Lots of people that actually know whatís going on, know Breeze is slightly turning profit right now. They are already profitable. Itís private data that the general public doesnít have access to.

No other airline would buy Breeze while it only has 17 A220s. The order book is great, but if anyone wants to buy it to add to their fleet size (DAL), we need more physical assets.

AA is a pipe dream that only an AA pilot would be thinking about. Itís their goal to have no more than 4 fleet types. And theyíre there now. AA would be the last of any legacy to consider buying Breeze to add a fleet type

So can you expand on that? 6 months ago Breeze was running a minus 71% margin. If they have turned that into a profit it’s one of the biggest turn arounds in business history. They would also be shouting it as loud as they could. When Jet Blue turned a profit the second year the screamed it across every platform available. Businesses don’t hide making a profit or a historic turnaround.
If Breeze had a shot at a profit last quarter was certainly the time to achieve that goal. Possibly the most profitable quarter in the history of US airlines.

Donít worry, things are good here. We donít get our info from a hack aviation article. A220 delivery delays are being cleared up and weíre getting even more A220s next year. Thereís also more charter demand than even last season. Thereís more things to come too in the near future.

The DOT, who publishes the financials for the public view, was the basis for those financial numbers. How does that constitute a "hack" aviation article?

Just curious,
How long have you been in the airline business? What was your college major?

Avoiding the question. Pretty much confirms my assumptions of your resume.

But sure, your number one A220 CA should be dovetailed between two 777 CAs. LOLZ.

You’re the one that sounds like you’ve been in this business about 8 months. Still don’t know how mergers happen huh? Big staples?
