In the paper today was a “league” table of state/national airlines and their attributes, or otherwise.
It was interesting to read that Europe’s “sick-man”, Alitalia has a better record on time-keeping than British Airways, and they also lose much less passenger luggage. They do however lose loads more money.
Still, the good news is that Ryanair is starting, in a couple of weeks, to fly from Stansted to Perugia/Asissi, some 25 minutes down the road.
Perhaps we’ll see you in the New Year.
