Ann1, unfortunately the Italian government CAN'T bail out the airline anymore, as per European Union rules. That's the big problem that has everyone concerned. They're on their own now.

Hagen: Then I guess it's buyer beware because insurance companies won't cover it. The only hope one has is the CC companies. Alitalia is also impossible to deal with for loss claims so the points I have I'm using on code share airlines next year. I've had my fill of their problems.

I flew Alitalia from NYC to Milan to Bologna and back and had an overall great experience. Flying over - the passenger next to me and I both agreed that the dinner was actually pretty good. The personal screen console didn't work properly but I was happy sleeping and reading. When coming back, checking in at Bologna was a bit frustrating but the airplane had really comfortable seats for economy (different than when flying over) - my personal screen hand held device was broken but once again I was happy to sleep and read. Luggage wasn't lost either way - I'll definitely fly Alitalian again.
