I was looking at some pictures taken at Newark NJ and spotted a Delta Shuttle B727-232. Did Delta ever had a Shuttle service from EWR? All Shuttles flights out of the NYC area originate in LGA don't they? I don't think Detla ever had Shuttles flights out of EWR. This picture probably shows a Shuttle 727 at EWR serving as a back up aircraft or extra capacity was needed.

Delta Shuttle aircraft both the old 727s when they were around and the 737-800s were used on Weekends around DL's "regular" network, DL Shuttle 737-800s operated often between EWR and FLL and Orlando until Song "took off".
I flew on a DL Shuttle 727 from MCO - Atlanta in '97, they don't operate that many shuttle flights on the weekends since they are geared towards business travelers. So they use the all coach aircraft on leisure weekend routes especially to Florida.
