It’s better to play it safe. To me it’s still stupid to travel in this period.

In Italy we say "all world is country".
Lufthansa has been saved by German Government: 1,3 billion euro to save the airline, German Government will be the first shareholder.
So, not only Alitalia, but the future of all the major airlines, in post Covid-19 time, will be the nazionalization.

This is not really correct, Ale.

The loan/injection I think they talk About is 9 Bln Euros. But Lufthansa will not be nationalized, unlike Alitalia. There the plan was already pre Covid to nationalize. In this case, and in most other Airline cases, it will be temporary and Government and Company have to provide an Exit plan and only a limited tim ein participation.

Delta will block middle-seat selection, cap cabin seating through Sept. 30

Delta is extending our commitment to make more space for safer travel by continuing to block the selection of middle seats and capping seating in every cabin through Sept. 30, 2020.
“Reducing the overall number of customers on every aircraft across the fleet is one of the most important steps we can take to ensure a safe experience for our customers and people,” said Chief Customer Experience Officer Bill Lentsch. “Delta is offering the highest standards in safety and cleanliness so we’re ready for customers when they’re ready to fly again.”
Here’s the latest:
  • We are extending our seating caps: Through Sept. 30, Delta will ensure more space for customers on all aircraft by capping seating at 50% in First Class; 60% in Main Cabin, Delta Comfort+, and Delta Premium Select; and 75% in Delta One to reduce the total number of customers on board.
  • We continue to block middle seats: Through Sept. 30, all middle seats will continue to be shown as unavailable or not assignable when selecting seats via the Fly Delta app or online. We’ll also continue to block the selection of some aisle seats in aircraft with 22 seating configurations.
  • We are restarting automatic Medallion upgrades: Starting June 10, we are resuming automatic, advance Medallion Complimentary Upgrades to Delta One (domestic U.S.), First Class and Delta Comfort+ – which were previously being managed at the gate – subject to availability and as permitted by the seat caps.
  • We are adding flying where we are full: On routes where increasing customer demand is driving flight loads closer to our caps, we will look for opportunities to upsize to a larger aircraft type or add more flying.
As we’ve done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to evaluate our practices to ensure we are meeting the needs of our customers.
https://worldairlinenews.files.wordp...ng?w=625&h=272
From check-in to baggage claim, Delta is delivering a safer travel experience with measures that include:
  • Requiring customers and employees to wear face coverings throughout the travel journey to ensure an extra layer of protection.
  • Installing plexiglass shields at all Delta check-in counters, in Delta Sky Clubs and at gate counters across the globe.
  • Adding social distance markers in check-in lobbies, Delta Sky Club check-in areas, at the gate and down the jetbridge to encourage customers to stand apart. Our employees and messaging throughout the airport are reminding customers to keep space, too.
  • Wiping down our check-in lobbies, self-service kiosks, gate counters and baggage claims many times throughout the day. And by summer, our teams will be using electrostatic spraying in all airports Delta serves in the U.S. – the same measure used on every Delta flight prior to boarding. We have also started electrostatic spraying at TSA checkpoints in key markets and are working with the TSA to provide electrostatic spraying at all checkpoints in the airports Delta serves.
  • Using state-of-the-art air circulation systems with industrial-grade HEPA filters on many Delta aircraft that extract more than 99.99% of particles, including viruses.
  • Boarding all flights from back to front, reducing the instances of customers passing by one another to reach their seats.
  • Streamlining  onboard food and beverage service on all flights and encouraging customers to pack their own food and non-alcoholic beverages to decrease physical touch points.
  • Providing supplies directly to customers when available, including  hand sanitizers, care kits  and other protective equipment to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
  • Continuing to work with health experts, partners and healthcare industry leaders on best practices.
Change-fee waiver extended through June 30
While Delta is redefining the industry standard of clean and making more space on board for customers, we’re also continuing to offer added flexibility if travel plans change. That’s why we’re extending our change-fee waiver for new flights purchased through June 30, providing customers the option to change their plans without a fee for a year from the date of purchase. And keep in mind: this waiver also applies to award tickets and redeposit fees.

Unfortunately, while the world seems to recover, in China there is a new outbreak in Beijing.
Mass flight cancellations


While the Beijing government did not announce the suspension of transportation in and out of the city, hundreds of flights were canceled at Beijing's two major airports on Wednesday, according to aviation data providers.
There was no official announcement from the Chinese government on the flight cancellations. CNN has reached out to Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines for comment but has not received any response.
According to aviation data tracker Variflight, as of 3 p.m. local time Wednesday (3 a.m. ET), at least 630 flights had been or were likely to be canceled at the Beijing Capital International Airport and Beijing Daxing International Airport -- around half of all scheduled flights.
Air traffic at from both airports had been on the rise since May until the drastic plunge this week, Variflight data showed.
Flight Master, another China-based aviation data provider, said 1,255 flights had been scrapped at both airports on Wednesday, accounting for 67% of outgoing flights and 68% of incoming flights.
Air China, the country's flag carrier, announced on social media that 297 flights arriving or departing from the Beijing Capital International Airport were canceled.
"Affected by the outbreak in Beijing, there are mass delays and cancellations of arriving and departing flights," its statement said, without specifying if the authorities had given any orders for the cancellations.
Several domestic airlines, including Air China, China Eastern, China Southern and Hainan Airlines, have promised full refunds to passengers who bought tickets to leave Beijing from this week to the end of June, according to the state-run People's Daily newspaper.
The country's railway authorities also announced full refunds on all tickets to and from Beijing booked before Wednesday, People's Daily reported.
Earlier this week, the city had already suspended all outbound taxi and car-hailing services, and some long-distance bus routes between Beijing and neighboring provinces.
