Fly to New York return for £300 (incl) £298.00

Been trying to find decent flights to New York at a cheap price but most prices are all through the roof. Many offers in the market that claimed to be sub-£300 but ended up nearer £450 once all taxes were included, so I see that Zoom Airlines can fly you from London Gatwick to New York for £297.97 per person.

You can fly out from London Gatwick on 5, 9, 21 and 29 September and 17 and 19 October, returning from New York JFK on 13, 19, 26 and 27 October.

To book this deal with Zoom Airlines all you have to do is enter your travel dates and airports in the booking tool and be sure to select the £28 fares for each leg of the journey to get the £297.97 return price.

Good luck and it is a great city if you have never been there before.

Did you use any coupon codes? I think the one for 15% is still active - I'll link it to the above. (Or was it linked already..?!)

I'm guessing not as it's a deal posted on travelzoo.com today. http://uk.top20.travelzoo.com/:)
not as good as the £75 flights but still a pretty good price! Shame hotels there are incredibly expensive!

Use http://www.priceline.co.uk and select 'name your own price' in conjunction with a site like http://www.betterbidding.com or http://biddingfortravel.yuku.com/ for decent price on hotels in New York. Put a little homework in using this method and the discounts are unbelievable.

I'm fussy too, that's where the other websites I mentioned come into play, they help you decipher the mystery hotels that live behind priceline and hotwire.

Dont have time to look right now so may do it later or if anyone knows of any good deals on hotels , 4-5star only.

Thanks

What a damn shame Zoom are dropping the LGW-JFK route after 31st October..

Should be ok tho, the Open Skies agreement has allowed more carriers to join the fray - you can now fly direct from LHR with Air France and Delta.

If you stay in Manhattan,then of course,you're paying for location. We're going in november for a week and by staying in Queens(which is a 15 min subway ride from Manhattan),we knocked around 600 quid off. La Quinta in Queens(where we'll be staying) has great reviews.

Hope this helps:thumbsup:

Rather than pay for a hotel, you can use craigslist and sub let someone's apartment for 4 days, you can save a fortune! Every time I've done it people have been super nice and you get the bonus of a kitchen if you fancied making your own breakfast or whatever (saves a bit of cash!)

It's worth being aware of the codeshare arrangements too - like, some people think that Air France were going to start flying that route but in fact they're seats on Delta planes - and you can buy Continental tickets which are usually seats on Virgin Atlantic planes... worth knowing so that if you like to fly Virgin Atlantic, you can see if the price of a Continental ticket on same route at same time is cheaper.

Used these people for a round trip to Canada a few years back. no problem at all.

Be EXTREMELY careful tho....so many scams around....people taking deposits etc for non existant appartments,so do your research before handing any money over.

I did similar last time I went - stayed in the Quality Inn Long Island City It only opened last year and is very clean and refreshing for a tourist class hotel. Although the area is not much to look at, it's safe, and the subway station is just round the corner then 10 minutes into midtown Manhattan

EDIT: Another Choice hotel group hotel has just opened up 1 block away from the Quality Inn above Clarion Collection Long Island City This has a few extras over the Quality Inn such as exercise room and sauna and according to the few reviews so far has big rooms for NYC

I travelled with Zoom in June this year, LGW-JFK.

The airline was fantastic, no delay at all, free upgrade to extra legroom due to space on the plane (they offered it to me due to my height, I didn't approach the crew) and a fantastic friendly crew.

I have flown with countless airlines and Zoom offered by far the most pleasant flight. They are a budget airline but they definitely go over and above what most people expect!

Strongly recommended!

That's some great advice right there!

I used Priceline last year when I travelled Florida - one of the best deals was a 4* hotel in Ft Lauderdale for $78 - bargain.

It requires a fair amount of homework, but it's worth it when you see how much you've saved.

wow cheers, really tempted to book round trip to Fort Lauderdale to watch Jets @ miami on 7th september £1 each way + £303.97 in taxes hahaha:whistling:

I'm glad to hear of people having good experiences with Zoom, but thought I should warn people after my experience last year/earlier this year... I too was tempted by a great Zoom offer (free upgrade to premium economy). I booked the flights, then was contacted by Zoom some months later as they changed their schedule. An inconvenience, but these things happen I guess.

I then went on to book my hotel (Used City and Show and got the Hilton Times Square for half the published rate).

About a month before I was due to travel, I got another phone call from Zoom telling me their schedules were changing again, and I could no longer fly on the dates I wanted. I had the option of going via Bermuda (no thanks!) or changing the dates. It wasn't possible to change the hotel booking without incurring loads of extra costs, so I ended up having to cancel my Zoom flights (got a full refund) and having to rebook with another airline which of course was more expensive and only economy class.

So, the whole original point of the holiday - a cheap trip to New York - turned into an expensive fiasco. We had a great time, but I wouldn't dream of ever booking anything with Zoom again. Unless you have friends to stay with, or a fully flexible hotel deal with no penalty for cancellations...

I used them to fly to and from Canada last year and it was a nightmare, our plane was half empty to and they decided to fly to another airport about 4 hours away and fill the plane up and we only found out when checking in, I have heard from other people that the cabin can get very cold during the flight because they turn the air conditioning of to save fuel but that was ok when I traveled with them.

EDIT:-They also changed the date and time of our return flight and we did not even get an e-mail informing us, found out when checking the details online.

My cousin lives in new york ive been meaning to go over for ages i might just get it booked!

We also went in March with Zoom on the offer from last year with a free upgrade to premium economy. They changed the dates of the flights 2 weeks beforehand and we went via Bermuda on the way back. OK it was inconvenient but the premium economy was suberb and well worth it.

Eh? Don`t think so. Air Con isn`t really needed in-flight. Not seeing that its MINUS 50c outside. I think they had the heating turned up too high!

I stayed in the Doubletree Hotel in New Jersey.. fantastic and spacious rooms.

Just through the Holland Tunnel from Manhattan.. would recommend it as most NYC rooms are very cramped for the same price.

Plenty of companies turn the air con down during the flights to save money on fuel. Air you breathe when on a plane is compressed air taken in from the engines that has to be passed through the planes air conditioning system so it is ok for people to breathe.

Zoom is no more!

Taken from http://www.flyzoom.com/

Zoom Airlines sincerely regrets to advise its customers that it has ceased operations with effect from 18:00 UTC on Thursday 28 August.

All flights scheduled to depart from have been cancelled and Zoom's aircraft have been grounded.

Both Zoom Airlines Inc and Zoom Airlines Ltd, the Canadian and UK airlines, will be filing for insolvency proceedings in their home countries today.

For customers who have future travel plans involving a Zoom flight for which reservations and payment have been made, you should refer to your credit or debit card company to apply for a refund. We have set out details of other airlines who operate the same or similar routes to those flown with Zoom in the hope that this may assist you in making alternative travel plans to replace the flights that you had booked with Zoom.

If your travel arrangements have been made as part of a holiday package originating in the UK and booked through a holiday company, you may be able to make a claim under the CAA's Air Travel Organiser's Licence scheme. For information on this, please consult the CAA ATOL website at [url]www.atol.org.uk[/url].

Hugh and John Boyle, the founders of Zoom, said today: "We deeply regret the fact that we have been forced to cease all Zoom operations. It is a tragic day for our passengers and more than 600 staff.

"We are desperately sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause passengers and those who have booked flights.

"We have done everything we can to support the airline and left no stone unturned to secure a re-financing package that would have kept our aircraft flying. Even as late as yesterday we had secured a new investment package but the actions of creditors meant we could not continue flying.

"The collapse of Zoom is a result of matter beyond our control. Only last year Zoom Airlines made profit, but that turned into a loss in the last year due to the unprecedented increase in the price of aviation fuel and the economic climate. The price of oil resulted in our fuel bill jumping by nearly $50 million in one year and we could not recover that from passengers who had already booked their flights.

"We would like to thank the many thousands of passengers who chose to travel with Zoom during the last seven years and efforts of the airline's staff."

We have been advised that British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are graciously offering special fares to assist Zoom customers that have been displaced by the suspension of our services
