Can't really answer your question since I completed AF basic MANY years ago. But even back then the treatment was much better than the Army and Marine basic. Different missions have different requirements. I know we have several AF members stationed in NC that hopefully will see this post and be able to give you a more updated answer.
General rule of thumb has always been the AF and Navy give you better marketable skills for once you leave the service. Of course the Navy is harder if you have a family, wife and kids, due to sea duty. Marines and Army will be more physically demanding.
