The FLL route was only recently removed from the AA timetable. HP, then US, then AA traditionally served this route twice daily (usually a mix of 320's and 321's) and sometimes with a third redeye...

I recall in the early 2000’s that US1 was FCO-PHL-FLL (or vice versa...). It changed with the HP merger.

I've definitely not always flown over the Northeast going to Europe from MIA - though I have sometimes. Madrid and Lisbon, for example, regularly route several hundred miles offshore. And because...

Diverted flight...back to origin

Last night I was killing time on FlightAware and noticed DL3325 DTW-MDT circled very briefly in a holding pattern just short of MDT, then returned all the way to DTW. Interestingly, an AA flight...

As others have said, pre-check is a must. FLL security seems to be the slowest (though not busiest) of MIA, FLL and PBI. In fact, I prefer to fly out of MIA rather than FLL as my door-to-gate time...
