Think for yourself if Breeze is a good fit for yourself and your family, if not, move on or stay put. Who knows how it will ply out with breeze getting a pay raise, my dolla r says the company will have to cave and give in to one very soon. Other than that, how will being super senior at a brand new company ďpay offĒ to you? Iíd give up pay to be home based and senior, but thatís just me. Ask yourself these questions.

I agree with you. Thanks for the input. Like I said Iím not willing to give up home base. Current job is great, But Iím about capped out at 120k like you said, natural time to move on before canít take a pay cut. Pipe dream is to base out of Tampa/St Pete area. Really the only reason I looked into breeze. Might just be almost time to put in for all the big boys and hope one of them with a good base (for us) hits. Then stick it out til I hold a line somewhere thatís not Cali or the northeast.

Itís not as high as you would think. Thereís been a few guys that went to UA but nothing crazy. A lot of guys are giving Breeze a couple years to see what happens with the 220 and west coast bases (thereís a lot of west coast commuters believe it or not).

Ya $1500 until the end of the year, after that no one knows what will happen.

Hopefully they continue it. Is that money taxed or is it classified like per-diem? $1500 seems like enough for hotels and uber rides for a month if you get a hotel that's not too far but doesn't provide a shuttle.
