This is a tricky topic to answer. From my experience many of the key caps are interchangeable on the pro/desktop keyboards but not always as there have been a couple of revisions. I have never found the MacBook Air's keys to be interchangeable with other models however as they have a completely different sissor mechanism and connection points (at least with my 2010 model though that has completely different keys anyways since it lacks a backlight). If you need replacement keys I would stick with MacBook pro ones. Is there any specific reason you want to use air keys?

Here is a good article explaining the different sissor spring mechanism revisions, although not the air ones.

Take a look at replacementlaptopkeys.com some are the same and some are not as there seems to be different vendors that made this keyboard, so the answer is really depends on your model, here is the link to the apple retina display macbook pro laptop keys, http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/ser...
