I just looked up the status of LH422 (FRA to BOS) today (Fri, March 25) on the LH WWW site and it's being shown as expected to arrive 45 mins early (11:43 instead of the scheduled 12:30), however its status is shown as Delayed. I'm confused. If any LH employees on the board could please explain to me what's going on I'd appreciate it very much.
Thank you in advance,

Indeed the jetstream is a little backwards at the moment ... and has been for a little while now. European inbound flights to the East coast have been generally arriving early (key word: generally!).
For example, the scheduled programme for BOS-CDG is 6h45. The flying time for a while has been 06h30, which does not leave much room for taxi time. So even if the plane leaves on time and has a 20 minute taxi, he's already going to be arriving back in Europe a little late. The average flying time for BOS-CDG is approximately 5h55-06h05.
