    Coming in on a red eye OR late at night? After you grab your luggage, come back upstairs & get picked up from departures. It's a ghost town around those times compared to how busy Arrivals is.

    Stop your whining about Spirit Airlines. It's a cheap seat going where you need to go. It's easy to avoid lots of the fees with a little preparation. If you want a free coke go on AA and pay double

    Spirit can be great, if you figure out their system of travel, which is very simple - travel simple, with little to no baggage and you will have a smooth ride.

    People keep saying Spirit charges $30 for carry on baggage, well the price has changed! It is $50 when you arrive at the Terminal & $100 at your gate if you didn't pay at the Spirit counter/kiosk.

    Best way to get between MIA-FLL-PBI is Tri-Rail train. Clean and safe, $4 depending on where you're going. Just beware of the shuttle schedules to get to the train station.

    Picking someone up at Terminal 3 is a clusterfuck. Tell them to wait for you under a specific airport sign for another terminal so you don't have to fight traffic. 2 or 4 have to be better than 3.

    1000th tip! For everyone complaining about Spirit, the complaints are true. Pretty shoddy service but that is the brand they set out to make w/their insane $50 carry on, 40 lb check in limit policies.
