I'm moving across country and have a small dog to take along.

Certainly flying is faster than driving 3,000 miles and there of course would be some amount of stress to the animal either way; drive or fly.

What are your thoughts?

We moved to Cali from Boston in 1996 with our cat. We got a sedative from the vet and gave it to him before the flight. He was under the plane in the pressurized area. When we landed, we picked him up at a certain counter near baggage claim. I was only 8 at the time but I remember him being really groggy. He wasn't meowing/howling like crazy like he did when we took him to the vet. Once the sedative wore off, he just explored our new house.

Depending on the size of your dog, you might be able to bring him on the plane. My friend just moved to Florida. She has a dog that's the size of a cat and she brought him on the plane in a carrier.

I have never flown with a pet but I do agree with the above poster. I think you can get a sedative and nowadays, if the pet is small they can be with you but you might check with the airlines on that.
