I've been on everything from a 767 to an ERJ on this route with Delta and their DL Connection carriers.

Delta with 767 and MD-88
Comair CRJ
ASA CRJ
Freedom Airlines ERJ

Freedom actually had the best service. They actually managed to do a drink service on that route.

Yep. The button to go down there is still in the SkyClub elevator. Kinda wanted to push it to see what would happen the last time i was there.

Was actually considering LIS>CDG>MIA>MCO in late Oct for ~$100 more for PS over LIS>AMS >MCO main cabin. But the layover in MIA is four hours and traveling with wife and multiple kids.

The old Gate 60 was decommissioned over a decade ago and I believe the space for it was redeveloped into a expansion for the Airside 4 CBP facility.

If you're going to do it, 4 hours is a wise decision at MIA. There are so many international flights arriving there that Customs can be a zoo.

I arrived there a couple weeks ago on a LH flight and was surprised how large the Customs area seemed to be now; it was larger than my memory recalled it to be the last time I arrived there from an AB flight years ago.

I have had trouble even reaching the Global Entry machines at MIA without a significant wait to reach the customs hall especially D/E (AA INTL arrivals).

I believe that they did expand airside 4 INTL CBP a number of years ago.

Air France is forced to stop a lot of their short domestic routes but DL is adding LGA-BDL and MCO-MIA? Hah.

I am not being snarky, I just honestly don't know what one has to do with the other.

I think he is just pointing out the difference between environmental regulations/philosophies in Europe vs. the United States.

This. Thanks.

France has regulated AF via law to stop short haul domestic routes (yet didn't include CDG so just how serious are they?). Meanwhile, DL is going to add 100 mile hops and almost no-one in their right mind would take BDL-LGA ever -- either as O/D traffic or as true connecting traffic because the second there's a cloud in the sky LGA is on a ground delay/stop.

MCO-MIA is in the same boat as the domestic CDG flights: international connections.
