Have any of you ever flown Skywest Airlines? I am interested in them. Delta or United, it does not matter, I am interested in both.

I have flown on SkyWest Airlines over 70 times in the past 16 months. On SkyWest, they have a snack basket which has 4 or 5 different choices. Reciently, they had Cashews (which changes to Almonds monthly), Biscoff cookies, Energy Bars, and a Snack Mix. The flight attendants usually dont mind if you take extra snacks. Once a flight attendant that I flew with a lot, gave me a hudge bag full of snacks.  Smile

The Brasilia's are awsome. I've never flown on one of their CRJs. I will in a short while. Most of the Brasilia's have the aft galley. I think that this makes the plane feel more spacious. For the most part, the brasilia is a fun plane to fly on, and it is always clean. The flight attendants are usually a lot nicer than their mainline partners at United.

HAven't flown Skywest, YET, but they are a MAJOR carrier at my home airport, and will be flying them into SLC for my upcoming move to Maui.

They are an excellent regional. Mike Boyd, who is a frequent critic of airlines is quite complementary of Skywest. The equipment is clean, the F/A's are polite and proficient, and just a well-run organization top to bottom. They are growing rapidly, on both sides. Don't be surprised to see them brake into the national category in a couple of years.
