Delta Shuttle to Fly Boeing 717s Between Boston and New York
Airline Moves Some Shuttle Operations from Marine Air Terminal to Terminal C
Starting November 2, Delta will operate the shuttle using larger mainline Boeing 717 planes instead of regional jets. It will also relocate Boston arrivals and departures from the storied Marine Air Terminal at LaGuardia to Terminal C of the airport. Delta took over much of Terminal C when it swapped takeoff and landing slots with US Airways several years ago. The airline is building new departure and arrival facilities at LaGuardia for the Boston shuttle.
The move will give shuttle passengers access to a variety of restaurants in Terminal C, as well as a new Delta Sky Club with runway views. There are no airline lounges at the Marine Air Terminal.
The shuttle to Boston will depart on weekdays at or near the top of the hour from 6:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m.
Delta’s Boeing 717 aircraft accommodate 110 passengers in two cabins. The first-class cabin has 12 seats in a 2-2 configuration. Each seat is 19.6” wide with a pitch of 37”. Delta’s premium economy light section, Economy Comfort, has standard coach seats with widths of 18.1” and pitches of 34”, while the seats in coach are pitched at 31.”
