We’ve been hearing a lot about Breeze Airways, the startup airline launched by JetBlue founder David Neeleman. Aiming to provide low prices and good service, the airline has been busy launching new routes — or not. Now, several new routes have either been cut or postponed, including a new launch from Los Angles (LAX). Let’s take a look.

Breeze Airways Routes Delayed

Preemptively canceling and delaying several routes will ideally ease congestion and delays, though schedule changes are disappointing to see, especially since Breeze Airways is targeting service to smaller airports.

Most notable among these cuts are several services from Los Angeles (LAX):

  • Providence (PVD), which was scheduled to start June 29
  • Norfolk (ORF), which was scheduled to start June 30
  • Savannah (SAV), which was scheduled to start July 1

Canceled just before launch, these routes are now scheduled to begin in February 2023 — that’s quite a delay!

Other routes have been delayed as well, though not as drastically as those Los Angeles flights:

  • Las Vegas (LAS) to Hunstville (HSV): starting September 4, 2022
  • Las Vegas (LAS) to Charleston (CHS): starting September 7, 2022
  • Westchester (HPN) to Jacksonville (JAX): starting October 6, 2022
  • Westchester (HPN) to Savannah (SAV): starting October 7, 2022
  • Savannah (SAV) to New Orleans (MSY): starting October 7, 2022
  • Los Angeles (LAX) to Westchester (HPN): starting November 2, 2022
  • Savannah (SAV) to Providence (PVD): starting February 3, 2022

Hot Tip: Check out Breeze Airways’ first class options on the A220-300, available on 10+ routes.

If Your Flight Has Been Canceled

If your flights were canceled, you should have received an email indicating that you can rebook or secure a refund via the Breeze app (iOS, Android) or on your account at flybreeze.com. If you have an existing Guest Account, Breeze will be depositing 10,000 BreezePoints (~$100 value) into your account within 7 to 10 business days.

Other Options

Depending on where you’re looking to go, you may still find service. Savannah (SAV), for example, includes direct service from 8 different airlines, including Air Canada, Allegiant, American, Avelo, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Sun Country, and United.

Otherwise, you can always opt for a connecting flight, though everyone knows that layovers add a significant amount of time to your flights.

Final Thoughts

This is an unfortunate development, though not necessarily unexpected. As a new airline, it’s expected that there will be some growing pains. However, the founder has a history of success (who wouldn’t call JetBlue successful?), so we’re expecting big things once the kinks have all been ironed out.
