besides the announced upgrade/changes (DH8 to CRJ/ER4) by DL for JFK-SYR, JFK-ALB, and new 2X daily ER4 service betwen JFK-BGM, I found a few others:
JFK-BUF goes from 4X CRJ in February to 5X CRJ in March, then to 6X CRJ in April.
2 of 4 JFK-SYR DH8s go to ER4's (announced) - the remaining 2 to go RJ by the summer along with all 4 JFK-ALB DH8's.
All 4 JFK-PWM DH8 flights go ER4 in April.
3 of 4 JFK-BTV DH8 flights go ER4 in April.
2 JFK-PIT flights swap CRJ to ER4.
Both JFK-IND flights swap CRJ to ER4.
1 of 4 JFK-BWI and JFK-ORF DH8 flights go to a CRJ in April.
BOS-BGR goes from 3X CRJ to 4X BE1 in April.
** New 2X BOS-ALB begins in April.
looking at the BE1 schedule at BOS, it appears that 1 Beech sits in BOS between 12:10pm and 5:40pm and then sits in ALB from 6:57pm all night until 8:00am the next morning, which leads me to beleive they might add a few afternoon flights to the schedule somewhere.

Additional changes at JFK (some of these were already announced):
- JFK-PDX resumes April 19 with the 738
- Second JFK-LGW starts April 1 (763ER)
- Second JFK-JAX starts April 1 (CRJ)
- 3x daily JFK-DFW starts April 17 (E170) - shifted from LGA-DFW
Also, spring marks the start of two banks (and some rolling schedules) of transatlantic departures and arrivals:
- Transatlantic departures will start as early as 4:20pm, with quite a few departures in the 4-5pm slot (ATH, KBP, IST, ACC, etc.), reduced number between 5 and 7pm, and then another bank in the 7-8pm hour (TXL, FRA, NCE, MXP, VCE, MAD, BRU, DUB, LGW, PSA, OTP, etc.).
- Transatlantic arrivals will also start much earlier (e.g., with AMS coming in at 11:20am, LGW at 12:10pm), with one bank between 2pm and 3pm and another late bank between 5 and 6pm (IST, BUD, LGW, FCO, ATH, ACC, OTP, PSA, etc.)

I also know they have put in bids to serve some EAS routes (ART, OGS, and MSS - all small northern tier NY State markets) to BOS. I was expecting to see things like BOS-ISP, SYR, BTV, and maybe places like PQI, BHB, LEB, etc.

This bid was approved. ART will be the hub with flights to ALB, Massena and Ogdensburg. ART will also be the maintence base for 8 BEH aircraft. Ogdensburg and Massena flights will first go to ART and then to BOS or change planes and go to ALB.

Well, I remeber a few years back when DL was operating the JFk service before it was dropped and resumed, they had said they were interested in BOS service from Ireland anyway. Its also being talked about a lot in DUB!
I believe that was always their intention. Because London is such a business powerhouse, having more than one flight everyday really helps for the business traveler. This way they have an early return in the morning, and one in the late afternoon.
My point is that DELTA should not really be expanding out of Boston because they are no longer a favorite airline of Boston. It was mentioned last month that they are going to have to give up their shinny new terminal and reduce capacity and free up gates....yet they are adding flights? Do they want to become more delay stricken than they already are....more flights + less gates sounds like a way to do GREAT business. I think they should just give up!
They launched SONG...which was GREAT....even better than B6 and look at where it got them. Song is gone...and DELTA claims to be changing....but is not really.
I would like to see them go and see UA and B6 increase their presence in the BAWSTON area! Thats all!
