I am looking to get something similar to airport departure/arrival boards. From other APIs you’d simply pass in the airport code and whether you wanted departures or arrivals and it’d give you a list which resembles an airport departure board - eg. for departures it’d show flights which have just departed as well as ones which are still scheduled.
For arrivals, it would show flights which have just arrived, ones which are still on-route and also ones which are still scheduled at the origin airport.
My question is, how can I achieve this with FlightAware? There must be a simple way of doing this - if I want arriving flights into an airport I assume there’s something more simple than having to make separate requests for Arrived, EnRoute and Scheduled.
Furthermore, how is it possible to work out whether a flight is currently on-time or is being delayed from a ScheduledFlightStruct? I can see an “estimatedarrivaltime” but no scheduled arrival time, so there’s nothing to compare it to. Likewise, there’s a “filed_departuretime” but no estimated departure time.
Thanks for your help. I’d really like to use the FlightXML API.
