I'm pretty sure they were operating 737's exclusively. Doesn't surprise me at all as well, it seemed a long shot. Although the cross border Canadian traffic might have made for some realistic routes to AZ or CA.
Their flights were operated by Xtra Airways, who only operates 737s. I guess if Western doesn't restart operations, Xtra could always shift the a/c they had dedicated to the operation over to the other airline they fly for, Skyvalue.

Wow, I wonder if the end for Western has come already. According to Flytecomm, an Xtra Airways flight landed at SAN this morning, probably the Western one, although that would seem to contradict the info in this article.

Wow... that Myav shot is dated January 27! That's when I was there! I have a picture of the exact same plane at the exact same time... I don't recall seeing anyone else there with me when I was there, but I guess I was wrong...
Anyway, sad to hear they're ceasing ops. Hope they start up again!

Quoting S12PPL (Reply 7):
Even Indy made sure they had enough cash to last a year, didn't they?
Considering they were ACA, a vendor for years before and with all the cash they had on-hand, you'd think management would have been smart enough to stop the experiment and possibly prolong the company.
