Last quote about Alitalia

Christine Ourmieres-Widener - Flybe Group
While half-year profits are lower than expected, I am confident that we are still on a clear sustainable path to profitability in line with our stated plan. The increased maintenance costs are disappointing, but we are already addressing these in the second half and remain focused on improving our cost base and reliability performance. Our sustainable business improvement plan is delivering benefits with the fleet size now reducing, and consequently both yield and load factors are

Ryanair is a very important contributor to the Italian economy, but they have made a big mistake. The shock that the airline has created has left people thinking that we will try to cure a sick flagship company with a medicine that will make it even worse. Those responsible for selling Alitalia will have to pay close attention and consider the best interests of the country and Italian citizens. We need to find a way to ensure that Alitalia stays alive, but with all the guarantees. In this respect, it doesn't seem as if Ryanair will be able to ensure

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We will be submitting an offer for the 90 jet aircraft, with their pilots, cabin crew, routes

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We'd be very willing to buy Alitalia. But I suspect... given we're the number one airline in Italy we'd be blocked under EU competition

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We would be willing to take on both the short-haul and the long-haul [fleet]. One of the aspects of Alitalia that is really attractive is the long-haul fleet, which has the capacity to grow very

Frédéric Gagey - Air France

It is true that Alitalia has been one of the elements pushing us to discuss the future of the joint venture, but I will not consider it as the main

Shai Weiss - Virgin Atlantic

The reason for this venture and timing is because it's a very good idea. The foundation of this transaction is pure

Franco Marini

I've waited for buses from three different lines for two hours and not even one has passed. I find this way of protesting uncivil, in the 21st century there should be other ways to resolve labour

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We've written to the Italian government and we've said 'look, if something untoward happens, don't worry, we will step into the

Aengus Kelly - AerCap

We would have to make sure that if there were any difference in the lease rental that we got from Alitalia and what we could get from the new lessee, we would do our best to be adequately compensated from the estate of

Aengus Kelly - AerCap

The only way they can do it is to over-commit all the time and that is why the order books of these guys have to be padded with inevitable deferral requests. And so what is happening with the U.S. airlines is nothing unusual. It has just got more publicity, but discussions like this are ongoing all over the world continually. We are looking at the aircraft and we'll continue to evaluate it. We are observing what is happening down there and speaking with the

Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei

The board has been very pleased with the calibre of candidates, and we expect to make an announcement in the next few

Corrado Di Vincenzo

It's not our fault the company is bankrupt. We worked with passion and dedication. The problems are in the management who didn't follow the right strategies. And the government didn't pass the right laws to protect our

Simone Filippetti

It seems that Alitalia workers have all gone nuts. Why did they reject a plan that involved a hard sacrifice but a chance of recovering to instead face the risk of a total company disruption and liquidation, and ultimately all lose their jobs anyway?feedback

Luca Bertoletti

Alitalia bankruptcy is due to bad management and #ConsumerChoice. Italian state shouldn't give any money to save

James Hogan - Etihad Airways

We have done all we could to support Alitalia, as a minority shareholder, but it is clear this business requires fundamental and far-reaching restructuring to survive and grow in future. Without the support of all stakeholders for that restructuring, we are not prepared to continue to invest. We therefore support the necessary decision of the Alitalia Board to apply for extraordinary administration. Italy remains an important market for us and we will continue to work with Alitalia as a commercial partner alongside our own presence in

Neil Smyth - Taylor Wessing

Many airlines, particularly in the US, have used insolvency processes to drive through restructuring necessary to streamline their operations to enable them to remain

Giulio Alesi

I haven't flown Alitalia in years. Do we need a domestic flag carrier? I don't think that's necessary these

Antonio Piras

I know people are against the state to jump in. But an electoral campaign is already on and this is a moment when anything can

Raffaele Di Giacomo

I am absolutely for Alitalia being nationalised so that workers can keep their jobs under decent contractual

Andrea Giuricin

This time around the public is very divided on the issue which makes things difficult. This is why political parties like Five Star or politicians like Renzi don't yet have a clear position on the issue, are not yet certain what stand to

Natascia Turato

It's clear Italians are opposed to governments systematically running up deficits to deal with companies in

Greg Curtis

Workers need to get what they deserve but at the same time it's really difficult when they interrupt travel, it really hurts the

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We can help them by offering them cheap feed, low-cost feed into their hubs ... but that means taking out aircraft, people, and that's very difficult politically in Italy. We are still talking to them. It is nothing other than a takeover. They have been very receptive. The outcome for fares depends on what happens on Brexit and economic confidence in UK and Europe, what happens to oil, and unforeseen security

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

As long as profitability continues to rise from 1.25 billion (euros) last year, in line with traffic, ... I see no reason why share buy backs shouldn't continue, absent unforeseen

Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei

We must ensure that the airline is the right size and the right shape. We must continue to improve cost efficiency, productivity and revenue. We must progress and adjust our airline equity partnerships even as we remain committed to the

Cramer Ball - Alitalia

It is vitally important that the airline's workforce and major stakeholders, such as corporate partners, suppliers and unions, embrace and accept the radical changes we need in order to gain the next round of significant funding from our shareholders, which will be crucial for our

Andrea Giuricin

The low-cost carriers are getting stronger, Alitalia is weak in Italy and Europe, is a tiny player in intercontinental traffic and has little money to invest. Either Etihad finds a European solution to Alitalia or lets it close up shop, although I doubt Rome would allow

Roberto Maroni

This wildcat strike will not be allowed to continue as it is a violation of the law. It's illegal behaviour which we will counter to guarantee people the right to

Andrea Cavola

The number of the workers is totally insufficient and has to be looked at again. The criteria used has to be revised; if things don't change, this will be the first in a long series of

Antonio Divietri

There unfortunately wasn't enough participation from the various players, and maybe not enough by the government as well because I didn't hear anything from the government on

Antonio Tajani

The loan should be paid back by Alitalia and not by the CAI consortium. Given the fact that we don't think Alitalia is able to guarantee this repayment we ask the sale of its assets represent their real market

Alexandre de Juniac - Air France-KLM

At the moment, Air France is in the middle of big changes, with very limited resources, and that means we have to be extremely

Tommaso Schioppa

A national flagship airline is something unique and that plays a key role in how a country identifies itself. But, by allowing it to join up with the world's biggest airline group it is a vote of

Flavio Sordi

It is absolutely incorrect to call it a strike. Pilots are applying safety rules regarding technical

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

With regard to the connections between Milan and major European cities, we're going to maintain a very full network and by revising the schedules, we can considerably improve the service to the Italian business community flying from

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

Alitalia is not ready to, as we say in French, to 'monter dans le train', to 'go in the train', not the aircraft, at the first stage. May be it will 'go in the train' in the second stage and we will have, of course, to decide this all together, Alitalia, and Air

Rocco Sabelli - Alitalia

There are problems to be resolved, and there will be plenty more to

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

We're very strictly respecting the Italian nature of Alitalia in all the agreements we've signed. The fact that the fourth largest European airline market – the Italian market – is now in stronger cooperation with the European leader – Air France-KLM – is obviously major, in terms of European

Vito Riggio

Alitalia has exactly three days to come up with a convincing plan to keep the license. If not we have to suspend its license because that's what the rules

Massimo Muccioli

We speak for all our colleagues. Everyone will turn up for work. No holiday-makers should worry. There are planes, they are flying. Certainly the administrator has some financial problems, but we will work with him to find solutions that

Guglielmo Epifani

It is unthinkable that a plan to re-launch an airline can go ahead against and without the representatives of the pilots and flight

Silvio Berlusconi

As far as Alitalia is concerned, the Chancellor and I are agreed that the best option would be a deal between Lufthansa and Alitalia. We hope it will

Raffaele Bonanni

It's a scandal. The government's worrying about the sale process, but Alitalia is going to be sold to people who just want to pay as little as

Giuseppe Caronia - Uil

We're conscious of the fact there's no alternative, so we're trying to work along those lines. And we do think there is reason to be moderately

Luigi Angeletti - Uil

We've done all we can to guarantee jobs for the majority of workers at Alitalia. We have also guaranteed the rest 80 percent of their salary, a condition unique to other workers in

Italo Bocchino

The government's plan will not only save Alitalia, which is not going to find a buyer in its current state, but will re-launch it as a major European

Paolo Ferrero
