I was looking to get a family member a gift of a round trip first class ticket on a domestic U.S. carrier. Who in your opinion is the best? What would be the best equipment to use on the trip. I'm looking at something in the area of 2 to 4 hours depending on the final destination but the origination point would be MCO so the choices of airlines are virtually unlimited. Domestic I have been on NW DC9-30 and DL 767.

I personally don't like U.S. carrier's service at all, but I would say CO and UA has a "good" product [both far behind most Europeans and some LatAm carriers, like BA, AF, LA among others]. Just a very personal opinion, based on my personal experiences. Not intended to offend anybody.

TACA is right on the money here. US Flagged carriers, as a rule these days, regardless of where they are going domestically, simply suck for service regardless of ticket class. So, if you must go domestic F, I pick CONTINENTAL as the #1 . . . UA trailing a very, very distant second, and no one else.
