Default Street Captain/CQFO

Iím sure itís in here but without searching the entire thread with its banter, what is there to know about the A220 Street Captain/CQFO program? I did the on-demand video interview earlier today. Are you hired and paid as an FO until you are needed as a captain? Seniority based? Do you start at the Captain rate?

yes, FO pay until in the left seat. You can be used in the left seat as needed and will be paid CA rates in those times. Once you hold a vacant award for CA seat, then CA pay at all times but can still be used in the right seat.

there is a possibility that if and when Ejet pilots transition to the A220, if it happens soon enough into A220 program, that Ejet guys could hold you in the right seat as the Ejet pilot seniority will bump all the DEC down in seniority.

Another thing on pay that might help with pilots switching to the A220 is that for every A220 pilot on property an E190 pilot will be paid A220 pay in seniority order. Still not great but a second year captain on the E190 could be paid $160hr.

For the pilots that are on the current seniority list , not new hires.

The number of carriers who use containers on A32x is minuscule compared to the number who actually operate the plane. The ULD-3 container the A32x uses is also not the same container that a widebody would use, so they would only be used in the A32x as they would be highly inefficient to use in a widebody.

secondly the whole container discussion is moot as Breeze is a Non-Cargo carrier. We donít accept or fly ANY cargo in our planes.

Breeze already has a configuration for lie flat seats. That configuration is even less seats than the current 126, but not that many.
Deltaís seat configuration in coach is 34 inches for the first 30 seats and 32 inches for the rest of coach with the exception of 1 row at 31 inches. Breeze coach product has 10 seats at 33 inches a few seats at 31 and the remainder of coach at 30 inches. LD3 containers are also used for the majority of checked bags at many airlines, Having the bags preloaded in bins is the only way to get decent turn times especially on larger aircraft. Modern aircraft use a vacuum flush system to send water to a central tank or in the case of most long haul aircraft two tanks set up on completely different circuits to provide redundancy in case one system shuts down. The A220 uses a single tank vacuum system. The number of lavs is irrelevant to tank capacity. Lav issues even with redundant systems are one of the leading causes of diverts on long haul flights.

There is reason why the majors getting involved with zero to hero flight training programs for future staffing. The regionals have literally zero idea how they are going to attract pilots and most if not all of them have pathway/flow programs to the legacies/majors. Where in the hell are places like Breeze and Avelo going to find pilots? Breeze hasn't even been operating that long (about a year?) and already has to find foreign pilots to staff it. Why would anyone go there over other airlines? You basically need the same quals to work for Breeze right now, as you do Delta. Delta is hiring pilots without degrees and giving CJOs for future sim dates because they can't staff quickly enough...
How many pilots has Delta hired without a degree, not including flows? Yes they changed the requirement to have a degree to apply, but that doesn't mean they are scrapping the bottom of the barrel yet.
