I recently booked a flight from Munich to Delhi via Rome. The layover in Rome was around 2.5 hours when I booked the flight, which is good enough for a change, considering I have to go through security and passport control. However, Alitalia changed my itinerary and the flight from Munich to Rome is now postponed by 1 hour 45 minutes, leaving only 45 minutes to change the connection at Rome (The minimum connecting time at FCO is 45 minutes). I am quite certain that it's almost impossible to make it to the next flight with such a short layover.
I talked to both the airline and the agency. Initially, they were not willing to help and the airline was asking me to talk to the agency and the agency was asking me to talk to the airline. Eventually, I convinced the agency to sort the matter out. However, they couldn't find any alternative options since there is only one flight from Munich Rome and Rome Delhi (on that day).
What are my options now? The layover of 45 minutes is too short in Rome airport, even if the inbound flight arrives on time (and in that case, I am sure that Alitalia would not provide me with the next available flight as told by their customer support).
