    I think I'll wait for commercial service and the miles. It should be coming in a few years. Besides, I've been to Cuba before, and it really isn't all that.

    I would not have guessed there are 190,000 Cuban-Americans living in Northern Texas.

    My guess is four years before it's commercial.

    Much longer if a Republican is elected president.

    I would love to go, but would definitely wait for miles.

    I was surprised to hear that as well (I did know about the large Cuban-American community in and around Union NJ).

    Charter operators are considering applying to also run flights out of FLL and TPA:

    (In Broward County, the Cuban-American community has grown steadily over the last 20 years, abetted by the large migration that occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew (many displaced homeowners took their insurance checks and came up north, where there was available housing stock, rather than wait to rebuild in Miami-Dade).
