Starting on November 2, 2014, Delta’s shuttle service between New York and Boston (BOS) will be moving from the Marine Air Terminal to Terminal C at LaGuardia as well as upgauging these flights to Boeing 717’s.
Delta will still operate their shuttle service to Chicago (ORD) and Washington DC (DCA) from the Marine Air Terminal at this time, however if this change goes well I wouldn’t be surprised if Delta moves all their shuttle flights over to Terminal C or D.
LGA-BOS shuttle fliers can expect the following with this move:
- With the relocation, in addition to the Delta Shuttle experience customers have come to expect, they will now be able to enjoy:
- Access to Delta’s five chef-driven restaurants, an expansive food hall and fresh markets within LGA’s Terminal C
- Dedicated gates and expedited security screening, including convenient access to TSA PreCheck (for eligible customers)
- Larger planes, Boeing 717s, with access to complimentary coffee and newspapers, as well as in-flight Wi-Fi and power from every seat
- Connecting service through Delta’s LGA hub for access to more than 60 additional cities
Customers will continue to enjoy:
- Convenient, top of the hour schedule for Delta Shuttle customers including 15 weekday departures
- Check-in as close as 15 minutes prior to departure without bags or 30 with checked bags
- Complimentary onboard snacks and beverages, including craft beer and wine, in all classes of service
With this change, advance seat assignments available within seat maps beginning August 16, 2014 for travel on/after November 2, 2014.
Boston-based customers will now be able connect through Delta’s LaGuardia hub for access to 64 additional cities whereas before you weren’t able to book a connecting flight through LGA if you had to switch terminals.
It also sounds like the LGA-BOS shuttle will be upgauged to Boeing 717’s, meaning a mainline aircraft experience on this route.
