Ok to fly Alitalia?
My family and I are taking a trip to Europe this spring. We will be in Barcelona in the middle of the month and want to fly to Rome nonstop. The only options are Vueling, RyanAir, or Alitalia. ‘
Not exactly the best choices and since I’m traveling with my parents who are used to, let’s say, less “budget” focused airlines (they also both happen to be well over 6’ tall), RyanAir and Vueling are not a good option for us.
I saw Alitalia was given a bailout through May 2020 and just wanted to confirm as best as possible that flying them in the middle of May 2020 wasn’t the worst idea known to man…
I’d book that flight. I’ve been booking with them throughout their liquidation and reorganization. I don’t believe the Italian Government will allow Alitalia to fail.

So would I. FWIW, I’m always willing to risk some $$ on a shorter, less expensive presumably economy ticket (even times 3) than I would on a transatlantic ticket, especially in J.
And I agree with Gia – the Italian gov’t won’t let it go bust, but even if it did, hypothetically, Vueling and Ryanair are still options and both will have decent fares even close in.
