More Cuba Flights Suspended

Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Perhaps if "people-to-people" operators would have followed the letter of the law, instead of making their trips tourism boondoggles, then there wouldn't have been the heightened scrutiny:

"Cuba Travel Services" announced today it would stop chartering non-stop flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Havana, Cuba. As an authorized Carrier Service Provider, Cuba Travel Services is licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control to arrange charter flights between the United States and the Republic of Cuba.

Recent delays in processing travel license applications have contributed to a 40% reduction in projected travelers from LAX in 2013, the only non-stop service currently operating outside of Florida. The last flight will depart from LAX on February 5, and return from Havana on February 6, 2013.
