I thought they stopped flying transatlantic with the Il-62 (LIS, LPA). Even with Il-96s I'd love flying Cubana to Cuba. Their website www.cubana.cu isn't much of a help finding schedules etc so far. Anyone know if there's a website with booking options?
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Quoting A388 (Reply 4): When using its own aircraft, I think CU only flies scheduled to MAD and charter flights to LIS but no other destinations in Europe. Maybe someone else has more insight in this.
To my knowledge Cubana only uses the IL-96 to MAD once or twice a week, then they either fly the chartered Air Europa 767-300 the rest of the week or code-share on Air Europa's A330-200 flight. I believe LGW and ORY are scheduled from HAV using the chartered Air Europa 767-300.
Back when Cubana leased the Novair A330-200 and Air Atlanta 747-400 the routing was HAV-MAD-ORY-MAD-HAV.
As for the IL-96 it looks like it is used to EZE and MAD as well as other destinations in South American I'm assuming.

Quoting AlitaliaMD11 (Reply 9): And if I am correct I believe the chartered Air Europa 767-300 is EC-JJJ
That's right, but one week out of each three EC-JJJ is operating Air Europa flights, being changed the next monday and going back to Cubana's operation. as I know, these flights are being operated using CU's cabin crew.
IIRC, before having the UX 767-300, Cubana used in their MAD flights an AOM DC-10, later on it became into a veteran JAT DC-10 and finally the Novair A332 (SE-RBG), which went to Air Madrid once CU started using their own metal and the UX B763.

Don't forget the Air Atlanta 747-400 TF-AMI that operated for a short while.

The 767 operations of Cubana are operated by UX (as you said) and BP wet-leased aircrafts. The flights to MXP, FCO and ORY are operated by the Italian airline. The flight to UK are UX.

Not that I am aware of. I believe the only direct connection between Cuba and Russia is operated by Aeroflot with 767-300 aircraft. The flight used to be operated by IL-96 aircraft which is what I saw back in 2002 when I visited Cuba.
...so how many have crashed, how many fatalities have their been and how many major disasters have involved them? Hmm, none me thinks, funny that. Yes, they have some issues and were withdrawn until they could be checked and amended which is the only sensible thing to do, but just because they are Russian does NOT mean that they are going to be death traps which keep falling from the sky. Get yourself out of such a stupid mindset, it's record is on a par with the 777 and A340.
