Alitalia airline cancels flights


news.bbc.co.uk

Alitalia has cancelled a number of flights from Rome's Fiumicino airport, increasing fears that the carrier may soon go into liquidation.

The airline confirmed that a number of flights have been cancelled, but denied it had run out of aviation fuel.

On Thursday, a consortium withdrew a rescue offer for Alitalia due to opposition from trade unions.

Amazing - 6 out the 9 unions opposed a rescue plan so now all of them have there jobs at serious risk - this year alone 19 airlines have gone bust and it will only get worse;

what is it with all the greed lately? Lehman bros could have been saved last week - but the asshat of a CEO held out for more money - so the money to save the company walked away and thousands lose there jobs.

and here with the biggest airline in Italy - the unions opposed the rescue deal - so only time will telll before they lose there jobs , and a pay off and pension? not when a company goes bust.

It is sad to see the consequences if the airline goes bankrupt, already it is receiving state funding to keep flying and I cant imagine the plight of the thousands of workers working with altialia, lets hope for the best at this moment and hope that if things go wrong a resue plan is implemented.

A rescue plan WAS to be implemented - but was rejected by the `unions` - so the rescue plan walked away.

If the airline goes under then its a direct fault of the unions this time
