Breeze Airways™ - a new airline merging technology with kindness. Breeze provides nonstop service between underserved routes across the U.S. at affordable fares. With seamless booking, no change or cancellation fees and customized flight features delivered via a sleek and simple app, Breeze makes it easy to buy and easy to fly.
They have three levels of service: “Nice,” “Nicer” and “Nicest,” with roomier seats – and higher prices – for the top two levels. Bags, whether you check them or carry them on, are $20 each. The Portland Press Herald also reported that Frontier Airlines will be back with its seasonal flights to Orlando, Florida. Both of these will fill the void of Elite Airways that sort of just vanished. Either way, it's nice to have options.
