Also of note is that this will give B6 something of a competitive advantage on LGA-BOS - quicker access to Manhattan, and a much quicker taxi to the gate if landing on 22. I tend to assume this competitive advantage is oversold, since Delta seems to be willingly giving it up. Certainly, some shuttl...
