Alitalia: Firenze To Milan

Mon Dec 10, 2001 7:06 am

Hi,

Next week, my girlfriend's parents are going on a holiday to Italy.

When they return, they'll fly Alitalia from Firenze to Milan (I don't know whether it'll be Linate or Malpensa...)

Anyway, does anybody know on which aircraft type they'll fly this route? Is this going to be an ATR-type or something like that?

Thanks in advance,

Ivan

Sorry, I`m an idiot Big grin yesterday I was at Milan but I didn`t catch the newest AZ timetable. Here are some old facts:

According to the AZ timetable from June 16. to October 22. 2001 all flights from Florence to Milan are operated by Azzurra Airlines which is a partner airline of Alitalia. All flights have an AZ flight No. >AZ1687, 1689, 1693 and 1695.

Yesterday at Milan, I saw a lot of Azzurra ARJ`s. I`m sure that the flights with Azzurra Air will be OK. Yesterday me and a friend get a free upgrade to business class with Alitalia. A great airline !!!

Oh yes, sorry, the aircraft types of partner airlines are not listed in the AZ timetable.

Amadeus lists FLR-MIL as M80/D38/AT7/AR8 depending on the flight.

Thanks for the information.

So, chances are it might be a jet-engined regional jet, right? My (future?) mother in law will love to hear this, because she...euh...dislikes props...don't ask me why?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

For next week amadeus generally shows an MD80, Avro-70 or 85 and a Dornier 328 and three ATR 72s daily.

There were some exceptions but generally I found three ATR72s and then three or four flights with a mix of M80/D38/ARJ.

So, yes, chances are it will be a jet but she'll be fine onboard an ATR too... I also have some friends who hate turboprops but realize they are ok after they have tried them!

Can MD80s operate from Firenze ? I am led to believe that the airport can only take 146/RJ-sized aircraft.

-MD80s are on routes from

Pisa Galileo Galilei (PSA), Florence, Italy

-Smaller types from

Peretola (FLR), Florence, Italy

When you search for flights from FLR, also the ones from PSA will show up, at least in amadeus.

All the AZ flights Florence - Milan are operated on MXP.
There are 4 daily flights, 3 operated by the franchising carrier Azzurra Air (ZS) with ARJ-70/85, one flight is operated with ATR-72 by Alitalia Express.

MDD-80 cannot operate on the short runway of Florence airport.

There are four daily flights:

one with Alitalia Express ATR72
one with Azzurra Air ARJ 70
two with Minerva Airlines Do328 (prop)

I´d probably try to get myself on one Azzurra and one Minerva...

On top of those four flights there are 2-3 flights from PSA which is obviously close to FLR as those flights show up when you search for FLR. MD-80s operate from PSA.
