    ATLANTA, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Shuttle today announced it will

 Delta Shuttle will provide round-trip air transportation on Delta Air Lines
 (NYSE:   DAL) and Delta Shuttle totaling $9,000 during the 2000-2001 concert

 more amazing performances for the Boston community."

     As one of New England's largest and most successful community-based

 outstanding musicianship, creative programming, and groundbreaking community
 outreach.  Under the energetic leadership of Music Director Reuben M.
 Reynolds, III, the BGMC sings a wide spectrum of classical and popular music
 with excellence and provides a positive and affirming image of the gay and
 lesbian community.
     Delta Shuttle offers nonstop, hourly departures between New York LaGuardia

 (pending ATC and weather) or award the passenger a free Delta Shuttle ticket.
 Delta Shuttle also offers customers enhanced comfort and reliability with a
 brand new fleet of 16 Boeing 737-800 jets.  Featuring all-leather seats with
 an industry-leading 36 inches of legroom and six inches of recline, the jets
 are 90 percent quieter than the Delta Shuttle's former fleet of aircraft and
 offer 40 percent more overhead bin space.
