Best U.S Airline?

What is the best US Airline? (to travel inside the states)

I want to go from Tampa-Washington and i've traveled with American, United, Continental And Us Airways. I hated them all, does it gets any better than any of those? (Continental was decent though)

Re: Best U.S Airline?

I have only flown with Continental a couple of times and so far I don't have any complaints. At least they didn't make you pay for your own tv-screen, headset and blanky . (some US airlines do).

Re: Best U.S Airline?

For overall service Southwest was far and away the best a few years ago. They were almost never late, very friendly, and the rates were very cheap. I dunno how they compare these days, given the fact that all of the carriers have cut way back on services in an effort to keep afloat. But Southwest has historically had a very good reputation.

Re: Best U.S Airline?

Southwest is very cheap, it's good, but simple and basic.

Otherwise probably Continental is the best. They all suck though.

I like Continental. I once flew Continental Business/First RT to Europe, almost couldn't believe the pampering.

Southwest is the best but they don't fly from Tampa to Washington.

American Airlines suck. They kept me on a plane on the runway for 5 hours in Dallas during a storm.
