It is ridiculous how much fodder for my posts this airline gives me. A mere couple of weeks after the Italian PM Romano Prodi was quoted as saying that the airline would be bankrupt by January if it didn’t change things quickly, pictures have surfaced of Alitalia’s new paint scheme in service.

Yeah, that’s right. They should be fixing the friggin’ airline but instead they’re coming up with new and prettier ways to paint their airplanes. If there’s ever been a better candidate for euthanasia, I haven’t seen it.
Well, now that I’ve mentioned it, I guess I’ll show you the pics. It’s not much different.
That’s the old one on the left with the cheatline running over the windows. On the right, you see the new one with a lighter green running below the windows and the tail colors extending down over the fuselage slightly.
