Berlusconi has softened it's initial opposition and said he would be willing to accept a take-over b AF,provided the national identity of AZ will be maintained.
I would also imagine the terms and conditions are rather imposed by AF and not the opposite.So if AZ unions agree on jobcuts as suggested ( about 1400 to go ) and the Malpensa claim of 1.Billion € in case of anticipated flight-cuts from AZ is made obsolete,things should move fast.

The other side of the story is that if AZ fails, or needs to sell assets (including airplanes) I am sure some of their 777's and other aircraft would fit nicely throughout the international aviation community. Let us not also forget their remaining slots at LHR and other airport assets in the entire system have value to other carriers also.
