What lovely choices -- not.

An earlier commentator said it was breakfast both directions.

Was checking for Feb 1, 2018 and noticed bird is flat using a 757. Out of JFK. Seat map says F, Comfort and Main.

Checked a few dates in summer out of MSPand JFK. Using a domestic 757, they are not selling First, just Basic, Main and Comfort. Seat map lists Main, Comfort and "Premium Select"

Yeah DL decided to realign the classes of service on some of the shorter TATL routes. The premium cabin is being sold as premium economy, but my guess would be that service will be similar to standard domestic first, with the addition of sparkling wine. I'm guessing that the Westin bedding is gone.

What was the price difference?

Can you use miles to upgrade to "Premium Select" on MSP to KEF?

As far as I know, there isn't Premium Select on any flights to KEF right now. It's only available on the A350, which is used on a limited number of flights to Asia.

Delta sells Domestic 757 First Class seats on this route as Premium Select,
Did a quick Delta.com search to double check
Random July Dates
Main Cabin: $575
Comfort +: $753
Premium Select: $2,400 (LOL)

Not just Asia. Iíve been looking at flights to AMS this spring and seeing DTW-AMS flights on the A350 with the Premium Select seating.

Well 'premium select' is basically just the domestic F seats anyway, but that price is crazy.

Yup, the 4:14 pm departure switches to 350 starting April.
I lucked out cause i bought D1 on this route when it was still loaded as 330, best schedule change note I ever got :D

And it's basically the same price as before, at least a discounted business-class airfare. I'd pay $1500 to fly up-front to Iceland, but that's it.

Any updates on this route post-4/1 upgrade changes? I might be flying JFK-KEF next week, 757 W5H configuration (defintiely NOT D1 seats)... any idea if it's possible to upgrade to F ("Premium Select") using either miles or RUCs? This route is an oddity - really should be treated like non-D1 northern South America routes in my opinion (which truly doesn't matter).

I checked Google Flights. Unfortunately, Delta's comfort-plus is being coded as "premium" and, as a result, Google Flights can't book you a premium-economy (what Delta calls premium-select) ticket.

Economy-class airfares were around $400 and comfort-plus were around $680. When I went to Delta.com to buy a dummy comfort-plus ticket, Delta.com gave me an up-sell to premium-economy for $638.50 each way or $1,958 total.

There's no way I'd pay $1958 for it. I'd rather just buy either row 26 or row 27 of economy-class at $400-ish per seat. I could then have a poor man's lie-flat bed.

This post was back from February. The price has dropped to $1,400 most days I checked. What is really bad here is they are scheduled to be operated by the 75P during the summer which has the same exit layout of the 75S but DL choose not to convert them into 75S and instead into a small sublet of only 5 aircrafts. We wouldn't have to worry about flat-bed D1 seats not being available on all European routes if DL would have just made these into 75S but instead DL now has a shortage of 75S and we get this instead.
