I'm based there and all the ATR trips are out & backs with some airport appreciation sits thrown in.

I'll bring you some jet fuel from La Carretta.

I nominate the delta first class passenger who stood number one in line for a flight to MSP just to find out his flight to ATL is from the next gate after scanning his boarding pass.

Oh Sam it's gets better. I didn't call for flaps up but that didn't stop this guy from doing anyways. Oh and we were -10kts for flap retraction.

LAX and MIA?? I'll bet you've been to NYC too!

Buzz...there's a song for that, sing along!

International Love by Pitbull & Chris Brown lyrics - YouTube

Here, I'll start: "From mister 305, Dade County, to mister world wide...We're International, so International."

I've always got that playing in the background when I make my Welcome Aboard PA's! Turn it up, you will not be able to get this out of your head next time you're on approach to MIA! Just be sure to start singing it as you put the gear down, it'll make the other guy nutz.
