Meals in 1st vs. miles flown criteria??

Question I have is I fly regularly from MSP-DCA (932 miles) and
its a 1pm departure and always have had a lite lunch (2 choices).

Recently flew from Atlanta to Grand Cayman (GCM) in 1st; Departure 10:15am
and return from GCM to ATL is 1:20pm and nothing is offered but peanuts and pretzels: (1036 miles).
I have flown this over the past several years and nothing else has been offered.

Can someone provide the link for the DL meal hrs and miles required etc.

Concluding comment: Flew ATL-SAN last Saturday 9:25 pm flight=4.5 hrs and same as the Grand Cayman flights...
of course we know DL doesn't provide anything after 8pm.

There are also some flights that are apparently exceptions...I too did not get meals in first class to the Caribbean (LGA-NAS). I have no idea why even though the flight was eligible.

And flights like LGA/EWR/JFK-ATL get meals even though its 761 miles for competitive reasons.
