David Neeleman’s Breeze Airways is continuing its rapid growth in previously underserved markets. The airline is losing gobs of money for now, but so did JetBlue when he founded it (and so did every other airline that was bailed out during bankruptcies earlier this century and again during COVID). Hopefully they’ll find their niche and provide much needed competition!
Breeze recently announced over a dozen new routes to Florida, including Plattsburgh-Orlando, targeting passengers from Montreal.
The airline’s typical A220s features 36 first class seats, called “Nicest” seating, in a two-by-two configuration at the front of the plane. It has 10 “Nicer” extra legroom seats and 80 “Nice” seats in a two-by-three seat configuration. First class seats will feature a whopping 39″ of seat pitch and 20.5″ wide seats and a footrest.
Family seating is free on all fares.
Breeze flights can be cancelled up to 15 minutes before departure at no charge, with the funds valid for 2 years.
Plus, you can save 25% off base fares and get 5,000 BreezePoints (worth $50 for future travel) with code: SOEXTRA

Officially it says the ticket must be $150 or more, though the code worked on tickets under $150 when I tested it.
You can enter the promo code at the end of the checkout process:
As with airlines like Allegiant, Frontier, and Spirit, you can save even more by purchasing flights at the airport. Officially that’s only available on Tuesday, though readers have said that it also works on other days.
How much will you save?
Just click on “taxes and carrier fees” on that same checkout page. The carrier fee will be waived if you buy the flight at the airport, but that fee can vary by a lot, based on the route and date. I have seen them range from $10 to $80 on Breeze:
Unfortunately, based on the promo code’s terms, it’s only redeemable online and not at the airport. But if any readers happen to be at an airport, let us know if an agent there can somehow use the 25% discount code with the airport discount!
