What Caribbean islands does Delta fly to non-stop from Newark, NJ

I have almost 200,000 Delta Airlines miles to use up before 12/31/08.
I want to try to squeeze out 3 trips to the Caribbean in 2007 & 2008. I have easy access to Newark, NJ and a bit more inconvenient is LaGuardia but JFK can sometimes take 2 hours from my home in NJ.
I want non-stop flights and though I know one destination is the Barbados there must be several more. Since most destinations are 3-5 hours I prefer not using miles up by going Bus. or First Class. Delta was not too helpful but thr Fodorit's general "really" know. Help, please.

FF miles go FAST on Delta so I would suggest calling Delta and see what destinations they have available for FF ticket(s). Often you have to book a year in advance, so knowing what islands they fly to, won't be as much help as knowing what islands are available.

You also might check the www.delta.com site for more suggestions.

Hope this helps at least a little bit.

They definitely fly nonstop to Montego Bay out of the NYC area, but I'm not sure which airport. You can use your Delta miles on Continental, too, and I imagine that they fly several places out of their Newark hub.

San Juan and St Thomas for sure.

I used my miles for the trips as well. Try to book early and get sky saver, it is 30,000 miles per r/t ticket. That saves you about $300 per person for airfare.

My wife and I had used San Juan as a hub to hop over to other islands such as Vieques, Culebra, and this time Tortola.

Its worth the extra money and time.
