If you live in a Breeze base I would say Breeze, otherwise spirit wins in every metric. They just borrowed 600M and I would assume that’s going to boost their first year pay. Breeze is probably the least commutable airline out there, aside from allegiant.

I would be careful joining an airline that barrows large amounts of money. Especially to raise pilot pay, assuming that's true. Pilot pay and benefits can change for the worst real fast when a company starts down the slippery slope that lead to a bankruptcy.

Any answers to the PVU base questions asked previously?

1- Chances of getting PVU out of training as an FO and what aircraft would be the most plausible in PVU?

2- Anyone know the reason for those with CJO not having a class date until Q1 or Q2?

TIA

Well… they have a charter operation that is essentially a gateway program and 7 on / 7 off. That’s commutable. From what I’ve been told, the A220 side of things will eventually go to a 3/3 and a 4/4 schedule. They just need to grow. They understand that they’re crew bases are tough to get to so they have to make it up in other areas. Just what I have been told.

Few variables are that Breeze would be a drive, Spirit a one leg commute. There are a lot of global differentiators like retirement, size, the JB merger, etc to consider but just making sure I’m not missing something big perspective that will sway this, so let me have it. QOL, upgrade times, reserve length, etc. what does the hive mind have to say?
Career progression to a legacy major…Spirit hands down. There is nothing to consider for the merger as you will be date of hire lined up with Jetblue date of hire. Stability, pay, work rules and retirement are years away at Breeze. Spirit is likely borrowing money as part of the merger process. You are essentially going to work for Jetblue

Did they already agree on straight date of hire SLI?

Everyone hired after the Merger Agreement at both airlines will be date of hire. That is a constant for ALPA mergers. This announcement was janky the way Frontier and Jetblue went about it. It will come down to the date that Spirit agreed to be bought by Jetblue.

Would someone currently flying for Breeze be willing to send me a DM? I have some questions about reserve and bases. Thanks

What's the video interview like here? I sent in an app and heard back in a day, then after doing their questionnaire got a link for a video interview within about 20 hours. Just curious if it's more technical or situational, etc. Haven't decided either way on Breeze but figured at a minimum it'd be good to get the reps in and practice interviewing.

The pre recorded one was just 3 or 4 TMAAT type questions. No tech questions on the live interview either. Very laid back.

Appreciate it, just did it today. Was super basic. I didn't end up using more than about 45-60 seconds for each question. Hope they weren't looking for more... Either way I'll have to see if they come back to me or not, just trying to get some reps in since it's been years since I've had an interview.
