As I am on the way to Cuba in November, I found out that the Il-62 is doing the Sunday HAV-EZE-CCC-HAV route, but could not find any other routes ops by the Il-62.

Has anybody got an idea about other routes?

Cubana's IL62 was a regular visitor at YUL, but I don't think they still operate on this route.
Last time I was in YUL I saw that the CU flight to HAV was operated by a TACA's A320 ...

THX guys.

Most likely I will get my self a HAV-EZE oneway, as the beauty is still missing in my list. It is about €500 which I think it is worth it.

CCC-HAV is not available as it is fully booked.
Anyway I will keep on searching for some routes as well as in Russia,as it won´t fly for so long anymore.

I think I need to become Putin´s best friend to fly regulary Big grin

CU also used to operate the IL62 on their MAD flights, but that changed a few years ago.

Not to change topics,but does CU still operate their tu154's? Did they operate tu134's at anytime? Remember seeing CU Il62 in YYZ in the late 80's early 90's

Quoting Georgiabill (Reply 8):

 no 

1 was scrapped at HAV (CU-T1224)
1 was destroyed at MEX in 1991 (CU-T1227)
1 was leased from Aeroflot and was returned to SU (CCCP-85223)
3 are stored at HAV (CU-T1253 / CU-T1256 / CU-T1222).

AFAIK, CU never operated the Tu-134.
Note that the Tu-154 was sometimes used by CU on the transatlantic route HAV-MAD !!!

When I was in Nassau back in 2002 I remember seeing a Cubana IL-62 operating the NAS-HAV route, but apparently the route is usually flown by the YAK-42 and AN-26 (is that correct?)
