Default Breeze direct entry captains

Hello guys, does anyone knows what is the common flying base for a new Captain on A220?

With the plane not flying yet, itís hard to gauge. However, the current bases are BDL, ORF, CHS and TPAÖ with the TPA and CHS bases showing the most popular. But I would plan on a lot of movement once the plane gets rolling. I canít promise where you will end up but I think itís fair to say that you could be where you wanted relatively soon as a DEC. Good luck!

That would be awesome and it would make sense. Provo is just down the road from SLC. I think I read that Allegiant will be basing some Airbuses there this summer too.

It sounds like it would be a random days and not like a 2 or 3 days in a row where driving/commuting could work.
lots of naysayers here. I commute 4 times as far as you would and I make it work. Itís not ideal but it works. And itís not forever. Things are changing a lot here. I know a guy who commuted from ATL when he first started. He drove. Then he was so happy here he convinced his family to move to CHS and itís better.

schedule wise on Reserve youíll prob have every Tuesday and Wednesday off. Maybe a couple other days. But reserve will be short. Think weeks not months. Once you line bid, itís PBS so the more senior you get the better your schedule will be.

I say go Breeze. More money, better planes, better future.

Thank you. Just out of curiosity, what time is the first go of the day usually and/or the last go?

itís been 6:30 or 7:00 first flight most days and 22:55 last CHS flight arrival. But things change and itís not that everyday.

knowing said pilot, the day he showed up in CHS was the day TPa was announced as closingÖ why donít you ask him how that made him feel?

From my conversations with him, it didnít sound like he moved because he was so happy here but rather he didnít like the amount of time spending away from family while commuting.

must be a different pilot as Iíve been flying with him in CHS long before the announcement was made to switch TPA to all A220 flying.
