    Can anyone tell me why Alitalia aircraft are showing an Irish registration prefix (at least the four I flew this week)?

    Many aircraft leasing firms are registered in Ireland, this is one possible reason.

    Alitalia have been on the verge of going bust for years. Deals with Etihad have saved them so far. The aircraft lessors won’t let the planes be on anything other than EI registration.

    Yes, they are all leased as is the majority of their fleet. I think only the MD 82’s are owned by them.
