Comair travel on SkyWest

Maybe someone working for either of these two airlines can answer my question...

Can an employee who works for Comair fly free on SkyWest flights operated under the Delta codeshare?

I live in Tucson, AZ and I know my parents would love to non-rev it to SLC on skywest (delta connection), but am not sure if they would be limited to Delta mainline or not.

Any thoughts/answers would be much appreciated.

i work for skywest and my folks can't ride on comair for free. they can't even ride on delta for free. i'm not sure about comair, but i would think it's the same. if comair parents get to ride on delta for free, then there is a possibilty they would get on us for free. all delta folks get a free ride on us. i'm guessing your folks will have to throw down for an ID-75 or ID-90.

the odd thing is that my folks ride on united for free, as well as any UA express carrier (ACA, Whiskey, etc....). but delta gives us no such love on either mainline or connection... -sr.

Comair's travel benefits handout said that mainline delta, comair, and ASA were all free. Thanks for the info. I'm definitely curious as to how codeshare flights are handled.
