Doesn't this seem to overlap Delta Shuttles? Is this is beginning of the end or at least a change for DS?

Delta Shuttle stopped DCA - BOS service about two months ago. However, it is interesting that CMR now claims some territory back from ACA replacing the Dork with a CRJ.

ACA goes into CVG and takes small routes with the Dork.

CMR goes to BOS and takes the old shuttle cherry from ACA. I wonder if CMR is also going to claim the popular BOS-RDU flights which are always full on the Dork.
