It's Hurricane Sandy and it will pass through Cuba tonight and be gone by tomorrow. It's about to make landfall in Jamaica.

Durie:

When the tickets were printed Thomas Cook would be unsure when Cuba would be altering their clocks. They probably thought that they would go with Canada and the US who alter their clocks a week after us.

It now transpires that Cuba will alter their clocks this weekend, the same as we will in the UK, therefore the flight will arrive at 2.50pm. They have allowed 10 hours 35 minutes for the flight so if the flight were to take off on time and given favourable wind conditions it could arrive an hour earlier. Problem is though they never take off on time.

The hurricane will be long gone by this weekend. We just have to hope that it won't be followed by another one.

I'm waiting for a text from Cuba now with the latest weather update.

Here is the information in a text I've just received.

Light rain all morning, at least it's not hot. Rivers in Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba and Granma are all full.

Thanks Bellagio, fingers crossed weather will pick up once we arrive and the wind is on our side when we fly.

Here is the latest information on the yesterday's delayed flight from Manchester to Holguin rescheduled to depart today at 9.30am..

TCX244 09:30 Holguin Next information at 12:30

It looks like they have delayed the flight for a further 3 hours presumably waiting for the Hurricane Sandy to clear the Holguin area.

Although it's very depressing waiting for a delayed flight, I'm sure everyone

would rather wait and be safe.. Not much fun flying into a TS or hurricane!!

We are due to go on 7th Nov, fingers crossed...
