Those would be my two suggestions as well. Really it shouldn't make too much of a difference since you are heading to the west coast. The only flights that ever seem to get delayed for me are those heading in to or out of the Northeast Corridor. My stomach still tightens up everytime I walk into Newark Intl.

Not sure if you are flying into SD or LA, but I usually have to route through Phoenix when heading into LAX and have had only one problem out of 20+ trips and that's even with the el cheapo US Airways tickets my boss always books for me.

For domestic-to-domestic connections you shouldn't have any problems. And they're used to dealing with snow in the winter, so unless it's a really brutal storm you should be OK.

That's kind of what I was wanting to know. Northwest is generally one of the cheaper airlines that fly from here so that may be the option to go with. AirTran/Delta fly through Atlanta. United flies through Chicago and Denver and American through Chicago. Someone flies to Dallas/Ft. Worth but I can't seem to find which one it is yet.

i think its southwest but dont quote me.

Yeah Southwest is cheap but they don't fly out of the Quad Cities. Northwest does and tends to be cheaper than United, Delta or American.

I've had very good luck with Northwest - except for my last trip where they had the plane on the runway ready for takeoff before realizing they hadn't fueled it yet. They had to take us back to the terminal and fuel up or it would have been a pretty short flight. :-B :-o

Yeah, if you're a member of the Illuminati and are trying to bring about the New World Order.
