Public tickets, that I can buy, as a non-Cuban.

Please don't post about how Eagle, and some other retarded companies go there on relief flights. I don't care. Noone else does either.

The real question is when I can buy my non-stop Cuba ticket on United to fly on a Skywest CRJ-900 from O'hare???

Also, how long will it take to launch F-15s to intercept "hijacked" planes returning from Cuba once anyone can buy a ticket?

If I was stuck in that sh1thole I might make up a story that my bowling ball was an explosive device just so I could get a plane, and go to AMUREEKAH!

I think I saw on the news last week something about the new administration wanting to reopen travel to Cuba, first they are allowing people with relatives--including aunts, uncles and even cousins--to travel to visit and stay as long as they want. Then expand on that to allow more travel to Cuba.

eh...
Yeah... Cuba is such a dangerous place... We should all fear the people there. What with all their money and power and all.

Republic will get a contract to undercut Cubana.

How do you say Scab in Spanish?

Republic will loan Cuba a cool $3 Billion and they will establish a new world order.

Yep-

It sure takes a lot of money and power to be dangerous....

If you had ever seen how impoverished Eastern Europe was under Soviet contol, you would have been very surprised..... Yet no one would ever deny that every square inch of that place was very dangerous to the west.

-P.S.-It sure as hell doesn't take a lot of money and power for some freaks to hijack some planes-no one would deny that is dangerous as well.

I'll take Cuba over any overnight in ROC ALB and various other upstate NY and Western PA.

Now just why in the hell would you pay for a ticket to be scrunched into the fuselage of an airframe that was really intended for one hour flights for three fracking hours?

Innertubes, broom handles and bedsheets are cheep. Buy a ticket on amtrack to Miami and build yourself a raft-the trip will be more comfortable.

Dunno.
I had an overnight in Havana once (broken airplane), and I wouldn't say it's any more dangerous than any other Latin American country. It's a popular vacation spot with a lot of Europeans and Canadians.

Dam that must have been a huge pile of paperwork. What broke?

The right main landing gear was pissing hydraulic fluid all over the tarmac. Yeah, it was pretty bureaucratic, but the company took care of everything. Beautiful country, impoverished but very friendly people.

time?
American Eagle has been flying Miami to Havana for years, US crew, but none of the passengers can be US nationals. Count on an hourly shuttle service from MIA to Havana and JFK-Havana as soon as it opens up. Have to dig in more, but I think Eagle has been doing the ATR to Havana longer than Gulfstream has been in there.

Haha.......... not only is it replacing DC-9s, it actually looks like one.
It IS a DC-9. The wings and fuse are built on the jigs from the MD-90 program they exported to China. All that is new are some RJ engines and updated avionics--and lead in the paint, asbestos in the seats, and melamine in the potable water.
