Delta’s Nonstop New York To Iceland – Award Availability Outlook

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

Delta Airlines is reintroducing their seasonal nonstopflight to Iceland from New York’s JFK airport. The nonstop flight will be operated by a 757-200 and starts on June 3, 2013. The flight will be equipped with 15 Business Elite seats similar to the ones in this review, as well as economy comfort seating.

It’s great they are operating the flight with Business Elite seats. That would be a long way to go in regular domestic First Class seating. image

Award Pricing

Standard low level award pricing is as follows:

  • Business Class – 100,000 miles

image

  • Coach Class – 60,000 miles

Business Class Availability

Business Class award availability in June appears to show quite a few days with low level Business Class availability.

image

Business Class award availability in July appears to show even more days with low level Business Class availability.

image

Business Class award availability in August also has good availability in low level Business Class availability.

image

Coach Class Availability

Coach Class award availability in June isn’t great. There are no days that show low level Coach Class availability but a bunch with high level availability.

image

Coach Class award availability in July isn’t much better. There is one day with low level Coach Class availability.

image

But Coach Class award availability in August is really good. There are multiple days with low level Coach Class availability.

image

The low award ticket in Coach Class will cost you only 60,000 round trip. If you book this award, don’t forget to add the free one-way to your award. And stop-overs and open jaws are allowed.

Bottom Line

It’s great to see Delta adding the seasonal service back to Iceland. The 100,000 SkyMiles Business Class award at the low level is a lot of miles for such a short distance, but if you want to go to Iceland on points and miles, this is an option.

    The won’t fly to Lisbon but they’ll go to Iceland?

    I checked these out yesterday and was happy to see not only good award availability but also some REALLY cheap RT coach tix. I booked June 7-11 for $617 all in. Unfortunately I won’t be riding up front without an op-up, but at least I get economy comfort on a relatively short international flight.

    If you’ve never been to Iceland, go!

    These flights are non-stop, not direct. There is a difference.

    “That would be a long way to go in regular domestic First Class seating.”

    – no, actually it wouldn’t. Only about as long as a transcend, to be exact. -

    oops, automated spell-correction… Transcon, that is. ;-)
