Took me about an hour to collect bags, get a taxi, and drive to JFK in rush hour the other day, though I wouldn't want to bet my overseas flight to KEF on that. Return was through MSP...I may never go through NY again.

While the wording requires one PNR, never have gotten pushback getting a voucher when on 2. They just wanted both PNR to result in DL to/from DL/AF/KL/VS connection.

Thanks for the ITA booking help everyone. I learned about the NYC transfers a couple of weeks ago. The layovers I was looking at was like 4~5 hours, so I figured that would be safe even considering customs at JFK.

I ended up booking WOW to fly non-stop STL-KEF and netting 1.5 days of less travel. Hopefully int eh future I'll take advantage of the booking and transfer on some fair match to continental Europe.

There is no longer a Rule 150. However, there is a Rule 5 and it makes clear that DL no longer arranges or pays for this service. If you do choose a LGA-JFK connection, make sure to allow a lot of time to account for the vagaries of baggage service and traffic at LGA.

RULE 5: INTER-AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION When a metropolitan area is served by more than one airport and the passenger requires connecting service with arrival at one airport and departure from another airport, transportation between those airports must be arranged by and at the expense of the passenger. Baggage must be claimed and rechecked by the passenger.

Incorrect. Where did you get your rule 5 from? You left out key bits to this discussion:
https://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/legal/contract-of-carriage-igr.html#interairport

"RULE 5: INTER-AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION

Except as otherwise specified below, Delta does not operate or provide ground transfer service between airports or between airports and city centers. When a metropolitan area is served by more than one airport and the passenger requires connecting service with arrival at one airport and departure from another airport, transportation between those airports must be arranged by and at the expense of the passenger. Any such service is performed by independent operators who are not and shall not be deemed to be agents or servants of Delta. Although Delta may assist you in making arrangements for such ground transfer service, you agree that Delta is not liable for any act or omission of any such independent operator. If we issue you a voucher to cover the cost of services provided by any such independent contractor and you decide not to use the services, the voucher for such services will have not refund value.

Except for passengers traveling on award tickets or free tickets, Delta will provide ground transfer services at no additional charge to Delta or Delta Connection passengers making connections between LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or Newark International Airport (EWR) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to or from Delta transatlantic flights, if the passenger's connecting flight is scheduled to depart the same calendar day of the scheduled arrival of the passenger's flight at LGA/EWR/JFK airports. Both the arriving and departing flights to/from JFK/LGA/EWR must be on the same ticket.

When transferring between airports, baggage must be claimed and rechecked by the passenger."

I cut & pasted from the COC as they appear from the DL website at the time I posted the language. DL lists its COC version as updated on July 11, 2018, and the additional language you quote no longer appears in Rule 5. Here is a link to the COC from the DL website (or you may look it up yourself on delta.com.

I am absolutely correct.

Often, you just linked to the domestic COC. As the flight goes on to KEV, it is the international COC which applies despite the NYC connection.

You are absolutely incorrect, still. That is the domestic contract of carriage, for which of course this rule would not have the provision of ground transport across the NYC airports.

I already posted the correct link to the international contract of carriage. Even in your link above, you can see "dom" signifying domestic in the url. Mic drop.

According to Lyft's website, that only applies to Terminal B. Delta uses C and D.
