I went a couple of years ago, you could tell that the airport infrastructure wasn't quite up to standard. I know a few people who have gone there this year but I don't think they are there at the moment.

Can't believe I turned over to Sky News and all they're talking about is a Wedding when this has happened. Not even on the ticker tape. Disgraceful.

I flew in a turbo prop from Holguin to Havana about four years ago. As I was stepping on the plane, I noticed the tyres on one of the landing wheels was bald, and although in the dry it would not have caused skidding, there must have been a higher chance of bursting on a hard landing.

I think the maintenance of these aircraft in Cuba must be in question. What you see is bad enough, but what you don't see.....?

I flew Cubana Airways to Cuba about ten years ago and it was absolutely ******* terrifying. The plane was an old Russian one if I remember rightly and the lights on board came off and went on when they felt like it. Ten hours there and ten hours back of genuine fear.

I flew out to one of the smaller islands for a few days. On the way out no problem it was a new plane in good nick but the way back was an old Russian thing that was falling to bits.

I heard this morning that a party of 20 evangelic priests were among the dead.

Aircraft tyres are different to car tyres, it is quite normal for wear through X number of layers of canvas to still be acceptable.

Also they are often re-treads. Enjoy your flight...
