Breeze leadership subtly threatening another pilot whoís on their way out??

Itís like they love ruining their kindness and integrity which, for those of you prepping for an interview at the worldís nicest airline, are two of the core values.

I have a video interview with Breeze a week from now for the E190/195. I live in Atlanta, so I was just wondering if commuting from here is possible?

We have Jumpsest Agreements with all the legacies. Including, very soon, with Delta. Yes. Very commutable. 👍

So what would a normal schedule look like for a new guy on the E190/195 if it's just one day trips. I'm very open to flying for Breeze after looking at everything. I'm just a little unsure of how the schedule would work. You said earlier "I have 20 days off including a block of 11 days straight". If I could do something similar being new that would be great.

Also is Charleston (KCHS) still an option for new hires? It's a 5 hour drive for me from Atlanta so about the same as flying.

Honestly, things are changing quickly around here. I wouldn't count on 20 days off right away because that usually happens when you're top two in base, but with new bases opening soon, people are going to be moving around a lot, so top two in a base may not be far away.

And yes. guys are getting CHS out of training recently, or maybe a month or two later. Again, if it were today, you might get stuck Reserve in ORF for a couple months. But by the time you get through training, everything will be different than today.

Not helpful, but accurate.

I canít really give a better answer than Fastneat already said. But itís possible to only be on reserve for a week or two (depending on when you finish OE), then go right to holding a line where you want. ORF is the junior base, but guys have snagged CHS and MSY in training right now. Also there will be more bases opening this year, so expect a shuffling of all the lines in all bases. A huge portion of our pilots are west coast commuters, as soon as a west coast base opens, expect a mass migration.

jumpseats arenít what make a company commutable, efficient and commutable trips are. Breeze IS NOT commutable on either plane currently. As a commuter here, quality of life absolutely sucks here. The top 1-2 people in each base have good-great schedules, but the rest of the base takes the brunt of the suck.

the Ejets are all day trips. Some days are front end commutable some are back end commutable. However none of them are both front and back end and because of the times they are scheduled for as well as length you typically canít get the trips to abut each other to be commutable on both ends.

the A220 is going to be even worse based off of the initial schedule. The two day trips will be a very early 5-6 AM show, flying two legs ending up on the west coast, followed by a ~24hr overnight, and then two legs back to the east coast base the following day arriving between 9-11PM. So you wonít be able to put two two-day trips back to back on that fleet.

Reserve is 11 days off, you will be lucky to spend 6-8 nights actually at home if your commuting to reserve.

until we are consistently flying 7 days of the week, the schedules will suck for the majority of pilots here unless you live in base. The number one pilot here is a commuter. He should be able to get exactly what he wants but yet he almost never gets his schedule the way he bid because the company throws extra trips on everyoneís schedule to cover the flying.

Never seen that??? There is plenty of open time, but Iíve never heard one pilot here just randomly have trips added. Unless maybe youíre talking about reserve? Then itís just like being onÖ reserve?

If they throw it on a line holder, just refuse it and make a deal to fly it for premium or donít fly it at all.

The way that I read it is that the very senior guy bids the required amount of flying time to make a line and that's what he expects to be awarded. Instead, the company gives him that flying PLUS additional flying that he didn't bid when he's awarded a line. But it may be the way you stated; that additional flying is thrown at them after line award.

Wow a bit surprising since itís eastern bases with day trips. Are guys using crashpads? Whatís the best base for commuters?
