I would not blame you at all. The A220 ops are getting worse instead of getting better. I will say that there have been several 8xxx flights operating daily that are hopefully new captain check rides. But it would be nice if Breeze was more transparent on the situation. I will tell people to avoid Breeze A220s until operations approve dramatically.
This got me thinking of something. Do you think Breeze would've had the same entry into service and/or reliability related issues if they had opted for the E2 E-Jets instead of the A220?
It likely depends on if there is type certification commonality between the E2 and regular 190/195s. However, I’m not sure the E2 series meets the mission Breeze envisions. It has a much shorter range and a much narrower cabin. I think the A220 is the right plane. I just think Breeze (with help from the FAA) have made a mess of the launch.
Since other airlines can fly the A220 more reliably, Breeze has indeed made a mess of the launch.
The E2 doesn't have the range Breeze needs. It also would have fewer seats, in particular J seats. The E19x orders were an opportunity purchase because:
1. Breeze wanted to accelerate entry into service.
2. Used E19x were readily available and cheap
3. At that time, I recall there being E-jet pilots available
I'm sorry to say, the issues are on Breeze's management.
