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.
