US citizen. I wish to fly LAD (Angola) to HAV (for the novelty and it's a convenient route) then continue on to TPA (home) on a direct WN flight.

Will I have any trouble booking/boarding/arriving?

With the new restrictions, will WN strand me in HAV because I don't meet their qualifications for travel? Will CBP be upset? I have Global Entry btw.

What "new restrictions"? Were you planning on coming to Cuba on a cruise from the US? Were you planning on coming with an organized US based tour group and using P2P as your OFAC travel reason? Those are the only travel situations effected. Read some more travel forums online to see that hundreds, if not thousands, of US passport holders and others departing from the US and returning there, are traveling with no problems. Btw, it is not CBP's job to . perform audits on travelers in US airports.

BTW, in a few weeks I'll be staying at Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana and Iberostar Grand Hotel Trinidad. My understanding is that both of these hotels are on the no-go list under American regulations. If anyone would like to report me to US authorities, please feel free to do so. I would enjoy the opportunity to challenge the validity of the applicable federal regulations.

There seems to be enough space on the flights to Havana, and prices for fares don't seem to have gone up (althought hey probably will for the actual holidays as they have been wont to do) since the shut down of all non-Havana flights.
