Who Would You Take?

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.

1. AA
(MAZ-)SJU-MIA-SFO-MIA-SJU(-MAZ)
(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
SJU-ORD-SFO-PHL-SJU
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.

3. Continental
SJU-IAH-SFO-EWR-SJU
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.

4. jetBlue
SJU-JFK-OAK-JFK-SJU
A320

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. ^^

As I understand it, on AA as of October, you should still have MRTC on those 757 segments; I don't think they'll start putting the seats back in until this winter. Someone please correct me, though, if I'm wrong. I love MRTC and I hope that someday their financial state allows them to return it to all aircraft although I'm not holding my breath. Additionally, for what it's worth, on my last few flights on AA, the service was very pleasant and professional.
