Well letting us know the airline might help. :-)

And how many hours equals "a few" in this case?

Leave luggage with hotel. Walk somewhere nearby for lunch. Head for the airport at 3:30.

Was hoping for someone who knew what is the earliest time we can drop off our bags at airport and check in,would rather be at airport than around hotel area

5 hours, at least. I say that because they list a few airports where they only allow checking bags 4 hours in advance. Miami isn’t one of those. So presumably they’ll accept baggage at Miami 5 hours before departure. Or longer.

“Airports with checked bag limits

You can't check bags more than 4 hours before departure when flying from:

Denver, Colorado (DEN)

Fort Lauderdale (FLL)

Las Vegas (LAS)

Orlando (MCO)

Salt Lake City (SLC)

Seattle (SEA)”

Miami to Sydney via FL - Does FL mean Fort Lauderdale? Didn't realise there were flights from FL to Syd.

Would assume you are going via DFW?

There isn’t much to do at the airport or nearby. If I was forced to spend an extended time there I would get Hilton’s shuttle and go have a few drinks at their pool bar.

You want to spend 5 hours at the airport ? Unless you have access to the AA lounge or another lounge why would you want to do that

Since AA has a large operation at MIA. I guess you can check out and head to the airport and they will check your bags right away
