Flight wise all most certainly London-New York rather than just specifically JFK-LHR !
Operators LHR-JFK BA (upto 6 daily) VS ( several daily) AA (several daily)
UA (Several daily) AI (daily) KU (daily)
Plus BA LHR-EWR (2 daily) plus either US or AA I think plus VS (daily)
Plus LGW-Ewr CO upto 4 daily plus VS (CO/VS code share on this route !)
Further search as this topic is cyclic about every 10 days on the forum anyway !

The busiest trans-Atlantic routes from the US, not in terms of O&D, but in terms of passengers carried for the period of Mar01 through Feb02, are:

1) NYC-LHR
2) LAX-LHR
3) ORD-LHR
4) NYC-CDG

The complete list is on this site, but it is running very slow right now:

Among the busiest trans-Atlantic routes are:
LAX-CDG, SFO/BOS/IAD-LHR, ORD/IAD/JFK-FRA, MIA-MAD/LHR, MCO-LGW, DTW-AMS

Without even researching, I will stick my neck on the chopping block and say LHR - JFK is the busiest transatlantic route. I cannot see any other route coming even close to that one. Additionally, NYC (JFK, EWR) - LONDON (LHR, LGW) I think is the busiest metro area combination.

BA operates LHR-JFK seven times daily and LHR-EWR twice daily (+ a five times weekly flight). Better frequency than a lot of its S/H routes!

At present I don't think any carriers operate LGW-JFK and only CO operates LGW-EWR (VS having switched its service to LHR).
