I am booking a flight for my girlfriend now and its $30 more for her to take CO instead of USA3000. Is USA300 any good? How are they in terms of reliability and comfort. (i'm assuming that safety is not an issue but if it is then please say something!) thank you

Echoing the above, I'd pay the $30 extra to fly her on CO. Without knowing anything about USA3000, I'd say that the comfort of knowing CO's reliability is worth $30, especially if the length of her trip is relatively short.

I also have only heard good things about USA3000 though the one thing to keep in mind is that they most likely do not have any agreements with the scheduled carriers so if the plane does have a mechanical you most likely will wait until it is fixed and not be placed on another carrier to get you home. Since they keep the planes busy flying also most likely there is not another plane to place into service.

In all fairness, CO does have movies on EWR-Florida flights as well. USA3000 will probably serve a little more food, however, but in case of any problems, CO will have many more options to get you to where you need to go. USA3000 only has 1 or 2 planes at a time in EWR; CO probably has more than 40 at any given moment.
