I saw CU-T1251 parked at the domestic terminal in HAV on 11Mar06. The engine covers were on. CU-T1250 was active, operating a flight to EZE on 05Mar06. I did not see the third aircraft.

I think they only have one a/c and this is used for Fidel Castro as a government plane. Would be new to me if they have one for normal pax operations.

Was this a normal flight, or a charter? (BTW - I do know Cubana operate to LIS usualy)

Will they use their IL96's now to Europe, such as LGW?

Hmm, it seems that it took more of an effort to look up these threads and to point them out as being a duplicate versus simply ignoring the fact that this was a dupluicate and covered numerous times before.
