My friend Joe Brancatelli asks, “Who doesn’t crave a little dolce vita for the holidays?” If you do and you like flying business class, act today to take advantage of Alitalia’s business fare sale.
In an article this week, Joe writes, “And at least on the surface, Alitalia’s grandiosely named Magnifica Class is a bargain for as little as $775 one way from New York and $1,200 from Los Angeles. But beware: Even the Italian government calls the carrier comatose, and its service and on-time performance is incredibly erratic.”
I have long known Joe isn’t a fan of Alitalia’s service, thus he warns, “Don’t even think of using Alitalia for connecting flights beyond Italy. Concentrate on the nonstops to Rome or Milan. Fares are good until January 9, but tickets must be purchased 30 days before your departure and no later than December 5.”
