That would be spelled SkyWest, not Skywest (notice the capitalized "W" ). Anyways... yes those are true... but what about tail numbers such as N1105G and N1110J? Hmmm???
Well I haven't a clue either, but I do believe those are both ex-WestAir aircraft as well... when WestAir lost their UAX contract, SkyWest essentially assumed the assets of the company, including the aircraft and the employees (the majority of them).
Head in the clouds... yet feet planted firmly on the ground.

I dont really find them to be too bad. I've done over 80 flights on Brasilia's. If you are claustrophobic, then I'd recomend that you sit in the behind the wing exit at row 9. There is about 3 feet of legroom in that row. The ceeling on the Brasilia is at 5'9. If you are taller than that, you will have to duct down as you walk through the cabin. Since I'm only 5'6, I dont really have a probelm on the Brasilia.
Personally, I find that the CRJ is a bit more claustrophobic than the Brasilia. I think that is has something to do with the low small windows and the 2x2 seating.
Short flights in the Brasilia are really not that bad. Especially if you get on one of SkyWest's back galley Brasilias (a good part of the fleet has the aft galley). It makes the plane feel a lot bigger.
