Flights for Alaska Airlines[edit]

Starting in May, SkyWest will operate flights for Alaska Airlines to replace Horizon flights on a few routes. (I don't know many details on aircraft or routes)

Do you have a source for this? I'm trying to find one, but can't. Jhunt47 (talk) 04:15, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Here is a link to the Alaska Airlines announcement: [1]

Can we remove the "request for verification box" in the history section?[edit]

a number of sources have been added, think the "This section needs additional citations for verification" can be removed for the history section?

i think it may need a more coherent re-write but most sentences now have sources? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Another user hawk (talkcontribs) 22:52, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't think so, there is still a paragraph that's uncited and also a {{citation needed}} tag or two. So the {{refimprove}} tag still should be there. —Compdude123 (talk) 17:51, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Painfully obvious that SkyWest has become a "National" airline[edit]

For those who care enough to address it in the article, According to Business Dictionary, the definition of a "National Carrier" is any carrier whose revenue falls between $100MM and $1Billion annually (http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/national-carrier.html). Well according to their own profit and loss statement,(http://inc.skywest.com/invest/investor_releases/SKYW%20Earnings%202Q11v%202%20%282%29.pdf) as of August 2011 they generated just short of $1 Billion in one quarter alone. Further, I was just at an event where SkyWest brass spoke. They are touting themselves as a "National" carrier now. Don't mistake the equipment that they are using (Canadair Regional Jets) for the fact that their route structure spans the enitre lower 48, plus Alaska now. I could care less as to how it's presented in this article, if at all, but I figured it was worth mentioning. --XB70Valyrie (talk) 03:52, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

jacdec - misleading information[edit]

The methodology of the JACDEC so called "safety rating" is poor at best and media articles have been adjusted/withdrawn due to this. http://crankyflier.com/2013/01/29/a-terrible-way-to-rank-airline-safety/ http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/gallery?section=news/consumer&id=8967548&photo=1

Adding misleading information creates no value. If necessary any addition should reflect a balanced discussion.
