As people in Cuba mourn the death of longtime Cuban president Fidel Castro, Delta Air Lines will resume regular flights Thursday to and from the communist island.
Along with the cut in flight operations, American Airlines is also expected to cut down its passenger capacity on routes to Cuba, based on the market demand.
United will operate a Boeing 737 for the Houston flight, as well as daily nonstop service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Havana's José Martí International Airport. The airline was also the last US carrier to exit the Cuban market with the suspension of its Havana to New Orleans service.

"This is the first time we've had commercial service to Havana in over 60 years", Cody said. With a 50-plus year absence of scheduled airline flights between the United States and Cuba, there is no up-to-date data from which to measure demand patterns. Delta announced it would offer daily direct flights to Havana from Atlanta, Miami and New York - JFK.
In addition, American will downgrade its aircraft to smaller jets on two routes.
