Just like some of the regional lifers that skipped a flow.
Whats the matter? Stuck on reserve at the bottom in EWR? I wouldn’t take to heart what pilots say about their shop. It’s a tiny percentage of the pilot group. It’s APC. If you’re so concerned about garbage I’d talk to a breeze pilot if you see one around

Maybe Allegiant will have a new contract soon

Struck a nerve I guess. I really have no idea what your reply even means - reserve - by choice, at the bottom - no, concerned about garbage....??? Definitely not concerned about Breeze pilots - don't think I've ever seen one. I just find it funny that you say blah blah blah, we're almost a legacy, breeze is the bee's knees but others say breeze is a turd. You said the only thing separating breeze from a legacy is the DC. I added the pay rates as something else separating you all.

The fact the someone decided to put Breeze in the Major sub forum is joke in itself.

I was given a class date in July. When I interviewed they said that PVD was where newhire FO's were going. Is that still the case?

PVD and BDL. They’re always junior.

Still waiting on a start date, but I was wondering what the process is like after the initial training is completed. Is there a decent period between finishing in the sims and your first flight? I'm planning to move onto whichever base I get, as I've heard that commuting is almost impossible. I'll be moving my family with me, but just trying to figure out if it's viable to do it after the groundschool/sims are finished, or to try and get it done prior to starting the training.

You will have anywhere from 2-5 days off, but you can request more if you need it. Typically you’ll get the days to move after you complete IOE

When I started in January, we had two weeks off between indoc and starting in the sim. When you are finishing IOE, you can also let crew services know you need some time to move and they will work with you.
