Weekly LAX to Cuba tourists flights canceled

First it was Tampa who announced a few weeks ago it was cutting their tourist charter flights to Cuba by almost half, and now we learn Los Angeles is completely discontinuing its one and only weekly charter flight from LAX to Cuba due to the lack of passengers. Naturally, the operators of the LAX flights to Cuba are blaming OFAC for not issuing Cuba travel licenses to American tourists often enough or fast enough. This delay apparently brought their business plan to provide Americans who are curious to visit Cuba's human zoo and the Caribbean's largest slave plantation to an unceremonious end.

Special charter flights between LAX, Cuba coming to end

LAX — A Long Beach company says it can no longer support once-weekly flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Havana, ending what company officials say is the only flight to Cuba from a U.S. state other than Florida.

Under a special federal government license, Cuba Travel Services had been flying approved travelers to Havana under a charter agreement with United Airlines. The government allows U.S. citizens to visit Cuba to see relatives or for certain educational and humanitarian purposes.

Michael Zuccato, general manager for Cuba Travel Services, said it appeared fewer citizens have been receiving licenses, making it difficult for his company to fill its flights.

The final flight from Cuba - United Airlines Flight 1822 - is scheduled to arrive at LAX at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
