Best way to get from Quito to Cuenca Ecuador?

I am going to Cuenca in September and am flying into Quito on American. Does anyone have experience getting from Quito to Cuenca? What is the best way--land? Air? Best carrier?

"Best" is pretty subjective. I prefer flying to maximize my time there. LAN and TAME both fly there. By land will take approximately 14 hours, which would be fun if you could break it up into a couple of days. A private driver, however, will cost more (with lodging and meals included) what the air fare would be.

We flew aerogal having come in from Amsterdam. Hassle free, on time, friendly and cheap. $90 return for two.
