Delta to use bigger shuttle planes with more seats

08/11/2005 | · Wall Street Journal, The

Delta Air Lines will begin retiring the Boeing 737-300 jets it uses on its Northeastern shuttle routes Nov. 1. The planes, which carry passengers on the airline's shuttle routes between New York and Boston and New York and Washington, will be replaced by McDonnell-Douglas MD-88 jets. The MD-88s can carry 134 passengers, compared with the 120-passenger 737. The increased capacity will allow Delta to shuttle 1,148 more passengers per day and bring in $240,000 to $296,000 each day in additional revenue.
