SwisAir or USAir - need help

We're flying one-way from BCN to either Orlando or Daytona Beach on April 27 (after a cruise).
The lowest fares I've found are either $586 with SwissAir from BCN to Geneva, then on to JFK with a 3 hr layover there, then JetBlue to Orlando, arr. at 8:52 PM

The other option is $630, Aer Lingus to Dublin, then USAir to Phil, 2 hr 45 min layover there, then on to Orlando @10:16 PM

Both have good times with no-stress connections, so it's a matter of choice as to airlines. Of course, there is the matter of trying to take-off from JFK at 5:45 PM on JetBlue.....

Any thoughts as to what would make for the most comfortable flight?
Thanks

I have always enjoyed SwissAir more than USAir. Of course, coach travel is not particularly pleasant these days on most airlines. Since SwissAir is cheaper and arrives at a better time, I would choose them.

Swiss (air and now Airlines) is one of the best European airlines, an old favorite in our family.

I wouldn't hesitate between the two.

Thanks for the replies. We were leaning that way, as we prefer foreign carriers for overseas flights, but I feel more confident about the choice now.
We've never flown SwissAir, so we're looking forward to trying it out.
Thanks again
