Great!

Aug 27, 2019

Our flight attendants were phenomenal!!!!!! I wish we could have them on every flight! They gave us first class service despite the fact we were at the back of the plane.

The plane going to Italy was great. Coming back to the US was a different story. The return plane had "newer" seats...which means thin and uncomfortable. I had to go to my chiropractor the day after the return because my tailbone was still numb because of nerve compression from the bad seats. My entire family felt the same way...going, the plane seats were good; returning, not!

Loved the newer airplane we had from Chicago to Rome!

Flight was delayed by 1-1/2 hours, but the airline called ahead to inform of the delay, which was great.

This was my first time flying and Alitalia made it easy. The staff was friendly and helpful. I was able to find where I needed to go easily.
