Tarom ?
Skyteam is consequently sticking to their strategy to combine all rubbish into one alliance....

Guys, Tarom is a terrible airline !

That may be true. But if I can find a number of NY-Europe award seats but they cant get me from Europe to TLV, and RO has BUC-TLV seats. You better believe Id grab it w/o thinking twice. Same can be say to ZRH, can get to AMS or CDG but nothing to ZRH but I can do say NY-AMS-BUC-ZRH again Id grab it.

Im not saying RO would be my 1st choice, but Id rather be on RO then not go or pay for the tkt.

Operationally, TAROM isn't a bad airline. That is to say, if you fly them you have a good chance of getting there in one piece, on time, and actually being able to retrieve your luggage. This doesn't necessarily mean that they serve caviar in Y or offer suites with showers in C, or even that they will bother smiling to you, but it sure beats a delayed flight, missed connection and lost bags on a "premium" carrier.
For short-haul (and that's virtually all they do), I'd take them over BA in a heartbeat. However, I would indeed think twice before flying on (and especially paying business class for) one of their vintage Rombacs or A310s to Peking or whatever.

But, why?? I thought RO has good airlines in Europe. It's doesn't considered any a common problems from RO. It's doesn't proved it more experienced on RO. I won't have your concerns about airlines is doing in Europe.
