Miami man who says he’s rightful owner of Havana’s airport sues American Airlines

In an anticipated legal case, American Airlines on Wednesday [Sept. 25] became the first air carrier to be sued for conducting business on properties confiscated by the government in Cuba, despite having obtained authorization from the U.S. Government to fly to the island. The federal lawsuit, which also includes Chile’s LATAM Airlines, was filed in Miami by the son of a businessman close to Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista who was the owner in 1959 of what is now Havana’s José Martí International Airport.  The airport was confiscated by the revolutionary government led by Fidel Castro more than 60 years ago.
