Didn't someone mention Tenerife-Havana on Cubana IL-62 a week or so ago?

I've got a friend working in the meteo office, she has told me that the day before the flight Cubana calls her to ask the QNH for the next day at take off time (in order to know how many kilograms they can load)
Can you imagine her answer?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

GO AHEAD AIRBUS!!!!

Not exactly transatlantic but for sure one of the longest sectors flown presently with a Russian built aircraft is HAV-GRU-HAV on a CU IL6 :


Sa. HAV 09:15 GRU 19:30
Sa. GRU 21:00 HAV 03:30

I wonder if they carry 2 crews of the same crew flies the beauty back....

Aeroflot does not use Russian aircraft to the United States.

Also, Aeroflot's flights to Havana are non-stop from Moscow with IL-96s.
