Miami seems to be the worst airport. The last 4 flights we had coming out of Miami have had problems. It seems American can get planes to Miami from every where we have been on time but there is always a problem with the plane leaving Miami. After our last ordeal I suggested they may need to hire more or better mechanics there. Like most of you above we now try to avoid connecting in Miami at all cost.

Doesn't AA check your baggage from your destination straight through to Belize? I am coming from LGA to Belize via Miami and have flown AA very often without any problems. I have checked my bags and never had to pick them up and then go through customs? We didn't have to do that when we went to Negil, Jamaica - or the Grand Caymans. Our luggage went straight to our destination. I will, however, take the Capt. advise and clear customs all the way to the RIGHT!! Thanks for the tip. wink

I especially like the customs agents who sit there with an open passport pretending they're doing something, but their eyes are looking up at the ceiling. Meanwhile, there's 100 people waiting in line.

Simple: Miami is a crap hole city for the most part,why not have a crap hole airport.It is one the absoulte worst in the country.

Charlotte is an awesome airport. Run the way they should be.

Hi Jeff,
I have flown US air to Belize 24 times. Never once had a problem there, even with my DeeOGee. Usually just sail right thru. I think you will like it, and the Charlotte airport is very relaxed.
When is your next trip? We really do have to FINALLY get together for dinner.
Cheerz,
Vicki

Scubacat - I am not a US citizen and can only speak from experience, but I cannot recall any instance in recent years transiting the USA when I have NOT had to collect my baggage from the incoming flight and re-check it for the outgoing, with all the security implications. Yet only once was my baggage NOT checked all the way through. This predated 9-11, though the process has become far more tortuous since. I can't recall any other country where I have had to do this.

I'm confused - on maybe just too tired to comprehend the customs/immigration issue in Miami and never having flown thru there, I speak not form eperience.

why is the world would your bags NOT be checked through to BZE, if you are on one domestic flight connecting in Miami to BZE??? I've never ever had to claim & recheck luggage on a domestic flight connecting to an international bound flight pre 9/11 or post whether traveling to BZE, Italy, France, UK.....of course, if you are talking about a return flight to US, then that's a whole different scenario.
