DL Shuttle moving from 737-800s to 737Gs 3:15 p.m. 1/23/03
On Jan. 21, a new Delta Shuttle business model was introduced to achieve and sustain profitability. The four key strategies of the model include adjusting capacity to demand, aligning the product with fares paid, continuing to reinforce DLS??? brand identity, and seizing opportunities to reclaim premium fares. As part of the new business model, beginning Friday, the 120-seat 737-300s will be transitioned into service in place of the current 737-800s. The 737-300s will be reconfigured to include the existing premium product, including leather seats and industry-leading seat width and pitch. The current 737-800s will be re-deployed to markets where they can be better used. DLS operations will continue to provide quality service geared toward the business travelers in the New York, Boston and Washington, D.C. markets.
