In 2002 Jet Blue had a operating income of 105 million and net profit of 54 million at a time when virtually every other airline was losing money and yields were low. Currently yields are very strong and most airlines expect a substantial profit next year.
Jet Blue published detailed financials. Breeze so far has not.

There are months, yes months with the schedules we have that we get home rarely. Some months even with 12-15 days off, I have been home with 3-5 days off without a commute leg. Meaning many off days are commuting to and from. We start early before 7 am, end after 10 pm. So work days are not commutable. Heard we just lost a A220 Captain going to eagle. Many of us are coming up to the “give it a year” mark. With big pay and quick upgrade times at the majors, there are lots of rumblings.

If you move into base, it’s a fantastic job!!!!
We were just given that survey asking where we all live when not flying, so I’m sure they’re looking into ways to making it better.

Jet Blue started in a time when pilots were starving and jumping at any available job. Airlines were deferring airframe deliveries due to the situation at the time. This time Neeleman has to fight for pilots and fight for airframe deliveries. If we're going to compare, let's make it apples to apples, not apples to basketballs.

I don't know if he is or isn't, but the market for pilots and airframes is drastically different from late 2001, so not a comparable situation.

Realistically, can he even compete?? A legacy job will always trump a LCC. Breeze could pay DL rates and ppl would still jump ship, for the name on the side of the airplane , heavy flying, etc…
