Re: Breeze - News and Discussion Thread

So they want alternative airports with little or no service. What about LAL (Lakeland, FL). They have been trying to get service for sometime, currently has none and less than an hour from TPA and Disney World. Lakeland is also offering incentives for service! https://www.theledger.com/news/2020030...

Re: Breeze - News and Discussion Thread

I’m thinking it’s gonna be the big Florida markets. The first two maybe being MCO and FLL. There’s plenty of unserved opportunity from both for a 2-4x weekly flight. In total, they want 6 southern focus cities, bases whatever you wanna call them. Should be interesting.
