Jeff,

So far I haven't had any seriously bad experience with any airline. On a return flight, Iceland Air left our luggage in Iceland overnight. Over the years, most airlines we flown have had delays of a few hours. One Alaska flight aborted a take off. It was the 4th of July weekend. If that plane wasn't repaired we weren't going home. Fortunately, it was at PDX which is a repair location for Alaska. My husband was booked on a flight the next day. If we hadn't been able to leave, Alaska would have modified his flight for his new destination.

The American Airlines flight would be from SJC to ATL for a cruise. We would fly the previous day. American Airlines delayed luggage rate is slightly greater than Alaska and Southwest. I will think about it tonight and will probably book the flight.
