Two years later, SkyWest acquired several small passenger planes and increased the number of flights to Las Vegas, the nearest major city. In 1976, the company made its first profit. Developing at a small pace in the early years, the company made a big leap in the early 80s, significantly expanding its route network and increasing the number of its air fleet. In 1988 SkyWest Airlines ranked 11th among the country's regional air carriers.

The company is the most prestigious approach to its clientele. People really care about the opinion, which is formed after flights by their company. Even though food is paid, sandwiches, juices, tea and coffee are completely free, not to mention water. If necessary, you will be provided with everything that can only be found in a high-class airplane. Of course, this may require additional payment, however, show me at least one firm that does not take it from its passengers. In general, my opinion, you want to fly in comfort, pay immediately normal money and fully enjoy all the benefits of a comfortable flight.

Planes chic! Taking into account the cost of tickets, waited, we will fly on what may be a wreck, but that ... flight attendants constantly offer free soft drinks, air conditioning worked moderately due to what you feel in the cabin is very comfortable. I recommend.

Also delayed flights. After all placed in the plane, the pilot made a speech, explaining in detail what exactly was the cause of delay. But in fairness it should be noted that having decided to fly back to that, the company was sorry - had to stand at the airport 3 hours, but in the end we have put into this tin can with wings that barely flew to Moscow.

Flight delay was only an hour. As it turned out later, we are very lucky, because in other companies and people can wait for days. So, in general, everything is satisfactory.

20.04.2014 flew from Memphis to Chicago on CRJ200. A small plane, just four rows of seats, is not the newest. The seats are narrow, leather. The flight was detained for two hours as a result of strong gusts of wind in Chigago, and then in Memphis. The girl at the terminal told us - the tower does not allow departure. As a result of this delay, I almost missed the connecting flight from Chicago to Frankfurt. Therefore, when docking in the United States, it's better to have four hours between flights at once. The flight, takeoff and landing went smoothly, without claims. Professional pilot. On board there is one stayud, which offered juices, water, coffee (all included in the cost of the air ticket). For money offered to buy food. In the salon it was allowed to take luggage of the size of the cabin luggage. If the suitcase is not "swollen," it could be placed on a shelf. In Memphis, the entrance to the plane passed through the "gut", and in Chicago people came through the field near the airport building (a ladder dropped from the plane). Maybe delayed the flight. At the airport of Chicago, I did not see buses that would carry passengers across the field. As a rule, all flights departed / spostovyvalis on arrival to the "gut".
