Competing with not only with domestic carriers but also with foreign carriers, Delta Air Lines has to do everything possible in order to win the business.

All of the evidence, be it economic, diplomatic, or social, points to yes. We should lift the embargo. The United States embargo of Cuba has its roots planted in 1960, 53 years ago, when “the United States Congress authorized President Eisenhower to cut off the yearly quota of sugar to be imported from Cuba under the Sugar act of 1948… by 95 percent” (Hass 1998, 37). This was done in response to a growing number of anti-American developments during the height of the cold war, including the “expropriation of United States-owned properties on the island… [and] the Soviet Union [agreeing] to purchase sugar from Cuba and to supply Cuba with crude oil” (Hass 1998, 37). Bad sentiments continued to pile up as Cuba imposed restrictions on the United States Embassy and especially when, after the United States “officially broke off diplomatic ties with Cuba, and travel by United States citizens to Cuba was forbidden ... Castro openly proclaimed his revolution to be ‘socialist’” (Hass 1998, 38).
Sugar has been both Cuba’s greatest blessing and curse. Cuba’s sugar frontier was able to develop due to its environment, technology, and slave labor availability. It became an everyday lifestyle for the people that inhabited it. The failures of other industries in Cuba accelerated the growth of a booming sugar crop that lasted many decades and allowed for Cuba to become more prominent in the world.

The U.S. has had a trade embargo on Cuba since 1961. Though we have not removed it yet, president Obama hinted at a meeting that he would like to remove it.

Some of the most famous spots consist of Havana, Havana Cathedral, Castillo El Morro, and Cementario Cristobal Colon.
President Obama has already eased the policy against Cuba; in the opinion of the writer, the policy should be taken away all together. President Barack Obama even said in November that it is time for the United States “to update our policies” toward Cuba.
