SkyWest reported 1,470,000 block hours for year-to-date October 2018, compared to 1,544,000 block hours year-to-date October 2017, a decrease of 74,000, or 4.8%.  This net change was primarily driven by approximately 69,000 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft and a decrease of approximately 143,000 block hours from its other aircraft types.
