I'm having a bit of trouble deciding between which airline to travel with. I'm looking to depart around noon from LA on 08/06 so they're all pretty good on that front. On the way back on the 8th though I want to leave after 6. Preferably about 8.
Mainly just because I want to do some further sightseeing on the Saturday and get dinner before getting the BART to SFO.
Any suggestions? I've heard very mixed reviews about UA but they have the latest departure times on the Saturday. I'm also inclined to go with AA on the way there for the M80/M83.
I don't mind splitting carriers either. Any advice for the way back?
I hear they are FANTASTIC! My buddy flew them and he loved it so much!
Regarding the primary question, out of those 3 i would go with AA, but it is really your call, if you want to spend alot of time there on your last day take UA, plus ch9 is always a pleasure.
If you are looking for something new, i would recomend Virgin America.
The sky is no longer the limit, but the mere minimum

I had the chance to fly Virgin America from SFO-SAN in May and would definitely choose to fly with them over UA in most cases, but on a flight that short I think that picking the most convenient schedule is the way to go. It looks like taking UA would get you an additional 2 hours to spend in San Francisco, which I think certainly outweighs any advantages the VX (or AA, or WN) product might have over UA on a 1 hour flight.

I'd say VX or WN. Your midday departure from LAX should mitigate the security lines at Terminal 1 you see in the morning. VX is nice, though for such a short flight, you won't really be able to take advantage of their full product. They will have limited food available, and it won't be worth it to pay for TV.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
