I'm not familiar with Delta.
I'm not located on the east coast (I live in Arizona) and it cost 125,000 miles for a first class reward ticket to FRA. The route was on US Airways from PHX-IAH and then on Lufthansa IAH-FRA. Business class on Star Alliance partners is 100,000.
If you fly US Airways metal you can find cheaper rewards via the credit card and off peak awards (such as 55K business to Europe R/T in certain winter months).
Like any other program if you are flexible you can find some rewards, if not YMMV.
