Miami provides excellent connection to the cruise lines that operate nearby, as well as to American Airlines Caribbean and South American network network. It also gives access to LAN Group flights for further connections.

Overall, these are nice additions to have, with connecting passengers being the main beneficiaries of these extra flights.

And extra flights mean extra choice – never a bad thing to see from American Airlines.

    Nice additions? I hate LHR. Why not build a great bridge to the other 3 OW partners in Europe? Most travelers want to arrive at their final destination in Europe rather than being greatly delayed at the busiest airport in Europe. Nothing ever goes wrong at LHR!

  2. DaninSTL says

    +1 @ABC I’d like to see better connections to some other cities in Europe and maybe an avoidance of delays and higher taxes at LHR. I’m sure they must feel that the demand is there or they wouldn’t be doing it though?

    I avoid LHR like the plague these days. FRA saves a bunch, so does just picking a Gulf airline if your destination isn’t Europe.
