2014 best flights from NYC area to STX?

Anyone have advice re flights NYC (JFK, LGA, EWR) to STX in 2014? Have had so many small plane hassles, guess I'd rather go through Miami than San Juan, but am really open.

Not so easy to get to heaven ISTX) from NYC area anymore -- I remember back when we had direct flight in the '80s!

Planning to fly end of April/mid-May... many thanks.

We go through Miami on American now as American no longer has SJU as a hub. It takes longer but I don't miss the potential problems (maintenance, etc.) with the American Eagle flights out of SJU.

Personally, I would chose the company and route that is cheapest and most convenient to your house.

We're on Delta via JFK to St. Thomas and are taking a puddle jumper one way and the seaplane back from there. It worked out to be cheaper than other options and we've always wanted to try a seaplane.

From the NYC area you may want to check JetBlue. The connect through San Juan but I've been told they are bigger planes.

Thank you all so much for your kind advice -- decided to go with Jet Blue though SJU, only one Cape Air flight... really appreciate the time you took.
