Delta Air Lines launched their new New York (LGA)-Boston shuttle service today on mainline Boeing 717 aircrafts from Terminal C. We wrote about this when it was annoucned this summer, but today marks the first day of the new service.

As a reminder 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

Bottom Line:

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.

I personally think that Delta will move their Washington DC and Chicago shuttle flights out of the Marine Air Terminal in the near future, as it doesn’t make sense to be operating out of separate terminals since you can’t connect between the two easily.

  1. do you realize how many typos you have in all of your postings/articles? It doesn’t look very professional.

  2. While connections weren’t an easy option, Terminal A (the MAT) was an absolute advantage for the shuttle – in that there were few to no amateur travelers. You could turn up 20 minutes before departure (assuming you had your BP) and could pretty much always make the flight. (I’ve never missed.)

    Assuming the security setup in C/D (I’m not sure where they moved shuttle to) is not a completely segregated shuttle-only security setup, that 20-minute bogey is pretty much off the table. With lots of novices getting moved into PreCheck queues, it can take a while to clear that line. Further, once though security, at MAT, it was but a minute or two walk to any gate. Unless they make the immediate closest gate the designated gate, the security-to-gate time will increase due to distance and other obstacles (slow moving pax).

    I know why DL is making the change…it has some definite positives for them…but there are some drawbacks.

    I’m flying next Friday. Notably, the Boston shuttle now has assigned seats, too. I miss the old one cabin, open seating setup. Had a nice feel to it.
