Never again!

Departure was scheduled for Friday 4 April. An eight-hour delay was announced, then the flight was put back to the following day, then it was cancelled!
No information was provided by the airline. The airline staff were very unpleasant. We were messed around, lied to, and they abused our trust. This airline does not deserve to be trusted.
And you should be aware that ours is not an isolated case: someone from the airline even told us "Ha, well, we often have delays of one or two days, but usually we end up taking off, unlike this time!"!
Not exactly reassuring is it?
The final word on the issue: went to ask Cubana de Aviacion why their plane hadn't taken off. Was it a mechanical problem? No...! Perhaps they're too embarrassed to reveal the real reason? Thank you to the pilot for saving our lives.

Not too bad...

People express themselves quite freely on these kinds of websites, but those who are satisfied don't say so often enough.
Therefore, I want to say here that, even though you basically get quite limited space onboard the A330, the four flights taken between Paris Orly-Madrid and Havana went well. All four were exactly on time! The service onboard was courteous and the standard was appropriate for the price paid! For the hard to satisfy, who want PREMIUM service at low-cost prices, there's always business class!! The planes are modern and in perfectly decent condition, and the airline is a member of SkyTeam Alliance, about which I have only positive things to say, based on personal experience.

Avoid completely

Departure for Cuba was on April 11. There was almost no delay (1 hour). However, regarding the trip on Cubana de Aviacion, I feel the need to say that my seat was ripped, there was no blanket even though the air conditioning was on high and the meal, if you could call it that, was bad. The flight crew was so unpleasant I wondered why they had chosen the job. They didn't smile at all, or even say hello when we got on the plane. There was no movie during the ten-hour flight. They passed out headsets, which they said were for listening to music, but the music didn't work.

To sum up: if you have to take this airline, I advise you to buy something to eat and drink in the departure lounge before leaving Orly and to bring your iPod and your books to entertain you. In any case, for my part, I will never take Cubana de Aviacion again.

Disastrous! An airline company to avoid.

We left after a nine-hour delay. There were no excuses on the part of the company.
On board the flight attendants were not friendly at all; we didn't get a smile from them during the entire 12 hours of the flight.

The plane took off at 8:30 pm and at 10:30 pm the plane was completely dark. The personal lights and the headphones for listening to music didn't work, and there was no movie to watch. The flight attendants had gone to bed by this time so you couldn't even ask for a glass of water. In short, an interminable flight. I've traveled quite a lot and this airline is one to avoid since apparently they often have delays and if you have a connecting flight you have a 9 our of 10 change of missing it.

Flight cancelled

We were supposed to go on the “Perfumes of Cuba” tour and, thanks to Cubana, we visited Orly on Friday and Saturday—April 4 and 5, respectively. There are very often delays with this airline. Our flight was cancelled and there was no trip to Cuba. A big disappointment because we had been looking forward to this trip for months…

Une horreur

Vol aller retour le 05 /03 et le 13 /03.

Escale à Madrid. Deux heures de retard à Madrid.

Avion vétuste, inconfortable, sans écran individuel pour 10 heures de vol.

Repas infect, boissons servies une heure après le repas ! Hôtesses inexistantes ou mal aimables.

Délivrance des bagages au compte goutte. Résultat : plus d'une heure pour obtenir sa valise à l'aller comme au retour !

Compagnie à éviter. Beaucoup de compagnies testées et c'est avec XL Airways la plus déplorable...

une compagnie à fuir!

Pour notre premier voyage vers Cuba, j'ai choisi Cubana Aviacion car c'était la compagnie la plus économique pour la période choisie (incluant Noël et jour de l'an) et je l'ai amèrement regretté !

Le vol était notifié direct à l'aller mais nous avons fait une escale "technique" à Santiago de Cuba (en fait pour débarquer/embarquer d'autres passagers) ce qui a rallongé à 14h30 la durée de vol, sans compter les 1h30 de retard au départ de Paris.

Lors du vol lui même, le service est minimal on a l'impression d'avoir à supplier les hôtesses ou stewards pour avoir une couverture ou un sandwich sans porc...

Idem au retour, les comptoirs d'enregistrement de la Cubana présentaient une longue file indifférenciée de passagers alors que toutes les autres compagnies sont beaucoup mieux organisées et plus fluides.

J'ai rencontré une famille qui avait eu 30h de retard (sans explications) alors avec 1h30, je m'estime heureuse... A éviter tout de même si on veux arriver en forme car les sièges sont étroits et inconfortables !

Très beau vol sur un Ilyushin 96

A l'occasion de vacances à Cuba, j'ai choisi d'emprunter la compagnie nationale cubaine, qui exploite encore quelques rares Il-96. Contrairement aux préjugés que l'on peut avoir sur les avions de l'ère soviétique, l'Il-96 était très silencieux, et les sièges à bord étaient d'un confort tout à fait acceptable, malgré l'absence d'IFE, fait assez rare de nos jours sur les longs courriers.
