Alitalia Auction Going Down in Flames

Alitalia, Worst Airline Ever

Alitalia just loves being in the news, but not in a good way. I just don’t get it. Someone please put this old dog out of its misery.

Well, now Air One has pulled out as well and according to Reuters, “Transport Minister Alessandro Bianchi has said [MatlinPatterson] has shown few ‘signs of life.'”

Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for this sad, sad airline. Someone, please pull the plug.
