I flew last summer on Alitalia from Rome to Venice on an MD80. It was a short flight however I noticed the airline was ok, not bad, I had always thought it was really bad, but after my experience, I changed my mind. We were given Business Class seats without even asking, because economy was full, and the Business Class seats were comfortable, 2-2 abreast instead of 3-2 on economy. We were given a snack and a drink, but what can you expect from an extremely short flight, probably thirty mins long, if not less, correct me if I'm wrong. Service was good, seats really comfy however the only problem was that it was delayed by over an hour, and everytime we kept asking when we would board, they said 15mins...anyway Alitalia needs some imrovement but its a good airline!
