I was taking a flight today from Miami and I could have sworn that I heard that the UA 767300 that was doing flight 914 from MIA to IAD had arrived from Havana which of course sounds too ridiculous to be true. Does anyone know though? (The flight was way late so maybe a diversion from S. America?)

Most likely a charter. United does those from Miami.

UA, AA, CO all have numerous charters to several Cuban airports.

So much for the embargo.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Yes, UA does operate a charter 767-300 into Havana. I actually saw it there when I was departing on a CO charter (to New York, on a 733 by the way).

And while on the subject, if ever in Havana, the airport is an interesting place to go spotting. There's a little uninhabited road that runs alongside the end of the runway (separated by a concrete wall) and if you park there and stand on top of your car (we were in a rental so we weren't inhibited about doing such a thing) you can compare the sounds of russian and western jets as they take off next to you. The difference is pretty amazing.

I worked the AirTran Havana flights yesterday....pretty interesting. All the ground staff at Jose Marti were great. I saw several AN-2s and AN-26s of Cubana plus a Mexicana 320, a LAN Chile 767-300, an AOM DC-10 and a TAME Ecuador 727-200. We're hoping to get the once-per-week contract expanded to three.

Who charters a 777 to Cuba? It can't be tourists...so who is traveling there? must be a lot if it is able to fill a 777...

ABC tours of Miami was one of the tour operators arranging the flights. At one point mid 90s, UA was using a 747 on some of the Saturday flights that would normally spend time on the ground at MIA in between South America trips.


My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.
