Delta to launch Los Angeles-San Francisco shuttle

By Bill Poling
Delta plans to clone its East Coast shuttle service in California on Sept. 3, launching an hourly shuttle between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The carrier said it will offer 14 flights per day in each direction, beginning at 7 a.m.

The service will be a Delta Connection operation, flown by Compass Airlines and using Embraer E-175 regional jets. Delta said the aircraft will be configured for 12 passengers in first class, 12 in premium economy and 52 in economy, with assigned seating.

To appeal to business travelers, Delta said the flights will have dedicated check-in counters and will use departure gates closest to security.

Other features will include check-in as close as 30 minutes prior to departure; complimentary newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Financial Times; complimentary onboard snacks provided by LYFE Kitchen, a California-based lifestyle food brand; complimentary beverages; and WiFi access.
