Flight Fright

Who Took Sicily Off The Face Of The Earth?

Italian airline Alitalia has apologised after its in-flight magazine printed a map leaving off the Mediterranean island of Sicily. The magazine's editor blamed the error on a printing mistake - after a passenger told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera that she noticed Sicily was missing - while she was on a flight to the island.

Ouch, big error. Now, the Mafia brothers have to teach someone a lesson in geography.

I would not want to anger the Sicilians....

How can one leave off the island from a map reprinted in a magazine...I wonder if someone was playing a little joke....

(Sorry... you say Italian and I think food. Sicilian food is devilishly good.)

They say the editor of the magazine sleeps with the fish...

Alitalia is going through such hell right now, it doesn't surprise me, actually.

This sounds like a joke, or perhaps a transversal message, because if you look at a map of Italy, it's hard to eliminate Sicily...

Ciao from the Boot.
