In addition to the $29 one-way fares, Breeze is offering its “Nicer” fares for an additional $22. This $94 value includes one checked bag and carry-on, extra legroom seat, a drink/snack, priority boarding and the ability to earn 4% more BreezePoints compared to the 2% earned with “Nice” fares. Note that seats are limited and blackout dates may apply to certain routes.

  • Charleston (CHS) to Akron (CAK), Columbus (CMH), Hartford (BDI), Louisville (SDF), New Orleans (MSY), New York (ISP), Norfolk (ORF), Palm Beach (PBI), Pittsburgh (PIT), Providence (PVD), Richmond (RIC) and Tampa (TPA).

To take advantage of this deal, you can either book a one-way flight or book two one-way flights for a round-trip, as I have done below for a CHS — PVD flight.

At this point, you can continue without selecting a seat. If you want a particular seat, you’ll have to pay for standard seating, which starts at $10 for seats in the back of the plane and goes up to $15 for seats closer to the front of the cabin. Alternatively, you can pay $25 or $30 for 10 additional inches of legroom.

Note that one personal item, such as a backpack or purse, is included in the “Nice” fares, but a carry-on bag suitable for the overhead bin and any checked luggage will cost you $20.

Bottom line

Normal Breeze fares are already among the lowest of the low, which means this is a really good deal for low-cost nonstop flights on select routes. Be sure to book your travel by Jan. 5.
