The other day, a 73? or small airbus flew overhead enroute to MIA. never have seen an underbelly painted like that one and was wondering what airline it might be. the belly was painted a fairly bright red in the shape of an elongated oval. couldn't see any markings on the topside or tail as a result of my viewing angle. but the rest of the fuselage appeared white-ish.

any ideas?

Maybe the pink Delta B767, N845MH.

Could you look it up on 'flightaware'?

It could have been a business or private aircraft.

Emirates has a bright red oval on the belly. Could it have been an Emirates airplane?

Not really an oval, however the red stretches the entire way under the fuselage on this one:
