Alitalia LAX flights Resume May 1, 2015

Alitalia will resume nonstop seasonal FCO-LAX-FCO flights on May 1, using Boeing 777-200ER aircraft with 293 seats in three classes of service.

During May, flights will operate five times weekly, increasing to daily flights for the June through September period, then reducing in October.

The greater frequency of May flights compared to two years ago is justified by Alitalia's very impressive overall statistics for 2014 on this route: according to official LAX airport authority statistics, 82,265 passengers were transported in both directions on 308 flights from the beginning of May to the middle of October, equating to an average overall passenger load of 91%. That is a 7.5% increase over 2013, when 76,480 passengers on 298 flights were transported (88% average load factor).

So, more people are flying Alitalia between LAX and FCO. Let's see whether this trend continues for 2015.

Here is a seating chart of Alitalia's 777:
