Delta will be discontinuing their West Coast Shuttle flights as of January 4, 2018, as they rebrand them to regular domestic service, which essentially means no more complimentary drinks in the main cabin, among some other changes.
Wondering what’s changing? Below are current Delta West Coast Shuttle offerings:
- Check-in as close as 30 minutes prior to departure
- Dedicated check-in counters exclusively for Shuttle customers
- Gates located near security
- Complimentary newspapers
- Complimentary onboard snacks provided by Luvo, a California-based lifestyle food brand, offering great-tasting, good-for-you food
- Complimentary beverages in-flight, including craft beer and wine in all classes of service
Delta Shuttle Routes being discontinued as of 1/4/18:
- Los Angeles and San Francisco
- Los Angeles and Seattle
- Seattle and San Francisco
Delta Shuttle Routes Remaining after 1/4/18:
- New York (LGA) and Washington D.C.
- New York (LGA) and Boston
- New York (LGA) and Chicago
With this change, there is no actual change to these routes. You’ll recall Boeing 717’s Added on Delta West Coast Shuttle a couple of years ago. Starting this summer, Delta will operate flights between LAX-SEA, LAX-SFO and SEA-SFO using all mainline aircraft while reducing some frequencies.
On the East Coast, we saw some news earlier this month with regards to their Shuttles, as Delta Shuttle at LaGuardia Moving Terminals, as they’ve left the Marine Air Terminal to consolidate to Delta’s main Terminals C and D.
