    My choice would be Delta to Atlanta and a connection from there.

    Found continental good to Alabama. Booked on their site, bit round about via newark, but you can add in a New York stop over if you have time. Currently offering New York to Orlando for $59 e/w...

    Virgin is alright, although you have to get and from Gatwick/Manchester seperately to get on their flight. However their Orlando routes tend by "bucket and spade" routes, and therefore the service can be a bit hit or miss compared to their higher profile routes.

    From Dublin direct, it might be worth looking at Continental (via Newark) or Delta (via Atlanta/JFK) or US Airways (via Philidelphia)

    B.A. would be streets ahead of Virgin imo. We have flown 5 times to Florida - 4 with B.A. and once with Virgin. Was not that impressed with Virgin.

    You can book a B.A. flight from Dublin - Heathrow - Orlando. Checkout for flights, or (thats who we have previously booked with).

    I flew Delta to Tampa a while back.

    Dublin>Shannon>Atlanta hub>Tampa.

    Delta were only okay, we flew from Dublin and landed in Shannon to be told that the flight was overbooked. They asked for volunteers to leave the plane so the people at Shannon could get on! :eek:

    Then, as I was in cattle class, I had to take the vegetarian option for dinner as the other meals had all been taken :(

    Also, my left earphone didn't work on my headset and the monitor I was watching was not in good shape with very frequent picture jumps before it settled again for five minutes :(

    Only okay, wouldn't fly with them again.
