Anyone flying for breeze know what the schedules look like? Do trips start in the afternoon and end early enough to catch a flight back home? For me the pay and not knowing the schedules is whatís holding me back. I did see theyíre offering $2k mo on top of pay for commuting expenses and whatever else.

2 pilots have told me in the last two weeks that Breeze guaranteed them MSY base out of training. Neither of them follow this forum. I have read every post from the beginning. IIRC Breeze shrunk MSY to 1 plane and a few crews to cover. I told them Breeze straight up lied. SoÖ did they or was I mistaken?

Every base shrunk when the charter operation came on board. We are only using the 195ís for pax service. We donít have as many of those airframes. The flying also shrank due to staffing issues, and back in June when they finally decided to right size the operation and stop having to cancel so many flights. Block times are increasing again going into the fall. And you can probably have MSY in training. But we have staffed that base pretty well for the fall (keep in mind we have 12CA/12FO for MSY, but only a handful are out of training and actively flying right now today).

It looks like we have an actual Breeze person here. What's going on with Norfolk? Which type ERJ is based there? I live in Norfolk. I am on a reserve deployment now, but will be available this coming summer. Will there be an opening in Norfolk then?

ORF has suffered mainly because of staffing. Originally, very few of the pilots based there actually WANTED the base. It ended up only being 3 senior CAís, and a string of new hire FOís who would bid out, or quit all together, really soon. It was hit the hardest with the flight cuts this fall. October bid shows 11 CA and 7 FO, but the pairings arenít being built back in as much as they are in other bases yet. I canít say if the block hours will be built, cut, or remain the same going later into the fall because I canít find the email with block hour projections for all of the bases.

Management did say they anticipate the possibility of doing some type of TDY for ORF pilots down to South Florida. Such as they will fly in ORF when the demand is there, but during travel down turn months, go down to south Florida and fly there. I donít know how that would work, and I think it was just a verbalized brainstorm by Neeleman. If we can get staffing right, we could just have pilots in each base and not need to do that.

Right now, I know the 195 will be doing passenger service, and I THINK that the 190 will be based there to do some charters. I also believe at one point the 220 was said to be based there eventually, but it is not right now.

ORF is historically junior, the top 3 captains are senior, everyone below them is a direct entry, and the FOís are all very junior. There will be a spot available for you as long as the base stays open.

Default Base Assignment?

Hello, I was curious if anyone had any knowledge about getting a BDL base out of training?
Is it more junior? It looks to be an A220 base, has equipment assignment been more ejet/airbus?
Thanks a lot all, excited to join!

Default Pvu base info.

Hello just wondering about the new Pvu base. How senior is it for capt and f.o. and how big on the 190 side and a220 side? Also is there still seat locks on 195 vs A220. Thanks for any info.
