Of course our first thought is not "is everyone safe," but rather, "were the passengers excited?" Hellothey're looking out the window expecting to see the tourist-stuffed slice of imported American that is Cancun and instead...Cuba: the forbidden isle. You just know that at least one passenger has uttered "well, this will be a story for the grandkids."
The plane sat on the ground for over five hours awaiting a replacement ferried over from Cancun to complete the trip. No, none of the passengers got to officially enter Cuba and no, they probably didn't serve complimentary Cuba Libres during that wait.
