burlington, Vermont; Madison, Wisconsin; Syracuse, New York; and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Tulsa is planned to operate year round, but only on Saturdays. The other new domestic flights are seasonal and also only on Saturdays, expect Salt Lake City, which will operate daily.

American also said it would continue operating flights from Miami to Tel Aviv 3 times weekly this winter. The service began in June.

A total of 27 American routes from MIA will also see either additional frequencies or upgauged capacity this winter, according to TPG. Ten domestic destinations will lose a frequency, however.

Spirit Airlines, which is based in the Miami area, has announced plans to launch 30 new routes from MIA starting in October and November. Spirit will become the second biggest airline at MIA once all the new flights begin.

Not if you see how they turned our beaches into a mess. Be disrespectful, get disrespected. Simple. Learn some manners, get treated right. Even simpler.

I bet the indigenous people of this land wish that that’s all they had to put up with is somebody messing up their beaches instead of the vicious cold blooded killers who came and took land from coast to coast and turned it into a killing and scalping field.

Which Indigenous people are we talking about? If you think that prior to the arrival of the Europeans, there was no violence, warfare or slavery in the Americans you are in for quite a shock. I understand that the Disney movie representation of native peoples is a nice fairy tale, but unfortunately History is a bit more complicated than that.

Plain and simple, the indigenous peoples of the Americas were no different than the other members of the Human Race. Humans in that era tended to fight each other for control of land and resources. Whether it is the terror the Caribs imposed on the peoples of the Caribbean or the subjugation and enslavement of the tribes of central Mexico by the Aztecs, the Americas were long at war before Columbus arrived.

Your main qualm should be with biology. Had the indigenous peoples of the Americas had some exposure to the viruses and diseases that had afflicted Europe and Asia for millenniums, they might have stood a chance against the more technologically advanced Europeans. It is a shame that so many people and cultures were lost, but alas history is what it is and we should remember that it is HISTORY and not the modern day.

Typical response by a decendant of the “robbing and butchering clan,” you know, let’s sweep our filth under the rug and forget about it and every body should just ignore what the word “reservation” realiy mean. Funny how they still exist even in the so-called “modern day.” Meanwhile, just forget anything the Europeans did and focus on the group who they’re pointing their fingers at now.

I, like many people, am a mixture of all the predominant races in the Americas. Unlike you, I understand that history is not black and white and that without perspective we end up squabbling over which side is good and the other evil.

Should I feel as a victim because my pre-Roman Iberian ancestors were butchered and subjugated by the invading Romans? Does my victim status somehow cancel out with the atrocities that my Spanish side commitment during their own conquest or the inquisition? Can I reclaim victim status with the horrible legacy of slavery with my Sub-Saharan ancestors? Or do I then lose that status when it was my own African forefathers that captured and sold their own into slavery?

I certainly do not brush anything under the rug nor do I sugar coat things. Were the Europeans brutal? Yes. Were indigenous Americans brutal? Yes. Collectively, we as a Human race have had incredibly savage periods in our history. It is ridiculous to extrapolate HISTORY on to people of the modern day. Dividing people into historical groups never ends in anything productive. Look to Germany in the first half of the twentieth century to see the logical conclusion of such an ideology that intended to exterminate those that were perceived to be descended from the “robbing and butchering clan”.

“Were the Europeans brutal? Yes. Were indigenous Americans brutal? Yes”

No matter what you say to defend the indefensible, there is no way this one fact can be overlooked, and that is, Europeans “SAILED” to this continent with the intention to take it and change plus remove and kill the indigenous people who wouldn’t comply to their demands. I don’t “extrapolate” anything, I mention facts. Don’t chain, wipe, rape, degrade, kill, sell, take away freedom, change their name, take away their culture, take away their language plus commit other atrocities, and then pass laws to make sure those people stay on the bottom while you stay on top and do this for centuries, and now point a finger at them and say “what’s wrong with them?”

GTFOH!

Columbus sailed out from Spain in search of Asia, specifically India. In fact, it’s said he died still thinking that he had found a western route to the East Indies. To say that he premeditated the conquest of two continents, yet unknown to western civilization, is ludicrous and ignorant of history.

I understand that with individuals like yourself, there is no point in entering in dialogue as you have no intention to view history in anything other than simplistic dichotomies of good vs. evil and victim vs. oppressor. You must be blessed to have a “pure” bloodline where none of your ancestors ever “ chain, wipe, rape, degrade, kill, sell, take away freedom, change their name, take away their culture, take away their language plus commit other atrocities.”

For those of us in the real world, we understand nuance and acknowledge that the story of humanity is a complex web of triumphs and horrors made by all: regardless of the color, creed or culture.

Read “Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee : an Indian History of the American West” and it might give you a different perspective.

Thank you for the suggestion. Might I also suggest you look into pre-Colombian history of indigenous Americans of both North and South America, as it may give you some broader context then the American west of the 19th century.

Are we in the 1930s? No one is advocating for racist policies, on the contrary. It doesn’t matter your color, what most people want is for people to act civilly and respect the laws and property.

To criticize the predominant behavior does not mean you advocate racism or are a racist. Unfortunately, all to often we claim victim status and our most prominent members of our community propagandize the worst elements of society. If only we had more Billie Holidays, Nate King Coles and Ella Fitzgeralds today. I guess we have to settle for the drugs, hookers and the gang life.

American is just reacting to the arrival of airlines like Southwest, Frontier, and Spirit to its home turf. Jetblue is a partner of American so it doesn’t count.

Spirit will end up being the most dominant airline. It will continue bringing all other airlines to the bottom in terms of service.
Also, the flight to Columbia should be on a beautiful Boeing and not a Brazilian Embraer.

They’ll probably pull out of half the routes that make no money. Also, Embraer is owned by Boeing.
