Picked up at 9 am today, pretty sparse options on aisle and EA. I don't remember what was where but it was:

3x Chevy Camaro (v6)
5x Dodge Challenger (v6)
1x Nissan Altima
1x small Jeep suv
1x small Hyundai suv
1x Dodge Ram 4door
1x Toyota Camry (base model)
1x Ford Fusion (base model)

Also 2 or 3 of some tiny little crappy looking Nissan car. Premier had a four door Jaguar that looked quite old and a base model BMW 5 series. I waited around for about 5 minutes and snagged a Hemi V8 Dodge Charger with the 8.4" uconnect screen.

Just snagged a brand new Fusion Hybrid Titanium trim. Very nice car. I put on the first 90 miles of that car! Also saw a Mustang convertible, regular Mustang, and the regular others in EA

Luxury reservation is most likely a Cadillac here, rarely a Lincoln - very unlikely to give you an Audi or BWM, and if you do get one, they will be stripped base models that pale in comparison to an Altima you can pull off the Aisle. I would take the Cadillac or Lincoln, they will be much, much better equipped than the Audi or BWM.

Just picked up in the afternoon at FLL. Only had 5 cars in Executive Aisle.

Dodge Durango (someone already was sitting in it)
Toyota Camry
Nissan Altima (took this one)
Dodge Ram
Dodge Grand Caravan

They pulled up a Jeep Compass and a GMC Acadia I think as well.

If you're EE and don't see something, why not just ask for the specific full size or premium car you want? FLL is one of the stations that will do their best to find what you want if you ask nicely.

Not a lot of choices but they ones they had in the ES were pretty nice.

2x - 2018 BMW 430i Convertibles
2x - Ford Mustang EcoBoost Convertibles
1x - Infiniti EX for whatever is it called now
1x - Cadillac XTS or CT6

They were in the process of bring up some typical junk, Quest, Journey, Equinox, etc. as I was pulling out.

Took the BMW with 1k miles on it...

Had a luxury reservation there on Sunday. I was offered the choice of a 2018 Cadillac XTS, Infiniti Q30, Volvo S60 (sedan) or V60 (wagon). I went with the XTS because it was the most spacious for the family. The XTS had under 800 miles on it when I picked it up. I feel right at home driving this last relic of the "old" Cadillac around South Florida.

These are pretty poor choices for the luxury category at this location in my opinion.

Iíve scored plenty of Audiís from the executive Selection and even the occasional BMW.

FLL on Thanksgiving today 11/23 was a total disaster! Brand new Chevy Impalas as far as the eye can see. NO THANKS!!!! I loathe that car.

Manager said now that they are going into high season we shouldnít expect to see many luxury cars in the ES anymore. He said they just rotated in a ton of the new Impalas.

I ended up taking a brand new Nissan Altima with only 63 miles on it.

Yes, pretty much. I did a one way from MIA to FLL. Then did a local reservation from FLL for one day. MIA to FLL can be driven in about 45 minutes barring rush hour traffic. I made a few stops along the way but my drop-off time on my receipt is 4:48pm.

I know you can drive that in like 30 mins. I was just curious if I was reading it right lol.
