Delta Shuttle Upgraded to B717 on West Coast…for many flights

Delta brought its Shuttle product to the West Coast in September 2013 with E175 service between LAX and SFO. The West Coast shuttle will be upgraded this June with 8 of the 15 daily flights going to mainline 717-200 service. The wifi equipped aircraft will accommodate 110 passengers with power in every seat.

“Our Delta Shuttle on the West Coast is designed to connect Silicon Beach to Silicon Valley and make doing business between Los Angeles and San Francisco easier, more enjoyable and more productive,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s vice president of Sales – West. “As we continue to grow in Los Angeles, upgrading to fuel-efficient 717s on a majority of our daily Shuttle flights is a logical next step in strengthening our position in this important market.”

Like the East Coast Shuttle, passengers will continue to receive the following amenities on the West Coast product:

  • 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
  • Complimentary beverages in-flight, including craft beer and wine in all classes of service
