Well, Skywest is now in SEA, with service to SLC on the RJ-200, I believe. How does this compare to the 738/752 service offered by mainline DL aircraft in terms of comfort and service? Does Skywest use the new termianal A at SEA?

Skywest's CR2's are, put simply, crap. I've flown them a couple times SLC-GTF after DL cut mainline. The seats are more narrow, with less pitch and otherwise not very comfortable. The windows are small and low-set so it is difficult to see out. Carry-on baggage space is limited. I'm not sure, but I think the same aircraft operated for UA get a slightly better seat pitch (Recently flew Skywest/UA Express MSO-DEN and it wasn't too bad, but the service for DL made me want to vomit). Service is pretty much standard, and skywest has a very tasty snack mix that is one of my favorites! All in all mainline is definitely a better product. Since snack mix is not a reason to fly, I'd avoid the CRJ.
No, all DL flights operated out of the B Concourse I believe.
And 727 is right, the CRJ-200s are SHITE! I used to fly them SLC-IDA quite frequently, 3-4x a year. They are downright rotten. I also flew them under the UA Express name SLC-SFO-SLC, and SLC-DEN. I would avoid them at all costs. If I were you, I would keep a look out for the all-coach DL Shuttle 738s. I know they're operating into SEA, I'm scheduled to fly one in December. 36" pitch! What a nice treat that will be!
