Scenic Airlines Newest SkyMiles Partner

Well this one came in with little fanfare....

Looks like it's only miles on scenic tours, not on scheduled flights.

This doesn't surprise me since Scenic is owned by Skywest and this has been rumored to happen for quite a while

I took a scheduled flight on YR from MCE to VGT to GCT. I didn't buy the tour package, so I "toured" it myself for a $50 savings (so no SkyMiles but oh well). The view is breathtaking, both over the Grand Canyon and between MCE and VGT over the Sierra Nevada. I have another scheduled flight on YR from EKO to ELY to VGT. And it's a pig-free experience, too -- no TSA (or similar) at any of these tiny airports since the planes are 19 seaters and don't connect to anything else!

If I can find my receipt from my tour back in 92, can I get SM credit?
