They have a daily 5:15 minimum and the basic 1 for 3.5 rigs right? That makes it pay 15:45!

Well, Delta flies the A220. They don’t have 195s so not sure why you’d think they should sell them to delta???? Plus a lot of pilots like the 190s. As a passenger I like not having a middle seat and it’s wider then a CRJ. Not sure where you’re going with this.

Obviously it's a rapidly changing environment at Breeze but any guestimate on how long it would take a new hire Ejet FO to hold TPA? Thanks

Junk= highest dispatch reliability in its class and lowest fuel burn. There is a reason two of the most successful and fastest growing airlines in the world operate them exclusively.

Still a old piece of junk, uncomfortable, and outdated aircraft that has been stretched, pulled, and modified beyond expectations. Given the option, as a passenger, there is no question as to which aircraft I would rather travel on. Dispatch reliability? Yep….it should be the highest!!! As an airplane to fly on a 4 hour flight? Give me an Airbus anyday.

With the current rate of attrition you might hold it either out of training or on your second month.

How much attrition? Jumping a sinking ship? It was mentioned earlier that there was a 2.5 hour 3 day due to a charter. I think a reply to that was sarcastic, but what are the rules in terms of min day, block or better, etc.

I know its a startup and all, but the competition is crazy right now and a great market for pilots. Why should anyone apply to Breeze when there are so many options?
Seniority? Opportunity for growth? Start up environment?

Just in case you are talking about SWA and Ryanair:
Neither are nowhere close to being the fastest growing in the last decade, and:
