    It’s funny because I would have expected this more on the BOS-LGA route vs LGA-DCA, especially given B6’s recent announcement. I’m frankly surprised AA hasn’t gone every-other hour on BOS-LGA, as the loads are 50% or less on most flights but Mon AM, Fri PM and holiday weeks. AA’s BOS-DCA is a big money maker, and I’d be shocked to ever see that have service cuts, though.

    @Dave, Acela is more competitive on the LGA-DCA route. From downtown to downtown, it is usually a tie unless you are on the 6am or 7am shuttles. I think that is why the reduction here and not to BOS.

    From an airline nerd perspective, I’ve always been partial to AA’s shuttle service, because they are scheduled exactly on the hour, as opposed to the :59 that you see with DL. Just something very clean about seeing 14-16 flights a day every hour, exactly on the hour!
