A350 and CS100 ICAO designations


The ICAO designation for the A350-900 is A359. They’re showing up on FA as 359. Is this a data or display issue?

The CS100 is doing proving flights. I’ve picked up one on my pi (https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BBA505/history/20151201/1553Z)

The reported it as a BCS1 as an ICAO type. The “long type” showed up in my Active Display as a “Bombardier BD500 Series CS100”


359 is a data issue, I’ve added a translation so new flights in the next couple days will be correct.

BCS1 was a display issue, fixed now.
