busm4555 contemporary issues for management rental platform

In April 2015, Airbnb released news that it planned to offer its rental platform in Cuba after the Presidents of US and Cuba jointly announced their interests to restore diplomatic ties that were absent for more than 50 years. Setting up a business platform in Cuba will require overcoming a host of challenges, including spotty web access, limited payment options and the ongoing US embargo.
Is the Cuban plan an attempt by the company to circumvent the restrictions and challenges faced in its own backyard? Or could it be an early sign that the online lodging rental platform business model is unsustainable in the long run? What should Chesky do to ensure the sustainability of Airbnb in the long run?
