Thank you to the OP! I just booked this for August 9-24. Planning on splitting up the stay between Havana, a beach resort or two, and a colonial town. What a great deal!

Personal experience 4 years ago and with Cayman... they sold a "visa" on the plane for 20 or 25 USD... Kinda like filling out the old USA Customs form but paying for the form...

Thanks. Not sure that Cayman is the same thing as Cuba though.

All their business class seats on their wide-bodies start at row 11; no idea why...

I'm guessing he means on Cayman airways, not to Caymans.

Most airline try and align seat row number across aircraft and cabins. This is common on numerous airlines.

With Cayman is a reference to the airline that transported me from JFK to GCM to HAV four years ago. Plenty of passengers at the time used that route (either as self connection or on the same ticket)
Apologies if it wasn't clear, but it was a reference to the Airline as in I flew "with Lufthansa"

Thanks for the clarification. Were you told by the airline site that you would be able to buy the visa onboard? I see nothing but a strange 33.34 CAD on the ticket called "CUAB" in the the French version, and as "tax description not available" in the English version. Any thoughts about was it is?

So I just checked, and the fare is still available. I checked the other classes of service, and economy is pricing out at $462 and Premium Economy $964. So do you think they may decide not to honour the business class tickets if it turns out that this is a mistake?

My credit card charge is still in pending status for my March 2020 booking but my tickets have been issued and I was able to select my seats. Has anyone had the ticket charge post to their credit card account yet?

I think this is because Air China saves Row #1 for first class only. I think it's a prestige reason.

Same situation: ticketed and seats selected; credit card charge is pending (but thatís typical). BTW: How were you able to make a March 2020 booking? I kept getting an error message or bumped to a different page (upgrades).

March was wide open when the deal first posted. My guess is that they limit low cost business 'R' fare seats for each flight.

I just verified, and it is not listed on the ticket. From past experiences, the airline distributes the tourist visa document on the plane. You fill it out and it is processed once you land. There is no cost for the tourist visa for Canadian passport holders. You can refer here:
