The shuttle will be operated by American Eagle, an American Airlines subsidiary, using 37-seat Brazilian-made Embraer regional jets.

The shuttle is to begin Jan. 31 and will offer a flight every other hour from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

American Airlines spokesmen said an unrestricted, one-way ticket purchased at time of departure would cost $256.75 and a pre-purchased round-trip fare involving restrictions would cost $186

American Eagle already operates eight regular daily flights to Boston from John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Although the Federal Aviation Administration used a lottery last week to cut 140 flights from the more than 1,200 flights a day at LaGuardia, it is still the nation's most congested airport and led the nation in flight delays in October i

LaGuardia's increasingly jammed runways are the result of congressional legislation known as Air-21, which permits regional jet flights by aircraft with no more than 70 seats to underserved airports in an attempt to promote more competition among airlines and thus lower fares.
