Back in the '90s, did DL ever run non-shuttle flights out of Terminal B?? I've got pics where the 727 aircraft parked there say DELTA instead of DELTA SHUTTLE

Just wondering.

Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Yes - Before Terminal A opened, DL Shuttle operated out of gates B-1, B-2, and B-3 - where Air Canada is now.
DL's entire operation was too big for Terminal C

Quick history of the Delta Shuttle at Boston:

Originally, the Shuttle used the ex-Pan Am gates at Terminal B (most recently the American Eagle gates). Once American Eagle bought out Business Express and moved them over to Terminal B in the late 1990s, the Delta Shuttle moved to Terminal A (A3-A6), sharing Terminal A with Continental and Cape Air.

This was only for about 2-3 years, as after that, Terminal A closed, with Continental and Cape Air moving to Terminal C and the Delta Shuttle moving to Terminal B gates B1-B3 (currently the Air Canada gates). Once the new Terminal A opened in the mid 2000s, the Delta Shuttle moved back to Terminal A, using gates A1-A3 ever since (A1 is rarely used for the Shuttle now).

Mainline subs on the Shuttle were not infrequent.

At least at the end of the days of the dedicated fleet, back in 2008, the Shuttle used 1-class MD-88s. I think Delta had 9 ships in this configuration, which was enough to cover the LGA-BOS and LGA-DCA hourly service (four ships per route each day) with one spare.

If more than one a/c was out of service or on a heavy Mx visit, then a 2-cabin ship was subbed in.
