Bottom Line

Delta is really trying to increase their Boston service, and this latest announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to me. Nonstop service to San Francisco is a great addition to Boston, as well as the Saturday service to several Caribbean destinations. As JetBlue has a hub in Boston, Delta is really trying to win over some marketshare, and these new routes will help with that.

Feel free to comment below with your thoughts on this latest service addition from Delta.

  1. Being a BOS DL flyer, this is good news, especially the SF flight. Right now getting to SF and LAX on DL is on 737, and not always the newer ones. Jet Blue has the Mint product now out of BOS, so hopefully DL will step it up.
