My travel agent buddy, John Dekker from Surf City Travel, just sent me this email that he received:

    It’s a pity that the process is still so complicated, but with the recent developments between Cuba and the US, it’s inevitable that tourism will happen eventually.

    Hey there. I am wondering if you’d need to present a round trip ticket to Aeromexico when flying to Cuba. My plan is to go from there to Europe, and to purchase that in Cuba.

      Good question. I’m not sure but you could buy a refundable return ticket and then cancel it if your plans change.
