if Snowden took a flight to Cuba he would have flown over US territory as well as other friendly western nations.
As we had seen with President Morales, getting from A to B isn't that simple.
Has anyone else seen a news on this?

Such a flight, from Moscow (SVO) to Havana, would not go over any part of US airspace. The flight would go generally west from Russia, over
Scandanavia, and then drop down to pick up a westbound north atlantic track, which is a set of prescribed tracks, using GPS or INS waypoints.
Somewhere east of Newfoundland it would have dropped off the track and proceeded Southeast, possibly using jet route G-437, to Havana Marti. No need
to ever come within 100 miles of the US coast. From Havana it's a direct shot South, over the Caymans and Hispaniola, to Caracas. For a map of the NA
Tracks, take a look at www.airliners.net...
