Aircraft Registration Number on FlightAware XML?!


#1

Dear Team,
Will AirelineFlightInfo function return the aircraft registration number by entering the flight number not faFlightID?

I guess this is an open discussion by other developers that is not closed yet, check post “http://discussions.flightaware.com/general/tail-number-and-flight-number-t12424.html

I guess we all believe that a cross link between the flight number/date and the corresponding aircraft reg number is possible. This is already available through antonakis.co.uk/acars.php?page=request , so why FlightAware can’t avail the same info?

Thanks
Osama

It is not possible, because a single flight number will be operated by different aircraft over different days (and perhaps different aircraft on the same day). The faFlightID must be specified (or flight number and specific departure time) in order to specify which instance of the flight you are interested in.
