Quoting EI321 (Reply 4): And I presume they own some of Alitalia's aircraft.
They basically for the important part of the AZ fleet; most Magnificent Sevens, and Embraers have an EI-reg. The old metal (M80's, 767, etc) is still I registered. Flew I-DISO this year twice (772) and the bird looks quite worn from the inside.
Anyway, it's a matter of time before we say "grazie e arrivederci" to AZ anyway

Just checked JP Airlinefleets 05/06, and EI-CRM is listed as leased from GECAS (listed as GECA, General Electric Commercial Aviation, ommitted the Services). The EI- registered aircraft in AZ's (incl AZ express) fleet break down to the following lessors:
ATR 72-202: Tarquin Ltd.: EI-CLB/CLC/CLD/CMJ (all from this subtype, -500's are I- registered and from different lessors or owned)
Boeing 767-300/ER (other 763's owned or leased from AWAS, SALE) CITG: EI-BDP (-35H/ER) GECAS: EI-CRL/CRM (-343/ER) ILFC: EI-CRD/CRF (-31B/ER) /CRO (-3Q8/ER) PEGA: EI-DDW (-3S1/ER)
Boeing 777-243/ER (rest of 777's owned) GECAS: EI-DBK/DBL/DBM/DDH
Embraer ERJ-170-100LR GECAS: EI-DFG/DFH/DFI/DFJ/DFK/DFL (all from type)

Noticed in the original post that there is a mention of Indian registrations on AZ's aircraft - are you sure you don't mean VP registered? I believe this is a Bermuda/Cayman Islands prefix, which presumably is used for some sort of financial benefit. A lot of Aeroflot (in fact Western-built Russian aircraft in general) are registered this way.
