Back in September, I told you that the first commercial flight to Cuba would take off from Newark Liberty International Airport.  Well, that flight took off this morning.

According to,

A Boeing 737 operated by United Airlines is scheduled to depart Newark Liberty International Airport at 10:18 a.m. and land in Havana at 1:53 p.m.
United announced in September it will have one, three-hour, 35 minute flight per day to the island nation from Newark.
