I just did BCN-JFK last month in D1 and the service was excellent. Wonderful JFK crew.

The first meal was so much food I was stuffed and skipped the pre-arrival (which I almost never do). The mid-flight cookies are delish and despite me sleeping through it, they brought me two when I requested one and a glass of milk instead of pre-arrival.

Mid-Flight snacks are an expanded snack basket - random salty snacks, chocolates, some fruit, etc. Nothing too substantial.

If you plan to sleep I doubt you will be hungry on the flight. If you are, let the FAs know and as long as you are nice to them, I am sure they will try their best to accomodate you

The Skybreak basket: varies from apples/banana's, shortbread cookies, chocolates, chips, sandwiches and so on

They are actually Magnum bars, and yes, they are not full size.

You might want to check out the Delta One sale happening right now from Madrid.

It allows travel to most major US cities for ~$1650+ roundtrip

There must be specific dates for that sale. I couldn't get that price.

Sadly, next month when I'm flying this route it's still scheduled to be 767s, and not 330s, which looks to start in March.

But thanks btonkid for the good review of the D1 service!

Note that the fare is only good on roundtrips with a MAD origin (fares from around 1450 EUR from 6/23 - 8/28 with Sat night stay required). You can't get it if you are originating in the US. D1 fares from JFK are as low as $2400 roundtrip in August with mid-week departures and Saturday night stay. That's about the best you will find from US on DL.

You know, I did AMS-ATL in the 330 and surprisingly got better sleep on the 767. Not sure if it was the angle or what.

But, the 767s have the massage function (albeit most are barely working at this point) and your knee can stick out of the confines of the seat without it feeling weird (to me) given the lack of angle.

But, I was shocked at how good the service from this JFK crew was. Got their names and sent in a big compliment. One of the best crews I've ever had.

Do most people think the A330 is better than the 767? I'll get to try both. Reverse herringbone seats face backwards or not???

Yes they do. But I really enjoy row 1 on the 767 - the rest of the seats for taller people can feel "coffin" like

None of the Delta One seats face backwards - all forward on every plane type Delta flies

I definitely prefer the A330, although, despite some issues with shoulder width on the 767s in bed mode, I don't hate that aircraft either.

Reverse herringbone seats face forward. The reverse means that they you face away from the aisle, unlike herringbone seats in which you face towards the aisle.

One is "reverse herringbone" and the other just "herringbone" only because one style was introduced before the other.

My preference is to go through JFK both ways. I'll know in a week or two what the travel agent can do.
Just be aware that immigration at JFK can be a mess, depending what time you arrive and where the flight ahead of you came from.

Thanks. I have a long layover (4h 45m) so it should be ok. Hope to have enough time to visit the lounge. I think we'll be fine.
