Back in May, I wrote a tip about a new airline founded by David Neeleman, the founder and former CEO of JetBlue. It’s his fifth airline start-up, after JetBlue, Brazil’s Azul, Canada’s WestJet, and Utah-based Morris Air (later purchased by Southwest).

Breeze Airways initially had 39 nonstop routes between 16 cities in the Southwest, Midwest, Southeast and Eastern US. But they just announced a huge expansion, along with a great fare sale.

Breeze is now expanding across the U.S. with 77 routes between 28 cities in 18 states. They’re heading west with service from San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), Las Vegas (LAS) and San Bernardino, with coast-to-coast fares starting at just $99 one way. The introductory fares promotion is only available when booking a new reservation and on select routes. Supply is limited. No advance purchase requirement applies. Promotion must be purchased by March 11, 2022 (11:59 pm ET) for travel by August 31, 2022. Blackout dates are, but also not limited to, June 30, 2022 through July 5, 2022. Price, rules and routes displayed includes taxes & government fees. Prices, rules, routes, and schedules are subject to change without notice. Restrictions and blackout dates may apply.

New cities to be added in the east and southeast include: Jacksonville, Fort Myers and Sarasota/Bradenton, FL; Savannah, GA;  Nashville, TN; and Syracuse, NY.

A220 Aircraft
Breeze has ordered 80 brand new Airbus A220-300 aircraft (with options for 40 more) that will be delivered one per month for six years. The airline will more than double its fleet this year, from 13 Embraer 190 and 195 aircraft to 30 aircraft, including 13 Airbus A220s and four additional Embraer E-jets.

Breeze’s initial A220 aircraft deliveries will feature 126 seats, including 36 First Class seats in a two-by-two configuration, 10 Extra Legroom seats, and 80 Standard Economy seats in a two-by-three configuration. The A220 seat configuration is dynamic however and later deliveries will offer 137 total seats, 12 First Class seats, 45 Extra Legroom seat and 80 Standard Economy seats onboard.

Seat Pitch
What’s nice is that unlike most low fare carriers, Breeze offers a First Class seat. First Class seats feature 39-inches of seat pitch, 20.5-inches of seat width, and special features, such as a footrest, for added comfort. Seat pitch for a Standard Economy seat on the A220s is 30 inches, 29 inches on the E-190 aircraft and 31 inches on the E-195s, while seat pitch for Extra Legroom is 32 in on the A220s, between 33 and 39 inches on the E-190s, depending on the row selected, and between 34 and 39 inches on the E-195s.

Earned Credit With Each Flight – And No Change or Cancellation Fees 
Breeze’s low fares start at just $39 and there are no change or cancellation fees. Guests earn credit called “BreezePoints” on all purchases that can be used towards future flights or other ancillary products such as bags and seat assignments. Guests can change or cancel a flight up to 15 minutes before scheduled departure without penalty. Unused funds from changes and cancellations are automatically saved in the Guest’s Breeze account and do not expire for 24 months.

Guests may select a seat assignment and add bags to their reservation for an additional cost. Prices to check bags online are a flat rate of $29 each way, for up to three bags, while carry-on bags are $25 each way. Guests are encouraged to check bags online. It costs $50 for baggage fees if paid at the airport ticket counter.

Seat assignments start from $10 for Standard Economy, $20 for Extra Legroom, and $30 for First Class, but Family Seating is free for families traveling with children 12 and under. If no seat is selected, one will be assigned at no cost during check-in. The charge to travel with a pet in the cabin is $75.
