Alitalia Returning to LAX on May 1, 2012

Jump to last reply

Alitalia nonstop flights between LAX and FCO resume on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, through mid-November.

NOTE: Alitalia is cramming more seats onto its newly reconfigured Boeing 777-200s:

From Alitalia's official seating charts, it appears that the newly reconfigured 777-200s will have 10-across seating in economy class (3-4-3) instead of 9-across (3-3-3). There will be a total of 239 economy seats. (Alitalia is not the only operator which has increased the number of seats per row on its 777s).

Economy-Plus will have 8-across (2-4-2), for a total of 24 seats.

Magnifica Class will have 30 fully-reclining (180 degrees) seats.

It also appears that a few flights between LAX and FCO, at least in May, will utilize the smaller and more modern Airbus 330-200s, with 28 Magnifica, 21 Economy-Plus (2-3-2 across) and 181 Economy (2-4-2 across) seats.

NOTE: The seating charts on don't show the new configurations.

Frequency will be as follows:

May: 3 weekly flights
June: 5 weekly flights
July/September: daily flights
October: 4 weekly flights
November: 3 weekly flights through November 14

Alitalia's nonstop flights will be the fastest transportation between Southern California and Rome.
