One of the articles of this month's edition of the Italian "Travelling Interline" magazine makes an interesting link between a nation's general economy and its flag carrier profits. Positive cases mentioned: Ireland & Ryanair and Spain & Iberia. Negative case: Italy and Alitalia.

The article goes on saying that an airline needs to keep the government and its politics out of the business to make any achievement. Do you agree with such statements? Is this really all an airline can do to avoid a crisis or something more is needed?

If a nation's economy influences its airline trend (both positively and negatively) so the government is indeed involved in this process. How can airlines reconcile business revenue and political choices?
