Despite having had, what I considered, the most tasteful, if not the best, livery, interior design and uniforms in the industry, it simply couldn't outweigh the state carrier's overall shoddy service.
ALITALIA CLIPS IT'S WINGS. BUT NOT REALLY!

A few days ago at Frankfurt Airport, I saw what will probably be the last operating Alitalia flight that I will ever see.

A week earlier, I took these pictures of Alitalia aircraft at Rome Fiumicino, while taxiing towards takeoff to Berlin.

Admittedly, I felt a tad bit nostalgic while taking these photos - but only because I've known the airline all of my life.

Seeing a familiar name disappear can certainly wake some emotion.
Nevertheless, I feel absolutely no pity for the airline's long-overdue closure.

Unlike Alitalia's livery, interior design and uniforms - which I found to be among the best and most tasteful in the industry - [particularly Cabin-class] service was, comparatively [to other airlines], a veritable hit or miss; never consistent; far too often loaded with haughtiness.

Don't get me wrong, I've certainly had several delightful experiences on-board Alitalia flights. But they were far too few, with service rarely matching the looks of the crew.

Alitalia service was without a doubt far more show than substance!

Of all the 'world-class' carriers I've flown, and I've certainly flown on dozens if not hundreds of brands, Alitalia truly gets the worst marks of them all.

A British friend of mine - a management guru of the hospitality industry - did his utter best to instill customer-service-excellence in the training and retraining of Alitalia cabin staff members.

He made quite a bit of headway. The impact of his work was visible. But typical for much of Italy's state sector, investment in customer service, productivity and management ethics far too rarely takes priority.

The abrupt ending of Alitalia's excellence training program -quick my friend led - is a case-in-point of typical worst-management-practices of the Italian public sector.

And let's not forget the havoc caused to travelers by the airline's crippling strikes - hundreds if not thousands of them over the year.

Alitalia is officially shutting down. But even the newly founded state carrier slated to replace it, this week - ITA (Italia Trasporto Aereo) - will undoubtedly not fare any better. Because ITA will be nothing other than a rebranded, albeit downsized version of Alitalia.

Management will continue to be, for the most part, influenced by the worst-management-practices typical for many, if not most, state-owned enterprises.

I suspect ITA's management team - both led by Alitalia CEO Fabio Lazzerini & Co. - won't make much headway in breaking out of Alitalia's history of never-ending puberty.

The new airline will literally be flying on Alitalia's clipped wings. Not a good precedent at all!

More money will probably be wasted and I seriously doubt that service will change. Although I would truly welcome an overall improvement, I simply don't see it happening. The mere fact that ITA will make a bid to aquire the Alitalia brand, already spells doom.

The brand is a laughing stock of the industry. The mere attempt at reviving it only goes to show what kind of management mentality we're facing with the, so-called, "new" airline [leadership].

But state coddling and incompetent management undoubtedly stymied Alitalia's potential for sustainable competitiveness and it will undoubtedly stymie ITA's as well.

Although I do hope that my assessment is wrong, I'm convinced that Alitalia's-ITA's change of attire simply won't be enough. A mentality shift in its DNA is what is sorely needed.

Bye bye Alitalia. I certainly won't miss your service even though I expect that ITA will only be more of the same.

Note:
Alitalia's size and post-market-liberalization [free-skies-era] continued survival had only to do with the size and economic strength of the state that propped it up.

Note:
The fact that Alitalia was a state-owned carrier was not the cause of its demise. Most of the world's best airlines - FAR outbeating the best that the US and Europe have to offer - are government owned.
One can't generalize any system of corporate management. Alitalia simply represents the general state of the Italian state's management DNA. The Italian state railway company FS proves that exceptions do exist. FS is by far better managed and more efficient than not only Alitalia. It also puts the German railway company DB to shame - far outpassing it in speed and punctuality. It's quality is eben superior to that of Italy's private rail company ITALO. I've noted true improvements with FS. So, yes, there's hope even for Italy's newly founded state run airline. I won't hold my breath though!

ENGLISH TEXT :
The latest work bu Esther Dischereit will be launched Sept. 28th and officially presented to the public during the Frankfurt Book Fair, on October 23.

"Do not be afraid, tell everything! The attacks in Halle and the voices of the survivors", edited by Esther Dischereit.

Numerous victims of the racially, xenophobic and Antisemitic motivated murderous Yom Kippur attacks against a synagogue, a nearby kebab shop and others, on October 9, 2019, testified at the trial of the terrorist. Their statements, conversations and their personal portraits convey a moving picture of their courage, their strength and their resolve to go on living; while also asking questions about solidarity and cohesion in a diverse society.

In this impressive compilation of documents, Esther Dischereit places special attention on the legal and political process that followed the attacks.

New major US study on Jews of color highlights experiences of discrimination

Unbeknown to most people, many Jews of Color make up a part of the Ashkenazy community in some way (through birth, marriage/conversion or membership in a predominantly Ashkenazy congregation) yet are, far too often, not accorded the same respect and civility.

Den meisten Menschen ist nicht bewusst, dass viele Jews of Color auf irgendeine Weise sogar Teil der aschkenasischen Gemeinschaft sind (durch Geburt, Heirat/Konversion oder Mitgliedschaft in einer überwiegend aschkenasischen Gemeinde), doch wird ihnen viel zu oft nicht derselbe Respekt und dieselbe Höflichkeit entgegengebracht.

If there’s a silver lining to the recent death of Cleveland actor/director Dorothy Silver, it’s that she has been reunited with her late husband, Reuben – her soulmate and artistic collaborator for 65 years.

Rund 60 Prozent der Covid-19-Patienten in israelischen Krankenhäusern sind geimpft. Das sieht aus, als schützten die Vakzinen nicht mehr. Doch das ist falsch – und lenkt vom tatsächlichen Problem ab.

This has fueled anti-vaccine sentiment suggesting the vaccines are not working, and ca...

The moral bankruptcy of the Ummah

"The deafening silence of the Muslim street, Muslim governments and Muslim communal leaders all over the world teach us a critical lesson: At the moment of truth, the Ummah does not care about how painful the price of victory is. All that matters is humiliating the non-Muslim adversary, even if most Muslims are far worse off after “victory”."

Food for thought about Afghanistan.
An opinion by Rafael Castro

Editor`s note:
the biggest catastrophe is that the west refuses to learn the mechanism of Political Islam and pan-Muslim pride which fails to condemn it., Developments in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Asian Subcontinent are quite disconcerting.

The shame and guilt for the failed American Afghan mission does not stain America, but the Afghani people and their elected leaders. Op-ed.
