Article says 250 people a day.. ha.. maybe in december, but elul / tishrey etc its more like 2500 a day, keep in mind people flying from FLL and WPB to other airports to connect to TLV will flock to MIA

Mia isnt a united Hub.

AA should've done it, they have a lot of connecting traffic from SA

They're probably still not settled with the TWA there.

I just spoke with someone high up at LY about this. He said they are actively looking into this but it's not final - they need to secure parking spaces etc and it's not a done deal.

3x a week

It's confirmed on ElAl's website. 3 weekly flights on their 777-200, starting in Nov 2017.
Too bad it's not on the new Dreamliner, but I guess they will keep those for JFK.

"By offering a non-stop flight along with EL AL's well-known internationally recognized on-board service, we are confident this route will be a success, added Mr. Maimon.
LOL

Chicago makes more sense IMHO. It's really beyond me what took so long to implement MIA. It just makes so much sense, both because of the huge Israeli expat population in South Florida, and for the connections to Latin America, since they do a lot of codesharing with AA.
