      Miami International airport - departure with American Airlines

      by Chinggis_n_Borte Online Now Nov 7, 2014 at 5:55 AM


      Tomorrow we are flying from MIA to Jamaica with American Airlines.
      We plan to catch the bus J to MIA.
      Our Itinerary does not indicate which Terminal to go to. Other flights on our itinerary specify a departure or arrival terminal, but not this one.
      We checked American Airlines' website and it indicates our boarding gate will be D36.
      And it appears that AA uses a couple of terminals?

      Our questions:-

      When the J bus arrives at MIA, do we have to get other transport to a particular terminal to check in/ drop off our bags at AA? (The difficulty is that our itinerary does not specify a terminal).

      All advice welcome.

      Thank you

      Any general help and advice?

      by MartinK35 Online Now Oct 18, 2014 at 1:10 PM

      Hiya all, or should I say "y'all"? Actually that's not my question so I'll get to the point. I'm a little British guy from London arriving in Miami by Amtrak at 6:55pm on a Sunday evening. I have a flight to Nassau, Bahamas a day and a half later on Tuesday from MIA International Airport at 2:05pm so I'll be staying for 2 nights. I know I don't have time to see and do everything in a day but what highlights do you recommend and which neighbourhoods should I look at for hotel accommodation? I have a budget of about $160 per night. I know this question is very vague and I now know what people in the London and Heathrow forums feel like when faced with the myriad of possibilities to do in a huge city with not a lot of time.

      I do apologise to the good people of Miami for not making it my primary destination but any advice and suggestions would be very welcome. I'm not a huge fan of just sitting on the beach but I do love art and bars with live music.

      Two days + NBA game

      by glen006 Online Now Oct 12, 2014 at 11:13 PM

      Hi guys,

      Myself and my wife (Australian, early 30's) will be staying in Orlando in April, and planning to go to Miami for 2 days (one night).

      I'm thinking of hiring a car, leaving real early the first day and arriving back late the second. Are there any better options?

      Also, what should we do? I'm thinking South Beach obviously but is it worth doing a city tour or something as well? Any other must-see-and-do's?

      I am a Magic fan and have got tickets to a Heat v Magic game. Obviously they are rivals and I'm wondering about etiquette. Is it cool to wear Magic merchandise or cheer for them? I've been to a lot of football (soccer) matches in England and Europe where away team fans need to keep their head down. Obviously I know to be respectful, but should I not wear any Orlando stuff?

      Also any advice about cool restaurants or pubs/bars (not into nightclubs) would be awesome, I really want to try a southern BBQ place!

      Thanks in advance!

      Does anyone know if I will be able to hop off the train on route to Miami for a quick ciggie? Obviously not while it's still moving but during it's 15 minute stop in Orlando and at other stations along the way? 8 hours is a long time on a train without a nicotine fix.

      Hello! I am heading to Miami in November and am hoping to find an Everglades tour that includes a canoe or kayak rental instead of an air boat tour. Any ideas? I'm touring solo and won't have a car available, so something that offers hotel pickup from downtown Miami would be ideal. Thanks for your help!

    • Airport immigration lines, timing

      by jeanfinney Online Now Apr 1, 2014 at 9:31 PM

      Hi - I am an American citizen; I would be re-entering the country from Guatemala. My preferred ticket choice would go through Miami and I would have, if all is on time, one hour and forty minutes. In the past it was not necessary to collect one's bags in Miami, is this still true? Some friends going to Nassau from Gua just missed their connection, two hour immigration line, but they are not American (Kiwi, Aussie) - Is there a special line for American citizens? what do you think of this transit time? thanks!

      Would somebody recommend some restaurants/cafes in Miami and surrounding area? I'm looking for some smaller, more authentic places and especially ones that are not available outside of that area. It could be chain restaurants as well. Last time I was in Miami I tried Giraffas, 100 Montaditos, and Umami Burger. These places are not available where I live (New Jersey.) I'm pretty much looking for something that I cannot find at home. I hope this is not confusing.
