What type of seat & service in the front cabin for JFK-Aruba?

I'm currently booked on a nonstop flight from JFK-AUA.

I'm booked in business and the flight is flown on one of DL's 757s with recaro seats.

What type of service can I expect? Will it be first class service or BE service?

The meal is breakfast, can I expect a hot and cold option?

Thanks

This is one of the northern South America routes that can be upgraded using the rules for domestic flights. It's not marketed as BE, just business.

If only Delta.com seat maps would stop labeling the forward cabins "BusinessElite" on these flights...

Agree but in some cases, like the 16 FC 757s, it really is BE seating but domestic FC style or business class service. Be thankful it doesn't take M fares and SWUs to get there.

I've been on a 764 several times - usually around President's Week. Standard BE seats but still nice.

Any chance of a hot breakfast on the flight?

I would expect the seat on the 757 and the food service to be similar to what you get on the JFK-SJU route. It was a standard 757 F seat and I had a hot breakfast meal.
