Flight prices USA <-> Cuba

Is $400-500 a typical cost for roundtrip Miami<->Havana or is that on the expensive side? The flights were connecting through Cancun.

I'm hoping to visit Cuba mid-May but am curious about least expensive flight options either out of Florida or Chicago.

That's probably the going fare for now. Who knows what airfares will be when airlines are allowed to fly scheduled flights between the US and Cuba?

ORD flights

There are flights from ORD to HAV through Copa Airlines and Aeromexico for over $600 round trip.

The reason for the high flight prices for charter flights between Miami and Cuba is apparently that the Cuban government, eager for revenue, is collecting a substantial landing fee for each flight, which goes into the Cuban general fund or elsewhere.

It's not clear whether the same is true with commercial flights, including the proposed direct US-Cuba flights that may eventually be implemented to the extent the woeful Cuban airports can accommodate additional flights.
