Reply To: Alitalia continues to operate … for now.

If EZY buy the assets from a bankruptcy and pilots and crew have to re-apppy for jobs then it might work for them. If they take over the airline Italian Labour law and the unions are so strict and strong they will struggle to reduce the pay and benefits culture that has bought AZ to it’s knees.

Had the crews been more flexible then maybe Etihad would have made a success of it but their intransigence will likely see them out of jobs or in work at greatly reduced salaries.
