Italian airline Alitalia may not be able to fly after Sunday because it is running out of fuel.


It follows a dispute with trade unions which the airline says has cost it a £750m rescue package.
The warning about Alitalia has come from special administrator Augusto Fantozzi.
"Up to tomorrow we have guaranteed flights, but not on Monday because no-one will supply us with kerosene," he is quoted as saying.
He was speaking after summoning the nine unions involved in the row for last-ditch talks.
Unless an agreement is reached he also warned he would have to begin dismissing aircraft crews.
Investors had been prepared to put up three quarters of a billion pounds to keep Alitalia flying.
But they pulled out of the deal on Friday blaming union intransigence.
]The situation comes after tens of thousands of air travellers were stranded by the collapse of tour operator XL.

Life is not gonna be worth living :roll:

Alitalia have been a risk for a long time - weren't they bailed out a couple of years ago..?

To be honest I am surprised, for carrying the flag for the county they were not cheap at all. Must be all those inflated wages for the fat cats:whistling:
