Went to book the last Shuttle for Thursday night from LGA to DCA and there are no longer any Shuttle after 7PM. DL had gone from and 8P and a 9P Shuttle to an 8:35P Shuttle, and now only to a 7P Shuttle. Makes it hard to have an early dinner meeting in NYC and then make to DC or vice versa. Guess I'll have to rely exclusively on Acela from this point forward.

Oddly enough they haven't updated their website ( https://www.delta.com/planning_reservations/plan_flight/flight_partners/delta_shuttle/delta_shuttle_schedules/index.jsp#mar25 ) but their timetables show a different schedule.

On July 11th, when the last part of the US Airways slot swap took effect, Delta had to make many changes out of DCA. They tried to preserve all of the flights to the hubs, at the expense of a few frequencies on the shuttle.

You can still use US Airways which has 8pm and 9pm departures.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

In other news, you should just depend on Acela. Getting to LGA, boarding a shuttle, and flying to National is far more frustrating.

I'm Platinum on DL so I prefer to fly them when I can.

From where I live though on the east side, and given the unreliability of Acela that I have experienced in the past, I actually prefer to fly down. It's usually quicker for me, especially since my meetings are right in Crystal City.

While I love flying....sometimes the train is just better......like between London and Paris



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.
