Leaf springs or Full Air ride?

I have a '29 dodge 4 door, it's going to be a cruiser, not a racer _ever_

I want as good a ride as possible (even though I'm using solid front and rear axles)

I'm thinking of using air springs and 4 links front and rear. I like the idea of adjustable ride height. Meaning I can set the ride height and if the load varies, like I have 5 big friends in the car, the ride height stays the same as if it's just the 100 lb wifey.

The question is will an air bagged car ride better or worse than a well done leaf spring car? is it even noticeable?

I assume a bagged car would be much better, but I've never ridden in one.
