Quoting VS747SPUR (Thread starter): Was just wondering how the recently started Zoom JFK - LGW route is performing ? Also, I have seen the flight has very frequently been heavily delayed (4hrs + ), does anyone know the reason for this ?
All though I don't know how the route is going for Zoom, I could hazard a guess that the reason for the frequent delays at JFK is weather, or 9 planes all scheduled to land at the same time.

Quoting Caaardiff (Reply 2): I had heard that the LGW-BDA-JFK days were being delayed due to ETOPS problems and different routings
Thats one of the main reasons, our Premier announced a few days ago that ETOPS approval was given. Then ZOOM announced that they had not received it yet. They then said that they should have it soon, and will shorten the flight time from LGW - BDA by 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Mind you there have been some bad stories in the local press about their delays.
