I have basically 3 choices for an upcomgin trip, DSM-HNL:
1. AA DSM-ORD CR7
2. UA DSM-ORD CRJ
3. NW DSM-MSP DC9 (or a selection of commuter craft)
Now, if we don't have our school year extended any more than it has, and I can go the first week of June, a fourth choice would be:
4. CO DSM-IAH ERJ
Now, the number 4 choice I felt was the no-brainer. However, there is still a possibility I won't be off work until the day before, or even have it go over, so the chances are slim.
Any advice would be helpful. A brawl between AA/UA/NW faithful won't be helpful...someone with travel experience on all, if not 2 out of these 3 or 4 carriers would be helpful. I've never done a NW flight yet...any info?

When you come right down to it, there's not a whole lot of difference between any of the domestic carriers these days in terms of service. It's not like you've got a real meaningful choice here. No international or exotic carriers.
Of the choices you list, the 772 is probably the most comfortable aircraft if you're sitting in Economy. Otherwise, go with the best fare and/or timings.
