You may ask why the last photo is politically incorrect. Have you ever seen an American flag in Cuba.

The next one is one the verge of being politically incorrect. This photo is at JFK

There are charter flights to CUBA on major airlines. Not a problem.

In 1981, Iraq was an US alley. Did the Iraq-Iran war begin yet?

UA AA and CO all have charter flights with there aircraft to Cuba from mostly MIA.

Canada has nothing against Cuba. Thats probly a normal flight to Toronto or something.
I could find many pics that say MIA but they are actully FLL. The USA even gave Iraq Weapons in the early 80's. None of these photos are wrong to me.

The CO airliners could have been diverted. Or maybe the 737 had to make an emergency landing. Interesting.

The CO probly is just from MIA. They have those flights Daily. My mother and Grandfather even took the flight. AA and CO dont only fly to Havana but other cities in Cuba too like Camuguay. These are normal aircraft in Cuba.

The AC DOES have scheduled flights from Toronto, three times a week, according to my Jan 04, flight guide.

I always thought there was a band between flights from US to Cuba. I know Canada has flights to Cuba. The thing is many americians go to Canada to go to Cuba and I always thought there was a ban on US ( Not The Company) Airlines from going into Cuba vise versa. That is why I thought when Castrol came back from a meeting in Asia he stopped in YVR to refuel. I know he stayed in YVR for a couple hours where he stayed in a hotel to get some rest. I think this was after an APEC meeting or something.

Yes Castro cant fly in USA and Cuban Airlines cant. Planes can. They are charter flights so it is the an american Airline. Even Genral Aviation planes can fly to Cuba but only MIA-HAV is allowed for genral aviation aircraft.

Speaking of Iraqi Airways, I remember they had a CTO (city ticket office) in San Diego back in the late 80s, which I thought was strange at the time.

US flights not only go to and from Cuba many times a day as "charters" but dozens also fly through Cuban airspace everyday on their way to Latin America. They must get permission from the Cuban government to do so. But the Cubans also get fees from US carriers for this permission. It is called overflight rights.

AirTran did MIA-HAV for quite a while as well. And did a few BWI-HAV flights. If they're approved government charters then there is no problem.

I don't think the Iraqi Airways photo is "politically incorrect" given the time frame. The Iraq-Iran War had begun and Iraq was an ally (oh how the times change).

American citizens are technically barred from visiting Cuba, but really all you have to do is take a flight to Mexico (as many of my friends have) and then to Cuba.

Trust me, AA flys to Havana. A slip of the finger and your bags are delayed getting to you when the agent accidently sends them to HAV (Havana) instead of HSV (Huntsvlle).
