When I was searching the database, I found this picture of the same 737 in NAS (it's the second to the right), but although it was a nice change from the usual CU Yak-42, I still have questions about this.
When did CU start wetleasing this aircraft? And how long might this lease run?
On a curious note, when they were trying to contact Ground for clearance back to HAV, they contacted Tower twice and twice they were told to switch to 121.9, the ground frequency. After the third time, they were actually contacting 121.3, which is Pavas Ground, and got no response, but then they got it right when on the fourth attempt, they contacted Coco Ground. Curious that with all the airport information they have at hand, they did not contact ground properly through the right frequency.

Quoting Miamix707 (Reply 1): That has to be a Spanish crew, not Cuban, therefore probably unfamiliar with SJO.
I know, but the point is they could have followed ATC instruction on the Ground frequency from the start and not make such a mess. Besides, I'd expect even a foreign crew to know at least the frequency for Clearance Delivery.
Quoting RAFVC10 (Reply 2): As I know, Hola Airlines will reposese the aircraft in a few days due to the great demmand of seats for the spanish summer season.
