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)

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 :D . (some US airlines do).

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.

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.

Deltas OKAY...

Jet blue is good for inside the us.

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

so has JetBlue, so has Continental. i don't think this has anything to do with the airline.

no, i rather fly good than cheap.

but dont get me wrong, i wont pay a thousand dollars to fly in first for 1 hour and a half, but it doesn't mean i have to flight in some crappy airline because the fare is cheaper. i don't care about prices, just quality.

I've flown with Continental and it's not a big deal (not after flown with european and southamerican airlines).

What about Northwest?

I fly very frequently on the US. I fly a lot of the time on AA, as Dallas is one of my most frequent destinies, but I would say they are probably the worst, they have a lot of delays and cancellations, and I am not talking about weather but about technical problems, the crew did not arrive, etc.
My best experience so far has been on Delta and Continental, but keep in mind that it is a matter of probabilities. I would pick the most convenient schedule-price combination. If you have connections try to pick a connecting flight that is not the last of the day in case of arriving late. Dont document lugagge if you can, it makes it more flexible to change flights (It is a burden thought to have alot of carry on, and they have strict limitations nowadays).

Have a safe trip.

i dont think there is a "best" unless you are traveling first class. i think there is a "least" bad.

the least horrible of the american airlines i think are jet blue and continental.

if u dont fly enough to care about the frequent flyer programs and are not flying first class then jet blue is without a doubt the way to go. and the truth is i might efven pick jetblue over a lot of the domestic first products out there anyway. their FF program just blows.

Virgin America, but they only travel to select destinations.

I agree. The industry pretty much sucks so having Directv for a few hours can distract me from thinking about how much they all hate their jobs. ;)

JetBlue and Midwest for overall in-flight comfort.

A few years ago I would've recommended AA because they used to give you extra leg room. Obviously, that's not true anymore.
