Breeze is sounding more shaky with each passing day; the moment I saw their route structure, I gave them near zero chance of survival.
It’s 350M in capital. 150 in initial fundraising and another 200 back in august. Oh and they’re making 6 figures on certain charter trips. But… “we have no money to pay our crews”

But in order for breeze to capitalize on that potential, they will need pilots, I Just don’t see how they’re going to manage their hiring needs. Unless a couple regionals fold and all of a sudden you have 100’s on the street. Maybe that’s their strategy 🤔
Some problems with that theory.
1) Not enough frequency. Breeze doesn't even offer daily frequency, much less multiple flights daily.
2) People can just drive to larger cities and have many more route options.
3) Breeze airfares are NOT ULCC fares.

I missed that it was $150M in initial funding.
I found $83M + $10M + $200M.

Any idea how much they've burned through so far?.

Looks like Avelo just got a massive pay raise today. $200 1st year CA and a $20,000 signing bonus.

Here’s an article about it (hopefully more pressure to raise pay rates soon):

Avelo only needs to open just one SFL base (from TPA to MIA) before May 4th and it will kill Fabreeze air freshener airline. so now Fabreeze is gonna be flying Ejet Regional routes..... jajajajajjaj. a $40M dollars airplane to fly from TPA to CHS, CAK, HSV, SDF, etc..... so no more Europe or Brazil? keep up the a good job Trent Porter.

[QUOTE=BlueJuicer;3356609]Don’t give them all the credit…it was actually the idea of this one “infamous” (to put it nicely) former SkyWest guy who is initial breeze cadre who touted its success at SkyWest. Or so I hear.[/QUOTE

Good ole delta bravo. Breezes finest, no doubt.

Between the failed college program and having to TDY an entire base, I bet a decent chunk

You know if they increase the pay by $30k and with 100 pilots it would only cost them $3million
