Hi. I am currently residing in Mexico City, and am planning to go to Cuba (Havana) in December. If I book Cubana, what are my chances of getting a Tu-204 or IL-62 or -96? I would love to be able to fly one of these Russian birds, does anyone know what equipment they use on this route?

Hi Jonathan, I am not entirely sure, but I think that CU's HAV-MEX flights are done with wet-leased TA A320s or A319s. It seems to me that in order to get a Russian aircraft you need to fly CUN-HAV. I am sure someone else will have more accurate information.

Have you tried checking amadeus.net? This website shows the equipment to be used on a particular flight on a particular date. I guess it is not 100% reliable, but at least it should give you an idea.

Good luck!


Eddie

P.S. I sent you an instant message.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I tried checking cubana.com and travelocity, and couldn't get a hit. Judging from the photos, its an airbus as of late. I understand why you would want to ride in a Russian built jet, I would like to do same. Never been in one......

A few years ago I saw a Cubana IL-62 taxi by the terminal. But I've been there a lot recently and I haven't seen their planes in a looong time,

need to fly CUN-HAV.

You are right Eddiedude, the Havana to Mexico run is serviced with Taca airbus A320 planes whereas the Havana to Cancun is usually Yakolev Yak-42 equipment with the occasional Ilyushin IL-62 service now and then.

Both Russian types I have seen many times indeed here in Cancun !

Hope this helps our fellow A.Netter.

According to Amadeus the HAV-CUN flight is Yak42 operated, and the fares are in the region of $200rtn I seem to remember. Hopefully take this flight in the Spring! Big grin
