Hey, all. I'm currently planning a trip to San Francisco in October and I, being a very indecisive person, can't, well, decide which carrier to take. I've discarded ATA and Delta because of times and price respectively. The rest I've pretty much done a pros and cons thing.
(ATR), 763, 763, 757, 757, (ATR)
Pros: Good times, MRTC on two of the segments, and right now it's a good price and I have the option of leaving from MAZ thus avoiding a 2 1/2 hour van ride to and from San Juan.
Cons: Never taken AA, but from what I've read and been told, AA's service can pretty much be summarized as "eh."
2. United/US Airways
A320, 777, A320, A330
Pros: Pretty much the same as AA's. Flying on a 777 (unless there's an equipment change, of course), channel 9 (if on).
Cons: None that I can think of, really. Well, it does get to SFO an hour later than AA, but that's about it.
738, 738, 757, 757
Pros: I had a very good experience with them last year and the times are just as good as AA's.
Cons: Price. The best times are around $70 more than AA or UA, but I'd be willing to pay it if I can since I know it's worth it.
Pros: The least expensive option, DirecTV for half of the segments, would get me to OAK before noon.
Cons: 2:00 AM departure which wouldn't be so bad if I had a car, but I'd be taking a public line van to San Juan so I'd be waiting around at SJU for the better part of the previous day.
So, that would be it. Okay, to be honest, I normally don't like these kind of posts myself, but it's either asking you all for advice or flipping a coin a couple times. I'd rather not do that. So... thanks. ^^
