    Cuba

    With full diplomatic relations with Cuba, hopefully they will grant fly over rights to U.S. Airlines. Flying over Cuba instead of around it will cut 25 minutes off our flight time to Aruba!!

    I thought it was just military aircraft that were prevented from flying over Cuba (i.e. not commercial flights)?

    The only over flight we ever made was in the days directly after the Earthquake in Hati. It made our flight a bit shorter.

    From wiki. From 2011 things may have changed now.
    • Unscheduled foreign aircraft are prohibited from entering or encroaching Cuban airspace including disputed international water zones except when permission has been explicitly given by the Cuban Government. The Cuban military has been known to shoot down and destroy unauthorized aircraft without warning including a 1996 incident in which two U.S.-registered aircraft were shot down and destroyed by Cuban Air Force MiGs.[2]
