I think it depends on the route/plane combination. In some cases one airline will offer PTV's on a route that another doesn't.

I would personally put United over American, but haven't flown continental recently, so can't comment.

AFAIK all of UA's transatlantic flights now have PTV's in economy class (both 777 and 767-300 a/c)

I'm a little partial on this subject. Domestic--it has to be Northwest followed by United. Internation--Northwest or United. It does, however, depend on where you are going.

Delta is the best. Alot of routes are the 767, which is a very nice plane. Delta is also one of the biggest airlines across the Atlantic.

Delta

As I said before, I guess I'm a little partial to Northwest Airlines...and for good reason. The first time I ever flew Delta was the first time that I could not fly NWA. On that first flight with Delta, the engine exploded on take-off. It took the captain over thirty minutes to tell the passengers what had happened, and he said that he had been in contact with the maintenance personnel in Atlanta. We had just left the ground in Salt Lake City. Not too many people were pleased with any of this.
