Since when has Meridiana switched to Milan as a hub?
I’m in an Italian dual citizenship FB group and a lot of Italians in New York used to value the cheap Meridiana (direct and non-stop) fares from JFK to Naples and Palermo. Now, though, all Meridiana flights fly via Milan. If forced to connect via Milan, you might as well fly a “normal” airline with better IFE/seats to Southern Italy.
Since when has Meridiana switched to Milan as a “hub”? Is this in response to the Qatar takeover?
I think it would make a good post, Lucky.
I’d imagine this has a lot to do with Qatar’s takeover, but also a response to the failing Alitalia. I’m sure the thought of poaching business from Alitalia as they struggle to stay afloat and keep customers guessing, is a good enough reason to try to direct some traffic through Malpensa
