Does anybody know why Alitalia changed there aircraft on the MXP-LAX from 747-200 to MD11 in 1992?It's seems as if the route is always full. Does AZ plan to expand it's market in California by adding new flights to SFO or LAX. They seem very requested and the flights, especially in the summer, seem to be always booked and overbooked many times. Why doesn't AZ fly a bigger plane to SFO and maybe decrease frequencies to JFK or some other destinaton to help it's very requested California market. The MD11 to LAX is very small in capacity because it's a Combi version. Alitalia should really focus on there Bay Area service. They even just opened a new international terminal. Is it true that in Nov. 1999 the company operated the 747-200 to SFO. Does anybody know why?
