Re: Aircraft to Aden

Never flew out or back with Alitalia usually BOAC or MEA. The routes seemed to change yearly. Flew London Rome Cairo one year. Then Rome Beirut Jeddah. Also London Rome Khartoum. Wish I had taken more notice of the routes and taken some photo’s.

Re: Aircraft to Aden

Seemed to remember going via Rome a few times. I wish I knew what happened to the lovely Italian family my dad worked with, Sebastian La Rosa. He had two daughters, one worked in one of the shops in Little Aden (might have been called Albina). Does anyone remember them or know where they went. If my memory serves me correctly, there were houses for employees from India (or perhaps other nationals) and they lived there.

Re: Aircraft to Aden

Usually London Beirut Jeddah Aden on MEA (changing at Beirut). I once remember London Frankfurt Rome Cairo Asmara Aden . This was on United Arab Airlines (changing at Cairo). It took forever !
