They're changing their name and a complete re-branding to come soon. Xtra and Breeze definitely got my attention. Some good news in 2020.

Just found out who their CP is. Pretty soon it will be a 36 st Squad...

I heard and saw some of his posts with some other dude who was pro tRump. I could not believe it. Dude is pretty intolerant of others who do not share his opinion. Probably a 🍑 to work for...

Anyone know if they are going to be homebased or Houston?

Talking Yes it is indeed a place to be careful of

Xtra has a long poor history and is very similar to other 36 street “Gangs”. Nothing ever good comes of these places and once you get in, it’s hard to get out. Stay away from these “Outfits”! The CP indeed comes from that 36 street mind set and will rid homself of people that don’t “Fall in”. Wait it out or find employment elsewhere. Just read the numerous posts on the history of Mijami and the companies that grew there. How and why the FAA let’s it continue is beyond me.

Happy Holidays everyone

to be fair xtra wasn't even in Miami until 2015 and out of business 2018 so I wouldn't say that's a long history of 36th street.

Talking Fair point but

They moved to Miami, after merging Skyking with Casino Express no? They actually never went out of business and have kept that -400 busy. I don’t know the CP personally but know he comes from the Miami “operators”. They just think differently is all. I also believe that like Biscayne, no more of those pesky unions! It might explain why they are hiring Capts and FOs. Did they not send 6 or 7 airplanes to the place that starts with an S? Wouldn’t they get first rights? My point, is this is exactly how 36th street airlines operate, always have always will. Now as far as starting another LCC right now, I think it’s Nuckin’ Futs but I thought that about JetBlue and boy did I get that one wrong. You can take the airline out of Miami but not Miami out of the airline. 36th street has always been a plague on the industry not matter what or where they came from. It just kept A LOT of scabs employed and I have an utter distaste for scabs.

All just taking points not trying to have an argument. It’s getting hit over the head lessons here. Oohhhh, no it’ Whhhaaaaa!

they moved to Miami when aerosale an aircraft parts and leasing company bought them. After about 6 months in Miami they fired all the xtra managers and brought in guys from defunct skyking. These guys ran a lot of people off by gutting the work rules etc. So many people left in such a hurry that the training department was shut down essentially stopping the planned expansion and resulting in their demise.
yeah they kept that 400 flying to keep the certification alive. The guys who bought it are planning another ULCC, we'll see how that goes and they've already hired and trained initial guys. They are headquartered in Huston so maybe they are moving out of the Miami FSDO.
I totally agree about the 36th street statements..
