Delta Air Lines hopes to re-create the success of its branded Delta Shuttle service in the Northeast when it begins offering 11 daily flights from New York LaGuardia to Chicago O'Hare next month. As part of the rebranding, Delta will move its LaGuardia flights from Midway to O'Hare and operate Embraer 175 aircraft configured with 64 seats in economy class and 12 in first class. Shuttle passengers will get complimentary newspapers, access to priority security lanes and other perks. American Airlines and United Airlines also offer frequent service on the LaGuardia-O'Hare route, which is popular with high-revenue business travelers.
