Yawn. Alitalia saga rumbles on. And on.


Is anyone bored of reading about the Alitalia “will it or won’t it be rescued” saga yet?

For those of you who aren’t, the latest appears to be that ANOTHER list of investors brave/stupid enough to be interested in taking over the ailing carrier is to be unveiled in September. I can hardly wait.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is reported to have said this week that the latest rescue plan for Alitalia would involve 5,000 job cuts. 

This represents more layoffs than those put forward in Air France-KLM’s takeover plan, which was shot down in flames by Alitalia’s unions earlier this year. Bet they’re kicking themselves now.

    I understand that you can’t wait that something to happen with Alitalia
    jonction with Air France/KLM.Even if someone doesn’t agree your
    comment because that is not the point.Like in justice people mistake
    agreement and justice.I think there will be an alliance between Air France/KLM and Alitalia but there is maybe a problem with Air France/KLM and the justice. I am talking about the Mont Saint Odile
    Crash, Habsheim, wich have not been resolved.I think that can be a
    problem with money. Some people may be hiding behind there desk
    as they mistake a lot, beacause they mistake peolpes personal
    comment and the truth.

    Best Wishes, William Davies
