We use Alitalia a lot as we always seem to have impossible to lift hold luggage! We have found the trick is to have at least one and a half hr stopover time, especialy in Rome (Milan seems to cope better) to allow time for hold baggage to go through security checks and be taken to the next flight. Gives time to have a coffee and a snack too.
We normaly try to go via Milan and have enough stopover time to relax, have lunch and a coffee.
Happy travelling
Allen

Hi Allen

I think 5 hours should be long enough to transfer luggage from one flight to another!
I have only had this problem on the 2 occasions I flew via Rome ... Linate is my first choice.

Buon viaggio
Lorica

Hi Lorica
Me too, only problems through Rome.
It's very sunny and hot here in Calabria, returning to dismal rain tomorrow morning :-(
Cool beers

Husband said see Last Supper, wife said Turin Shroud. Husband knows better than to argue.

The Last Supper (even though a medieval builder cut a doorway through the middle) is at least genuine.

We've booked flights with Alitalia to Calabria again for summer 2014. Very pleased with the flights times and prices. Indirect flights from Heathrow to lamezia with astop in either Rome or Milan for three people for just over £400 at peak season.
No extra costs for luggage. Happy days!

Monarch is to compete with Ryanair and EasyJet as it steers away from package holidays.
They are to end nearly four decades as a charter airline and will focus on scheduled flights.
The brand revamp, labelled Fly your way. Every day, will see them compete with EasyJet and Ryanair, as well as British Airways in the scheduled market.
Monarch has scrapped all debit card booking fees from last Saturday, while payments by credit card will incur a flat fee of ?10 per booking.
Monarch said it was in negotiations with credit card companies to reduce fees further, and pledged to pass any savings on.
