Quito is one of the world's most challenging airports to fly into and whatever airline you do it with, make sure it's in daylight. Although KLM leaves later at night (well, at 2350 or so), it gets into UIO at around 9.30 in the morning. Iberia gets in at about 5.30-6, but if there's any delay or diversion, you could end up landing at night and remember the name of the country - Ecuador - it gets dark relatively early!
Whichever way you choose should be fun anyway, and don't forget a trip report!
