Routes cut back ?

Seems that routes to/from Tel Aviv have been cut back (I'm booked on a TATL transit through FCO soon)
This might have to do with the Israeli government denying access to residents of Italy....

Is this happening across other routes (TATL especially) as well ?

I flew FCO-NAP this week on an A321 and there was less than 30 people on my flight. I've never been on such a quiet flight in my life.

Same thing on my FCO-LHR flight yesterday.

This was pretty much unavoidable with Israel imposing a 14 days home quarantine to anybody who has been to Italy in the last month, including individuals merely on connecting flights through Italy.

Traveled LIN -LHR with BA on March 6th, it was very noticeable the large amount of Alitalia metal parked up at remote stands.

AZ will cancel all flight to/from MXP from 09 March. LIN will see a reduction in services and will be used only for domestic flights. Same for VCE.
All international flights will depart/arrive from FCO. Passengers involved are invited to check the website for policies regarding free rebooking and/or refunds.

From https://www.ilsole24ore.com/

Alitalia: da domani sospesi voli su Malpensa, a Linate solo voli nazionaliAlitalia sospende, da domani 9 marzo, l'attivitą su Milano Malpensa. Lo si legge in una nota dellacompagnia aerea secondo cui l'attivitą sarą sospesa dopo l'arrivo del volo da New York AZ605, con atterraggio previsto alle 10.40. Da Milano Linate - specifica una seconda nota diffusa dalla compagnia - verranno operati «solo collegamenti nazionali, con una riduzione di frequenze sulle rotte servite,mentre le destinazioni internazionali saranno raggiungibili con i voli via Roma». Da Venezia «la compagnia continuerą ad operare con un numero minore di frequenze i collegamenti da/per Roma». Ipasseggeri coinvolti nelle cancellazioni per la sospensione dei voli su Milano Malpensa e la riorganizzazione di quelli a Linate e Venezia, «potranno modificare gratuitamente le loro prenotazioni sui voli confermati o richiederne rimborso secondo le modalitą indicate sul sito alitalia.com», conclude la nota.
