I am taking DL on ORF-BOS, and than DL Shuttle on BOS-LGA. Can I check in at ORF and/or online for my Shuttle flight also or do I have to check in at BOS for it??


Thanks,

Joe

If it is the same PNR It is treated just like another DL flight, so through checkin applies.

Several people a day go BGR-BOS-LGA

And with the new terminal A you will not have to reclear security either.

I check in all the time for Shuttle flights. It just prints out ANY under your seat assignment, and it's pretty much a free for all at the gate (first come, first serve). Just go to the gate and try and get in line relatively early if you want your pick of a seat.

C'mon now don't make it sound like Southwest. He will be checked-in when he departs ORF so he has a seat on the flight. Most Shuttle customers do not arrive until about 15-20 minutes prior. In fact most seats are sold within 30 minutes of departure.  veryhappy 
If your seat is important to you board 30 minutes prior, if not board 5 minutes prior.

Connecting to the Shuttle is only offered with DCI flights into LGA and BOS. It was an easy way to provide NYC service without having to connect BGR or YFC, for example, with both BOS and LGA without having to actually provide service to both airports.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Is there a seperate terminal for Delta and Delta Shuttle? Because I know that at LGA there is the Marine Air Terminal that is just for Delta Shuttle. I have only flown DL into BOS once and don't remember it too well.



Thanks,
Joe

As said, at BOS everything has now been consolidated. Both the Shuttle and Delta Connection are at the main terminal, with DLS at gates 1,2,3 and DCI at gates 8-12, IIRC.

Heck, I've stepped out of my car in Central Parking at 547 am before and didn't rush and easily made the 600 am shuttle. That's the great thing about it!

Is there a seperate check in line or something? I don't get how you can just basically walk on?

I've always done online check in. I haven't flown the Shuttle since the new terminal has opened, but before, Delta had a small section of Terminal B that was just DL Shuttle flights, where there was a small check-in desk and a couple of security checkpoints. The only departures from that area were to LGA, and for a while Comair CRJs to DCA. I believe now that there are 3 seperate security lines at BOS though, one for Gold/Platinum/Crown Room/First Class people, one for Shuttle flyers, and one for everyone else. Basically, it's geared toward the business crowd, as a lot of people do just show up within 20 minutes of departure. Heck, I've got a ticket receipt downstairs that is a Delta Shuttle Fast Ticket (it's from a while ago), but it was a handwritten ticket that you just got at the airport. Basically though, they would always just call boarding and you'd get in line and board. No zones, no preboarding (keep in mind that the majority of travellers are either Medallions or have Medallion companions, especially the peak hour ones), etc. It's basically you take your boarding pass and board like normal, but it's just a line and you grab whatever seat is open.

It's BCN boarding. Your boarding pass is a number (You will have a boarding pass). So say your the 35th passenger to check-in. You will have a 0035 just below where you seat assignment would be. Instead of a seat number it says "ANY" meaning any seat onboard. Once DL hits ship capacity the flight is full. You board when you want after boarding has commenced and take any seat on board. Remember when arriving in the Marine Air Terminal at LGA deplaning will take place from both the front and rear doors (assuming weather cooperates) so you can take one of the last rows and be one of the first to baggage claim or ground transportation.
As you are connecting in BOS you won't need to leave the secure area and just head to gates 1-3 where the Shuttle flights depart from and board whenever you are ready. However there won't be any difference when checking in at ORF as that is standard airport check-in.

So that's what those numbers are...I've always wondered about that...didn't know that's how it worked. A lot of the times (due to OLCI), it's 001-005, but that makes sense. All I know is I get in line and grab a seat, and a few minutes later we're on our way out to the active...it sure beats the US Shuttle in my opinion (assigned seats there do slow down the operation a little bit...plus, Shuttle seats are a lot nicer in Y, and the only distinction between F and Y on the US Shuttle is a bigger seat and more personalized service...the booze is free in both cabins).

This should be very interesting! It seems as if I will be one of the few college kids on this type of flight.
