Many of you may have videos of old Kai Tak in Hong Kong - or even have been there. On some of these videos, I noticed some particularly lousy landings by Alitalia MD11s and those I saw myself were also quite, well, "interesting". Was it just the MD11, Kai Tak or a combination, as the airline actually has quite a good record; I certainly wouldn't avoid them. But has anyone travelled on an Alitalia MD11 and had any unpleasant experience - particularly into Hong Kong?
