Amazingly enough, the last time I flew DL across the Atlantic, in 2007 (JFK-BCN/ATH-JFK), there were menus in Y.
Actually, the whole service was pretty nice, let down by the ageing 763s and awful terminals at JFK. Pretty good food and service. There was even an amenity kit.
As mentioned before, AF also offers menus in Y on intercontinental flights. I've also found AF's food quite good for Y, though now with ten-abreast seating in the 777 I might avoid it (or at least try to stick to Airbuses).
BA gave menus once, but cut them sometime in the 2000s. Unfortunately the Y product has been cheapened, though the basics are all still there including decent food.

I flew JFK-BOM on DL in Feb. 2008 and there was a menu card in economy.
But, strange or odd you may call, I flew ATL-BOM a year later in Feb. 2009 on their then new 777-LR and there was no menu card in economy.

NW still gave them out in 2007 on SEA-NRT-SEA. At the time, they gave them out on TPAC flights but not TATL flights. Not sure if DL has kept them or not. I would assume it makes more sense for Asian destinations given the different languages and scripts used for each country. NW's menus were printed in English, Japanese, Chinese, and I believe Korean.

I think quite a few non-US airlines do this. Off the top of my head, on some recent long haul flights that I took, almost all (if not all) flights had these. Some that come to mind are:
There are others that I can't think of at the moment. Also, I flew DL ATL-PRG last year and I think they may have had menus as well. Speaking of DL, I don't fly them very often any more my on two domestic flights I took last year, both had very nice menus with pictures. Of course, most of the food was for purchase, but still, the menus were very nicely made. US had them too on a recent domestic flight I took.
