Actual Times

Hello. I’m Testing some rest queries and when i use FlightInfo actual times return 0. If flight is a few days or more old it returns actual value. Is there a way to get current day actuall times?

I would recommend changing the command you are using to SearchBirdseyeInFlight. That way you can set more specific parameters to what you are wanting to look for.

Actual times will be 0 if they have not yet occurred. That part is expected behavior.

Be sure you are requesting howMany > 1 and looking not just at the first record returned (that may be for the next planned flight and not the most recent flight).
