Sorry I did a search and didn't see anything, but has Delta extended JFK-KEF service again? I have a friend who just booked on this flight at the end of December returning early January. The last mention I see of it on Delta's web site was it going to 7 months a year starting in February.

Delta has changed JFK-KEF from a seasonal route to a whole year route starting W16.

KEF is the new "now" tourist destination. Lots of traffic, hence the build up of Icelandic's fleet.

While that is true, a large part of Icelandair's buildup is because they are building a large connecting hub.

Switching KEF to year round from JFK is no doubt partially an attempt to maintain competitiveness with FI and WOW air (it is a matter of when, not if, they start to serve the NYC area).

I wish DL would upgrade from a 757 to a 767. At least during the peak summer months.

Iceland is a hot destination right now. Iceland is a booming connection hub but tourism is also booming. delta is focusing on the o&d part
