Great pic. but I am dissappointed in the aircraft cabin config. notice there aren't any bins in the center and the side ones look small.

i wonder where cubana got the cash for a new airplane? mr. chavez no doubt.

The absence of overhead bins in the centre gives the cabin a more spacious, airy feel.

Looks great. Pretty simple and looks clean inside. Cubana is actually better than what I though!!

What an open and spacious cabin! Are those little things in the seat backs the A/C? Also, why is there a cover on the carpet?

Thanks everyone for your good comments!
This plane is a brand new Il-96 and the first of 2 ordered for Cubana. It was shown at International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS 2005 and because it is not delivered yet there was a cover on the carpet. I think those little things in the seat backs are either air-conditioners or small lamps.
As I know to buy this plane Cuba took credit from Russian government.

Nice to see, russian technic is upgrading. Working montitors! It's a big thing. Nice plane, but I think they should check the carpets on the floor.:-)

This is absolutely by far the most exciting Aircraft to spot. It is very unique because there's nothing else that resembles this beautiful bird. I really don't understand why more airlines haven't bought this plane, I mean although it doesn't have a center console, I'm sure Ilyushin can modify this plane to any customer requests. It's very distinctive and draws way more attention then the boring Boeings and Aircrash (I mean Airbus). I would love to see this Aircraft in person as I have never encountered this beauty. This is a great, clean, and exciting picture!
Thank you!

It looks fantastic. I would like to fly on it. It looks very confortable, and interior looks as L-1011, without middle console. I do not understand The reason european and rest of the world still buy american, european or Brasilian aircraft, much more expensive than this Il96.
