Buyer Beware:
Alitalia is back in bankruptcy
If you have any Alitalia flights coming up in the next few months, you’re probably not going to be affected. But, it’s wise to have a backup plan anyways. If you have a flight further out, you might want to look into alternatives now, so you aren’t left stranded without a flight closer to your trip.

You could at least have changed some of the words to try and make it look like a post you wrote, rather than copying and pasting the last paragraph from a blog!

If they can't refund a basic ticket then I wouldn't trust them beyond this.
Yup - had plenty of issues getting my money back from them after the FLR - DUS error fare last year. Took about three months to get my money back after they agreed to a refund.

Thanks to the OP for posting.

To prevent against this issue, plate it on 006 stock or another non-bankruptcy ST JV carrier.

I plated the FLR-DUS on 006 stock and was able to fly it no problem.

Next time they come up with a crazy 'get rich quick' error fare, I will be doing this!

I'd love to know what on earth he meant with all this 006. It looks like English but I don't understand a word. Could you be a love and translate

Alitalia is living on borrowed time. I wouldn't leave it long to avail yourself of this fare.

006 is the prefix of all Delta issued eticket numbers. So, it means they ticketed their flights through Delta.

Change me plagiarism? I will make sure use the quotation marks next time. You are really idle, find a real job and spend your time.

Some, although I have no idea how many, did slip through the net according to the thread in the Mileage Run Discussion forum. I still have a live one for next month which I really need to get around to booking positioning for!
