When I taxied in to the YYC apron tonight as WJ 521 (9:05 pm local), I believe it was a Jazz pilot that asked on frequency if the rumour was true about Zoom. The controller responded that he hadn't heard anything.

When I taxied out as WJ 647, I saw that a CYYC airport authority pickup was parked just in front of the ground handler's stair-truck by the forward entrance door. More importantly was the front end loader parked 5 feet in front of the #1 engine.

Carson (and all my former colleagues) if you read this I hope all works out well (!)

Interesting that they're the first one to go in that market. No exposure to business traveller market, mostly economy/leisure family travellers between the UK (most rocky european economy at the moment) and Canada. Also a more recent startup so may not have the sway of the big boys when it comes to fuel hedging. Fairly saturated market too.

News this morning saying that they YYC airport Approx. $400k, the fuel company refused to fill the a/c because they were owed to much $$ and the a/c was seized by the leasing company. Pax to that they could go on Saturday's flight but no company officals responded to request for an interview. Sad to say but my guess is gone.

One of the Zoom Captain's was a regular jumpseater from YVR-YEG.... great guy, loved the job, it's much harder to read when you can put faces (and their families) to the news.

Catch ya on the flip side.

Hey JC,

I feel terrible for you guys. It was the one airline I worked for where I felt respected and appreciated. Best of luck with everything. If this is the JC I think it is, we flew together and had great times....PM me if you like (I left for AC couple yrs ago)

Really sucks!

So what happens to the machine now? Does it just sit on the ramp until the leasing company signs it to a new leaser (right word??).

I love the comments behind this picture of 763 C-GZNC in yyz.

"Parked on the FedEx ramp with a snow-plough behind it to stop it from going antwhere."

They should have just put the denver boot on the nose gear instead :?:

Asking a pilot about what he thinks of Transport Canada, is like asking a fire hydrant what does he think about dogs.

I'm pretty sure I saw a Zoom aircraft parked on the ramp in Miami a few days ago as I was driving by.

Zoom Airlines Pre-Bankruptcy Money Transfers Probed by Trustee
By Joe Schneider

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Zoom Airlines, the closely held Canadian carrier that declared bankruptcy in August, is being probed because of transactions valued at more than C$27 million ($25 million) during the past three years, court records show.

Doyle Salewski Inc., the trustee overseeing the bankruptcy, is ``reviewing these transactions to determine if they were a breach of the fiduciary responsibilities of the directors,'' Paul Salewski, the trustee's vice president, said yesterday in a report to Ontario Superior Court of Justice. ``These reviews are at a preliminary stage.''

Zoom redeemed C$6.1 million of preferred shares from co- founder Hugh Boyle, forgave a C$6 million debt to Go Travel Direct, a Quebec-based travel agency Boyle had set up, and acquired C$14.8 million of preferred shares in Go Travel, according to the report.

Doyle Salewski wrote Go Travel and Boyle demanding repayment of the money, Salewski said in the report.

Boyle said today he was unaware of the report and hadn't received the demand letter from the trustee. He said he would comment after he had read the documents.

Zoom, based in Ottawa and Glasgow, Scotland, ceased operations Aug. 28, blaming high fuel costs and an inability to obtain new financing.

The flight cancellations came without warning and left hundreds of passengers stranded on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean with little time to make alternate plans.

The airline owes about C$200,000 in unpaid wages to its employees, according to the trustee's report. Zoom had 710 employees in Canada and the U.K.

The case is In the matter of the Bankruptcy of Zoom Airlines Inc., CV-08-7752, Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Toronto)..

The 757 C-FTSN in Glasgow disappeared 2 weeks ago. Not sure about the others.

Its still crapy for all the people affected. Good luck to everyone still looking.

KFC was probably owed the most money for that plane, guess now it will go to Flair or the KFC leasing company.
