Italy's Wind Jet Grounds Flights After Alitalia Talks Fail

The Telegraph is reporting that Sicily-based airline Wind Jet was forced to ground flights during the peak period for travel after takeover talks with Alitalia (Italy’s national air carrier) failed.

The low-cost carrier, which has a fleet of 12 Airbus aircraft and was Italy's fourth largest airline, had been suffering from financial difficulties.
