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
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.
