Delta does not have a non-stop BCN-JFK at this time of the year.
Currently Delta's flight 90 to JFK starts in BCN, stops in MAD for about an hour and a half, when you stay in the plane while passengers unload and load in. Not a problem when you live in BCN, would hate it if I was based in MAD (makes your trip back much much longer than with another carrier). In the summer half of the year, Delta operates DL95 direct BCN-JFK and DL90 MAD-JFK.
Also half of the year Delta operates 115 BCN-ATL, which is the one I always use in the summer. Now if I need to go south I either have to stop in JFK and take an aweful local flight (I avoid local US planes as much as I can, taking an international more comfortable plane from Europe as near to my destination as I can). So I end up flying AF from CDG or KLM from AMS, both which serve much more places in the US direct from Europe than does Delta...

This is the first winter where DL is trying out a JFK-BCN-MAD-JFK routing. In previous years, the winter flight always went JFK-MAD-BCN and v.v.
Looks like the separate nonstops JFK-BCN-JFK (DL94/95) and JFK-MAD-JFK (DL126/127) return starting Sunday, March 27, 2005.

I remember reading something on the fourms that Iberia was going to start service from BCN-JFK in October or September 2005. I think the flight would be opperated with a A340-300 since the MAD-JFK flights will be flown with A340-600s.
