Delta Shuttle and the Boeing 717 Saga

The BackRowFlier is back at it with a piece of nostalgia and business insight. This week he brings us his take on Delta’s decision to launch their newly acquired Boeing 717‘s on shuttle routes from New York City LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD) and Washington, DC (DCA). The 717 will increase capacity and be outfitted with in-flight wifi and complimentary snacks. Also of note is his fondness for the 717 and their powerful rear mounted Rolls Royce engines that boom throughout the cabin on takeoff. The 717 is making a comeback and Delta is hoping it aid in increasing profits in the 100 seat market.
