can anybody on the inside shed light on how bad the attrition is at Breeze?

Has Breeze management considered taking a radical approach? Like maybe increase pay and provide industry standard work rules?

It sure sound like the company is floundering to me.

What's the delivery schedule of the 220s? It's starting to sound unlikely that they will get enough of them online to make a difference before they run out of money.

Most of you guys are probably too young to get this reference, but this sounds line Independence Air 2. You can't make money with RJs.

Attrition has slowed, not stopped. But there have only been about 2 quit in the past month. Breeze is having trouble getting the FAA to do anything for them like Fed rides, add more cadre etc. Because of that, staffing is tight. I believe 4/6 fed rides on the 190 that had been back logged are completed. But the A220 is a mess with only 5 cadre pilots. Plus the company screwed up by pulling the 190 out of TPA before the Airbus was up and running smoothly. Now we have to cover A220 flights with the 190, but have only a few captains and no FOís left in that base. Also a pay raise is needed, we all know that. In the middle of an ALPA vote the company canít raise payÖ

All airlines are having trouble getting the FAA to do rating rides for APDís ect.. The FAA is swamped with all the training. Breeze has been in the works for a long time. They should have had their training cadre up to speed before the first revenue flight. Now they can wait like everyone else.

Does anyone know how likely it would be to get PVU out of training and which fleet would give me the best chance? Also what is the chance of getting the 220 now that they are saying you bid for fleet type in class?

Not true.

My class still has 90% of us still here, and we started last summer.

Other classes around that time? Maybe 30-40% attrition.

Itís probably not going to happen (PVU) for a year or two at least.

Iím not sure about the new hire class situation.

There is no status quo during the vote, as there is no current CBA.
