Who Flies To Cumana, Venezuela?

This airport is located in Cumana, Ve, east of Caracas. It does not appear there are any commercial flights serving the airport. I checked several sites, e.g., flight stats, world airport codes, etc. What type of airport is this and who flies there, commercial, military, private? Any history?

US carriers pour inflight beverages from cans, LOTS of cans. Carriers outside of the US pour soft drinks, juices, and water from larger containers.

Are US carriers wasteful? Should US carriers adopt this practice?
