Actually, they do have cannon salute already.

It's on Facebook Miami International Airport page. Here's a link:

See for yourself.

Did they serve anything special midflight or just the usual bathroom cup of water and small package of crumbs?

True, it has been aggravating when they launch service on a Sunday and have the PR/Media events Monday (likely so that Airport/City executives and reporters are better staffed and not at family functions).

This may also have something to do with more than one new city launch on the same day. Palm Springs had a small ceremony Sunday on the tarmac with local reporters and airport staff.
