I am currently on holiday in Orlando Fl and are planning to go to Seattle for a few days. Just curious as to which US Airline offers the best first class product on this route. I tried NWA first class (LGW-MCO) last year and wasn't too impressed.

Most will say that CO has the best domestic F, especially if you are flying transcon (such as if you were to fly MCO-EWR-SEA). However, that's somewhat out of the way, and MCO-IAH-SEA would be a better routing. Either way, your F service should be pretty good (not great). If not CO, then try NW through DTW or MSP. Many say that NW isn't too bad upfront either, but unlike CO, their planes are older and they don't have any IFE. The large majority of CO's aircraft have overhead LCD screens every few rows.

Delta and US Airways' first class is nothing to write home about. On Delta, all it is is free booze, a bigger seat and a few more passes of the snack basket. Same with US Airways. It's worth getting if you're an elite and are getting the complimentary upgrade, but I certainly wouldn't pay for it out of my own pocket.

Quoting Misbeehavin (Reply 3): And that the LGW-MCO flight you did couldn't have been on NW unless you connected in MSP or DTW
It was through Detroit on the way and Mineapolis on the return.
It wasn't that I hated NW, but i guess I was expecting more. However, the FA's were extremely friendly and the flights on time.
What about AA? I am a Executive club silver member and oneworld Sapphire.
It would be good to get miles, even though I came here on UA / VS through IAD, which by the way is awful (not trying that again).

US First is ok (food is decent, nice crew most of the time, seats are good), but CO has a far suppirior first to any US based carrier in my oppinion. The food is great and service is excellent. I would go CO if I could, but in my oppinion, US domestic first has gone downhill.
