Breeze Airways is cutting back on its cross-country service for 2023, starting on May 1. The budget airline will no longer offer its flights connecting Westchester County Airport in New York and Los Angeles International Airport.

The change in service was confirmed by The Points Guy. Airline spokesperson Gareth Edmondson-Jones told the travel site¬†that the route consumed too many resources and didn’t work with the rest of Breeze’s flight schedule. The route was one of 10 that Breeze Airways offered to Los Angeles.

Travelers can still catch Breeze flights to LA from Bradley International Airport, Charleston International Airport, Jacksonville International Airport, Louis Armstrong International Airport, Norfolk International Airport, Pittsburgh International Airport, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport, and Richmond International Airporte.

While the Westchester to LA route is the soonest to go, there will be another May route cut for Westchester. By the end of the month, there will no longer be service connecting it to Sarasota Bradenton International Airport in Florida. Later in the year, Breeze plans on eliminating 24 seasonal routes at the end of Labor Day. Edmondson-Jones said that nearly all routes that will end after Labor Day 2023 will be back for Summer 2024 service.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
