CO has charter flights to Havana from MIA & JFK, don't know of any other US-based airlines that offers flights to Cuba. Your best bet is to transfer via a European city that Cubana flies to from Havana, such as LGW, FRA, CDG & a few other cities which I'm not sure of.

On Star Alliance, UA flies to Havana three times a week from Miami with a 777. Mexicana flies to Havana from Cancun and Miami, both non-stop. Cancun is daily, not sure about Miami. To fly between the US and Cuba, you need special permission, however, but it's fairly easy to obtain recently. I don't think someone traveling from Bangkok would be able to obtain it, however.

I flew to Havana, Cuba last year.
The best way for you from Bangkok is:
Aeroflot; Bangkok to Moscow and then Moscow to Havana.
Both legs will be on an IL-96 unless you fly Cubana from Moscow and that will be either a IL-62 or DC-10.
I flew Cubana IL-62 and it was great.

Dude, just go the Aeroflot route. (BKK-SVO-HAV)
It's so much simpler and you only have to switch once which means going through customs once.
Plus you get to fly on a IL-96. Only 10 exist and is a far more exotic jet than what the other airlines offer.

Some other opinions:
- Fly Lufthansa or Thai to Frankfurt - Connect on Condor (Thomas Cook) directly to Havanna.
- Fly Air France to Paris; Connect with Air France directly to Havanna
- If you have any chance to get to Madrid, you can connect on Iberia or Air Europa.
- Other opinion is via Toronto where cubana has flights to Havanna.
