Alitalia Flying Into The Sunset?

The Italian airline Alitalia has been in trouble for a long time. Things seem to be getting worse.

The Alitalia unions, in an effort to protect all of the employees, won't agree to any kind of restructuring that would cut into wages and cause some job losses. So instead they chance losing all of the jobs? Makes no sense to me.

But it makes sense to Lufthansa who might step in and buy Alitalia.

In the meantime, if you'll be flying to Italy, there is a very real chance Alitalia could go the way of Eastern and TWA. Play it safe and book a different airline.
