Flying Alitalia Etihad Swiss to Palermo


The Etihad name was painted clearly on the side of the plane and the symbol was on the wing, as was the Swiss Airlines livery. ‎When I got on board, the flight attendants were dressed in Etihad gear. Yet, we were flying Alitalia, the troubled Italian carrier to Sicily. It was a small ATR-72, the furthest thing from an a380. Still the familiar colors reminded me of my Apartments flight from a year ago.


  1. This is Etihad Regional, a Swiss carrier (that is why there is a Swiss flag on it, it’s not the Swiss livery), and they are operating this flight on behalf of Alitalia, that’s why there is the logo on the head-rest.

    Nothing to do with flying Swiss, but good try.
