Last I heard is that Breeze is looking at options for an extra fuel tank similar to what can be found in the A220 Bizjet (ACJ). Have you heard differently? This has been discussed for the last 6 months - it’s not news….

Regarding the Aussies, didn’t Skywest employ a bunch at one point? I’d rather have Americans flying out airplanes too but qualified foreign labor might be a temporary bandaid. Considering the tight lockdown situation in Australia these days, maybe a bunch of qualified pilots will want to leave…

I don’t know what was promised but the aircraft meets the specs for range and runway performance Airbus currently quotes.

There’s also talks of airbus making a longer version to get more capacity. Just like how the 737 has evolved and has different variants the same can happen with the A220. I think aux tanks are more likely to happen since airbus is already working on it. I believe breeze wants some of the last orders they have to be extended range.
The aux tanks restrict baggage capacity. They would only be a player in a reduced searing capacity version which is not the Breeze business model.

Well, the breeze 220s have 36 domestic first seats…3x that of delta. So, I imagine where there is a market for low price premium leisure they will have no problem with low density configs. No idea about the lie flat config Neeleman has mentioned though.

[QUOTE=David Puddy;3347758]Last I heard is that Breeze is looking at options for an extra fuel tank similar to what can be found in the A220 Bizjet (ACJ). Have you heard differently? This has been discussed for the last 6 months - it’s not news….


"The range Neeleman wants is 4,000 nautical miles. But for Airbus to give the A220-300 such an increase in range isn’t as simple as adding an extra fuel tank. The aircraft will need another increase in its MTOW. Breeze wants a range increase for its Airbus A220-300 The aircraft’s current range is enough for some fairly long trips. A 4,000-mile range would only make sense for international travel. We knew that Breeze will use their Airbus fleet differently from their Embraer fleet. But even so, it’s hard to imagine how they would get this kind of range."

BTW, also we heard that one A220 was gonna be delivered every month starting last October, so far only 1 was delivered. we are in January 2022 what happened with the other 3 or 4? range issues maybe?

Skywest is a regional airline and breeze is a "MAJOR" airline (that's what they call themselves) we don't see any real major airline hiring Australians. probably TP was right Fabreeze is a Regional Plus. apple to apples, please.

Why are you on here trolling? All your post are negative. You clearly don’t like “fabreeze” so why are you on here? Why are you so obsessed with them? Did you interview and they turned you down so now your mad? There’s other options out there. Maybe try and apply at GoJet if they didn’t turn you down too!

as far as deliveries go. I’ve had a truck on order that was suppose to be delivered six months ago. Unless you lived under a rock you’d realize the world is having a supply chain issue!

OMG!!!!!! now you are comparing trucks with an airplane. FYI A220's are in high demand now. Fabreeze let Jetblue take some of their A220 so they don't have to start paying 10k a day for their lease. i thought you said you dont work there, my guess is you are. good luck!!!!!!! Ohhhh btw they don't have sim slots available for the months of February on the Ejets side. keep drinking their kool-aid buddy.
