I disagree. Delta already flies MSP-LHR. That route has a lot more demand than MSP-DUB. All the travel bloggers were quite shocked that Aer Lingus is coming here in the first place. We'll probably see Delta fighting off Aer Lingus through fare wars. A win for us consumers!
I would agree except for the MSP-KEF route is still going to compete with Icelandair, and Delta doesn't even fly to Reykjavik from Atlanta -- that route seems to be just defending turf. However, we shall see soon enough! Delta hasn't responded to Condor and started a Germany flight, so maybe this will fall into the latter category.

I don't think DL MSP-KEF is "defending turf" -- Icelandair flew it for a decade or two before Delta picked up the route. And Icelandair often flies two flights a day from MSP. Iceland has grown significantly as a vacation destination over the last 3-5 years, and Delta serves that traffic connecting over their MSP and JFK hubs. My guess is that those two hubs are chosen since they support the widest array of connecting flows across the U.S. with the most efficient use of a narrowbody aircraft to KEF.
