Demand for flights to Cuba has dropped significantly. Earlier this month, I wrote about how JetBlue had suspended all flights to Cuba (the last one flew on September 17th). United Airlines will suspend flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on October 29th. Now, Delta Air Lines has cut its flight schedule between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Havana’s José Martí international Airport (HAV) in half as it drops from two daily flights to one after November 4th.


Delta Air Lines has been operating flights to Havana 2x daily using Boeing 737-800 aircraft. These each offered 16 First Class, 36 Delta Comfort+, and 108 Main Cabin seats. The route was suspended in March 2020 due to the pandemic and had only resumed this past April. American Airlines also serves this route with six to eight daily flights in each direction. It will be interesting to see if it also cuts capacity.

Anthony’s Take: My parents and grandparents visited Cuba at different times. My grandparents went there on their honeymoon in the 1940s and my parents went about a decade ago.  I have yet to visit, but I will make it there some day.
