SkyWest bags Comair jets

Delta Air Lines stripped its Comair subsidiary of some 70-seat regional jet flying at Cincinnati and assigned it instead to SkyWest Airlines. Already a Delta Connection carrier, SkyWest will take over the additional 11 aircraft in February. Comair, meanwhile, faces a strike threat by its pilots union, which has had yet to agree on concessions despite bankruptcy court pressure.
