I've noticed some recent posts concerning Delta's plans for its shuttle fleet. This release on the PR Newswire ends the speculation: "Delta Shuttle will introduce a fleet of 16 new, quiet Boeing 737-800 Stage III aircraft... in July 2000. The aircraft will be equipped with new, ergonomically advanced seats that feature four-way adjustable headrests, more personal space on-board, battery-saving Empower(TM) system for laptop computers, new easy-access telephones, and seatback hooks for hanging jackets. The cabin also will provide each passenger with 30 percent more overhead bin space. The noise footprint at 70 decibels is one-twelfth of the Delta Shuttle's current B-727-200. The new aircraft also will burn 35 to 40 percent less fuel."
