It was Air Italy, not Alitalia.

This is only where I book direct with the airline though. Some OTA's only do a once a month settlement with the airlines so I leave even longer if booked via one of them.

So at the moment, i'm cautiously confident


I never ever call the airline until the first people have reported back they have flown with no issues. The way I see it, if I know i'm flying flat for less than £500 return I can forgo the best seats if it involves phoning the airline. ANY would work for me.
Today is day 30
