U.S. Airlines Planning Flights to Cuba

U.S. airlines say they're eager to, and in the process of,  launching new flights to Cuba. KREM 2 News says this follows a new U.S.-Cuba deal that would restore passenger airline flights between the two countries for the first time in nearly 50 years.

Right now, only charter flights are allowed between the USA and Cuba, and travel to Cuba remains restricted for Americans. U.S. citizens are permitted to travel there only if they fall under several approved categories, such as educational, religious or humanitarian projects. Americans still can't go to Cuba strictly for tourism. So who wants to go to Cuba? I know I do.
