When I try to schedule flights between DCA and CUN it says, "You cannot fly this route because of political restrictions." I already have flights from BOS to Mexico City. What gives?

It's one of the distance-based political restrictions.  Flights from DCA can be no longer than 1,250 miles.  DCA-CUN is over 1,300 miles.  There's a guide to these sort of formalities in the Guides and Reference section.

Hmm I’ll dig it out the political restrictions guide
Here:
When opening a route, have you been blocked by a message about political restrictions and don't know why? This is the official list of open skies agreements and restrictions implemented in the game.

Default Rules

If political restrictions are enforced in your game world (all worlds except O1, O2, and S3- B), your routes must originate in your airline's home country unless an open skies agreement applies.


Airport-Specific Restrictions

DAL (Dallas Love Field) – Wright Amendment

Routes from DAL are limited to serving airports located in the states of Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. However, flights using aircraft with 56 or fewer seats (maximum certified capacity) are exempt from this restriction. You cannot configure aircraft that could potentially have more seats, such as a 737-800 with a maximum of 189 seats, with 56 seats in order to avoid this restriction.

This restriction does not apply on or after October 13, 2014 (game time).

LGA (New York LaGuardia) – Perimeter Rule

Routes from this airport cannot be longer than 1500 miles.

DCA (Washington Reagan National) – Perimeter Rule

Routes from this airport cannot be longer than 1250 miles.

Open Skies Agreements

Airlines can fly routes among and build hubs and terminals within each group of countries below. However, you still cannot fly from another country (not your home country) covered by an open skies agreement to a country outside the agreement. For example, an airline based in an EU country can fly between two other EU countries but cannot fly from another EU country to a non-EU country.

Territory-Based Rights

The following groups of countries can each be treated as a single country for the purposes of route/hub/terminal rights. Unlike open skies agreements, airlines based in any country within a group can fly international routes from other countries in the group. For example, a US-based airline is allowed to operate Guam-Asia flights.

This does not make sense as EU airlines in real life ARE ALLOWED to fly from another EU country to outside the EU. For example, Ryanair flies to 11 diffrent countries from Kiev, Ukraine, even though Ryanair is registered in Ireland and Ukraine isnt part of the EU. 

 

I think that you should be able to (as an EU airline) fly to any country in the world from any EU country.
