I was wondering if Delta has a dedicated group of Shuttle pilots and F/As or if they are just part of the normal MD-88 fleet, etc...Has it always been this way?

The LGA-BOS Delta shuttle operates 737 not MD-88s.

Wrong. All Shuttle flights are MD-88s now...saw a few of them at BOS tonight while waiting for my flight down to GSO.

I stand corrected. When and why did they switch the equipment. I used to fly the shuttle a couple times a year, I flew on the 727's, and then later 738's (which have to have been my favorite aircraft shuttle trips). I knew they had downgraded the equipment to the 733's but i guess they have changed the fleet again.

While I haven't flown the new MD-88s, I've talked to several people who have, they seem to really enjoy the fact that it's a quieter ride for most (due to engines in the back) and that the 2-3 configuration means 80% of the passengers get a window/aisle, while only 66.7% did on the 737.
