The wings of Italy, in other words. When Alitalia went bankrupt in 2008, at the height of the global recession, many industry observers thought it was the last wed see of a company that was haemorrhaging cash at an unprecedented rate. Relaunched one year later, the new improved Alitalia has retained its former position as the biggest operator in the Old Country. The airline is based at Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport in Rome, with its low-cost subsidiary Air One based at Milan Malpensa.
Passenger feedback suggests reasonable value-for-money is being offered, although the handover appears to have stuck the airline with an old fleet: many have commented upon the planes dated and dirty interiors. Italian in everything, then, save perhaps its sense of style.
