The following was on Ryan Air’s Italian website with a photo of Italian Reforms Minister and Northern Leage party leader Umberto Bossi. This photo of Bossi was taken when he flipped “the bird” at the Italian National Anthem.
Supports the high tariffs of Alitalia
Supports the frequent strikes of Alitalia
Doesn’t care about Italian passengers
Alitalia is Italy’s flag carrier airline and has been having financial problems for a long time now. The Italian government in June gave Alitalia a 300 million euro loan.
I’ve flown Alitalia only once because they are the only airline that has a direct flight from Milan Malpensa to Chicago O’Hare. I now refuse to fly Alitalia for many reasons. Mainly because of their financial situation and many strikes. You MAY make it to your destination but who knows if you’ll make your return flight.
