I don't think so to build again what Alitalia is would be quite impossible today .
It has to be a national project that involves a lot of cash a state can only assume.

I'm not agree an airline is a strategic industry sure for a country like Italy doesn't have to be profitable in my opinion.
If Alitalia went bust a few years ago as it should have, Air Italy would have been Italy's national carrier by now...

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Corona is an excellent opportunity for the Italian government (and/or Alitalia's administrators) to do what has to be done. Close it down, blame it on the virus. My 2 cents: That should be done, but they'll do exactly the opposite. They'll use the virus as an excuse to pump in even more money... Ch...

Re: Transavia to fly from BRU with 2 Boeing 737s in Summer 2020

That is a crazy and ridiculous rebooking indeed. Can they just reschedule your booking to a flight that will be operated two days later? I hope you can cancel and get a full refund. Unless you are a real avgeek and want to fly to Verona and back just for fun. But that should be your call, not their...

And Transavia reduced already the schedule for Verona from 3 weekly to 2 weekly, but no problem!

They rebook you automatically to the best the computer can find... see below...I really gonna do a lot of business there... in 40min...

Good old Brussels Airlines to VCE, here I come...

I would have chosen 2x4x3 or 3x4x2.
No doubt because of balance. The seating you propose would certainly be felt on the flight deck...
