This seems like an odd route... I know Austrian has a big eastern European network. Are they looking at connections east? Does Cuba really still have many business ties to former communist countries in eastern Europe?

With a flight once a week, I'am sure OS is not aiming at business links...

yes, seems to aim at leisure. A good idea, it will also attract Eastern European.

And will crew deadhead in or spend a week in Cuba?
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

If they can deadhead to/from IAD or JFk, this could be the rational choice, unless I'm mistaken.

I'd imagine YYZ is more likely, not a whole lot of flights from HAV to IAD/JFK just yet...

This is quite a curious route choice indeed. There are no existing Star TATL links to HAV, and OS has no existing TATL links to the Caribbean, but apparently this is the route they chose.

I guess DME-VIE-HAV is an interesting alternative to dealing with SVO-HAV on Aeroflot.

You right, unless something major happens on that side by then, YYZ is the best option.

Does it really matter? Also how can there be links if no one actually start to link in?

They have to begin somewhere, and with the changes coming up at Cuba, this might represent a good opportunity to be there early on.

HAV sees SU, DT, and soon CA so there are definitely still links from socialism.

Could they deadhead on the LX flights and spend only some nights?
Do LX and OS deadhead on each others flights?
