Over six months to answer a complaint letter sent to the Cubans shill in Canada, Hola Sun. Complete waste of time. Old planes, broken seats, crappy service, indolent staff and terrible food. No one knows anything and they obviously don’t care. Never feels safe and they will never see me again. I understand that Hola Sun switched to Air Transat...

As an alternative we then put on a coach at 230pm for a twelve hour ride to Holguin, where we were staying. We have made several attempts...

we were stuck in the airport when our flight was delayed. The board advised a 45 minute delay. No agents were present for an additional information. No announcements, no staff to be found ( and this is a small airport). People travelling with children were worried about having enough food/diapers etc. Many people had no CUCs left. The delay took...

Avoid at all costs! They simply forgot to attach a tag to my bag and left my luggage in Toronto, never delivered it to Cuba in spite of the report submitted the same day. We spent our vacation without anything on a small island (Cayo Largo) where you can't buy much. Fortunately I was able to recover my bag in...

I have flown with Cubana airlines on several occasions. They are cheap compared to North American carriers. However, pilots seem to enjoy scaring passengers with unnecessary maneuvers during landing. Cubana is also notorious for delays and don't seem to care much about making changes.
