Alitalia Cabin Crew Base in SIN during the late 70s.

Thu Feb 14, 2019 10:31 am

Apparently, Alitalia had a small number of cabin crew base in SIN to support their Australia flights. This was during the mid to late 70s. Is there anyone here who can provide me with more information (history) on the above?

I thought their Aussie flights always routed through Bangkok. Miss those days, row of 747s in Sydney marching the ethnic makeup of the suburbs — Alitalia, Olympic, JAT (DC-10), MEA. Now everyone flies ME3 of course
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

I do recall that AZ was operating the DC10 from SIN. Not sure if the flights were SYD or MEL bound. But you're right about the ethnic makeup.
