Anil, there's been a lot of confusion, of course. Here's what my friend Gay, one of the authoritative reporters in the whole Caribbean travel biz, says:

Ed, No, not non-stop, just get there with minimal fuss.

Anil, do you mean the wisdom of flying nonstop?

What is the wisdom on traveling to Cuba from here (NYC) to there ? In terms of logistics of travel regulations, and general stay ? I really want to do this before the coming hurricane season. 

There is great opportunity here to write a how-to-manual rather than a tour brochure for US Passport holders who want to get their feet wet in the cuban waters, and quench their thirst with a real mojito or two :)

You know, Anil, the Caribbean islands really pushed for this because they have good relations with Cuba. Your comments are absolutely right; leaders of those other islands will wake up one morning and say,

What were we thinking? Cuba is taking our business.

Ed: To answer your question, I am not a travel expert; but I do know data. And I do understand psychology. If history of travel is any indication; the caribbean islands will begin to see a drop in american tourists. Cuba will see inflationary push to basic commodities. If a far off place like Vietnam (JFK-NRT-SIN-HAN 24 hours of flight time) saw a measurable uptick in american visitors after normalization and now, USD has become an alternate currency,  then Cuba is a small island which will get the good and the bad of the mass american tourism. 

The question is, who will get landing rights, and from where ? 

my two cents. :)

That is good to hear. I am the only one of my friends who has NOT been to Cuba! They have seen the sights but they spend most of their time at beach resorts.

Donna, I was with a humanitarian group that brought donations to schools and clinics and visited must-see tourist sites. I stayed with the group most of the time, but like any good tour itinerary, there was plenty of time in the sked for solo exploration, and lots of time to interact with the people. It's one of many countries I want to visit again.
