Flew Economy Class
I have flown with Cubana 3 times to Havana. Once from Mexico and twice from Madrid (2022 and today).the 3 flights where on time and checking in goes smoothly. Nice is that a lot of luggage is allowed. The personnel is friendly. The planes are acceptable, well cleaned. Leg space is more than average. With for me about 25cm free knee space. I can stretch my legs fully. Prices are transparent. They are always the same no matter when you book. Prices are sometimes similar and sometimes well below competition. Food is like in most airlines. In flight entertainment is via free wifi on your phone, you can watch movies, but who needs it?

Flew Economy Class
Definitely NOT recommended for punctuality : I (an friends) used it repeatedly between Republica Dominicana and Cuba (FOR LACK OR ALTERNATIVES) and take-off times are famous to be totally unpredictable …
COST too is definitely not low: Rep. Dom. to Cuba (or vice-versa) tend to cost very close to economy-seats for flying across the atlantic !
All the rest is fine enough: planes look reasonable, and personnel looks OK.

We had never heard of this airline prior to booking our trip. When our travel agent assured us that this airline was safe and reliable, we trusted in her expertise. The day of departure ran smoothly, and the flight was on time. However, as soon as we stepped on the plane, it was dirty, small, old, and extremely uncomfortable. Hardly any leg room, and absolutely no in-service entertainment, making our flight to Varadero very unpleasant. At this point we had decided we are never flying this airline again. The day of returning back to Toronto, we arrived at the airport at our usual time, 3 hours prior, and the check in process was normal. We waited for 2 hours for our flight that was scheduled to depart at 8:15pm. As the time was approaching, we noticed that the plane hadn’t yet arrived, which was odd given that every other plane was arriving at least 1 hour prior to departure. At roughly 8:45pm, they finally updated the screen at the airport stating our flight delay of 3 hours, making our departure now at 11:05pm. All passengers were evidently upset, as we were now at the airport for ~5 hours, as we watched roughly 10 flights depart to Toronto (our destination) throughout

In early November 2015 I flew Cubana Air return from Toronto to Cayo Coco and had the best flight experience in a number of years. If you are looking for exceptional leg room, great inflight service and an appreciation for your hard earned travel dollars, you may want to consider Cubana. I admit that I was apprehensive in booking this all inclusive vacation through Hola Sun because their air carrier was Cubana but any apprehension is no more.
In addition the plane was clean, the seats were free of any stains or rips and boarding at both Toronto and Cayo Coco was organized and professional.
If you do decide to book a flight with Cubana, it really is worth it to get the “club class” upgrade costing $120.00 Canadian per leg. It was first class fantastic with a very good hot meal, excellent drink service and service beyond compare. Unfortunately the “club class” is only available for upgrade to at the airport upon check in…not available during pre-booking.
If you have already booked with Cubana and read negative reviews about the airline, don’t be concerned. I am a frequent flyer and I had nothing whatsoever to complain about.

with 24 hrs delay out of havana to madrid…good attention, information and service…only that the company does not care for your connections even though they signed under the montreal protocole do not comply with it….
i had to buy other tickets and hotel in madrid..careful with this and in the event of a delay more than 4hrs, keep all your tickets boarding vouchers etc…because you have to go via demanding the airline in the tribunals
