They will more than likely merge with US Airways. It is likely that the American brand will stay. Even in the unlikely scenario that AA goes bye bye United or Delta airlines would come down to Miami faster than we can say MIA and build up a very similar hub. Miami-Latin America/Caribbean is something every airline wants.

I would say Delta more so than United. Delta would love to set up shop at MIA, they already have operated a flight to London heathrow, IIRC. OTOH, United had pretty much bailed on South Florida (had pulled all service from Hollywood/Ft. Lauderale and West Palm Beach and had very limited service at Miami, and only returned when they merged w/ Continental).

What they need to be focusing on is making Miami International more English and efficient for travelors. It's like south American down there.

I can agree with the English, though MIA does need to be bilingual it is pretty much the most important gateway in the world to Latin America. Efficient, it has become. The new Customs facility is opening this month and the new AA baggage system is starting to run. MIA these days is one of the most user friendly airports in the U.S. discounting their subpar customer service. That's more the airlines then the airport.

MIA has improved immensely in the last few years. I wish they would spruce up the baggage claim areas and connect them better to the MIA mover, which goes to the rental cars and public transportation. Sometimes it's like going back in time 40 years when you go down those escalators. And then once you get your baggage, it's like you're shoved out directly into the jaws of the taxi sharks!

Admittedly, these are relatively minor complaints.
