    FLL vs. MIA

    All--
    I am headed down to West Palm Beach this coming Monday for winter vacation with my family. My dad is going to take me to either FLL or MIA. From what I've seen, it looks like MIA offers the best spotting. What are your thoughts?

    Definitely better variety of traffic at MIA.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    FLL is cool, lots of little Twin Cessnas and stuff heading out to the Bahamas, but MIA has lots of cargo, a whole lot of stored stuff if you want to nook and cranny on the north side, European widebodies, and Latin American airlines you've never heard of. Definitely MIA.

    KMIA all the way. I find the comparison similar to comparing JFK to HPN FLL is great but if you only have one shot and want to get the best selection of small, medium, large, foreign, domestic, pax, cargo etc., go KMIA

    thank you everyone for this tip as I had the same question myself and plan to go down there sometime next year- MIA it is(although I went in and out of FLL on American Trans Air 727's in '98 and it didn't seem to be too dull ops-wise)

    Let me know when you head down. I'm thinking of going myself.

    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
