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...

I hate it when I'm right...

Helping viable companies during this crisis is one, helping the not even walking dead is another...

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...

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.

The Italian government plans to take control of loss-making carrier Alitalia in a month or so, creating a new company that will have an initial fleet of 25-30 aircraft, union sources said on Monday.

Before the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, the carrier, which is run by a state-appointed administrator, was operating a fleet of 113 aircraft.

If they change their name, we won't be able to say "aircraft lands in Torino, all luggages in Amsterdam" :lol:

Alitalia may now get €700 million in state aid, as part of its nationalisation, which includes maintaining employment levels and absorbing the employees of other liquidated companies — like Air Italy. It seems that the coronavirus came at the right time for Alitalia!

Does anyone know why Alitalia keeps flying FCO-BRU-FCO on a more than daily basis?
Are those flights empty?, is there special health check control upon arrival in BRU?
There must be a reason why they keep on flying to BRU?
