Is there any attempt by the state to sell all/part of it?

So far the government has stayed out of any interference.
The biggest thing coming up in 2018 is a possible revision of the labor agreement with the flight attendants union. The current rules are unrealistic and uncompetitive as you'd expect in an airline that was government run for decades but the union doesn't want it. So that will be a very interesting thing to watch. The existing agreement is leading to ridiculous episodes like the one reported here:

Um Im sorry but that article needs to be looked at - 206 pax requires 5 Cabin Crew not 4, it is a JAA violation and the story doesnt add up. If true the airline needs to be fined, but as usual with the internet and entitled freaks something doesnt add up in that story...
