Default Which airline within Skywest?

As a new hire FO, do you choose among Delta, Alaska, American, and United, or do you only choose CRJ vs. ERJ / base?

For example, if you choose CRJ, would the "airline" branding depend on which base you are assigned (ex. Houston - United Connection, Dallas - American Eagle)? Or, would you potentially be flying on all the CRJs branded for multiple "airlines" at Skywest?

I couldn't find this answered anywhere else. Thanks!

CRJ you will fly all code share except Alaska.. some bases fly multiple DL,UA,AA some just AA (PHX). That changes monthly... ERJ almost the same concept. Add Alaska, take away AA. SLC for example flys DL and UA flights. SAN only flys Alaska..

You bid for base and equipment and that will drive what partners you fly. On reserve you could be flying any of them as you can be deadheaded to another base, start on a flight that originated from another base, etc.

It will really depend on your base. SFO/LAX you'll mostly get united flying. DFW you'll get American flying. DTW you'll mostly get Delta.
