The heavily indebted company Alitalia has been negotiating with Etihad to save the company before it runs out of cash in August.  As a part of the negotiations, Etihad has requested creditors to write off 30% of Alitalia’s debts, convert the rest into equity and to lay-off between 2,200 and 2,500 of its 19,000 workforce. Talks with all involved parties, including trade unions, are due to start soon.
