Alert encoding



When I try real push notifications, french accents are broken. I receive text like “ADR1218 arrivé à GVA de FRA”.

I have the same issue with the FlightXML Push Notification Testing Interface (https://fr.flightaware.com/commercial/flightxml/send.rvt). For the summary “Arrivé à GVA” I receive “Arrivé à GVA”.

The FlightXML request encoding is set as UTF-8 (“content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8”). But I don’t know if it’s right or if text was broken previously.



We’re having a look. It looks like there’s a character set conversion error that’s occurring before the alert is sent.


Thank you for your feedback, will it be fixed soon?


Yesterday all alert I recieved had a brocken encoding.

Lufthansa #2386 est arrivé à Int’l de Genève (GVA) à 16:19 CET de Int’l Franz-Josef-Strauss de Munich (MUC) après 0:52 en route Destination (Int’l de Genève / GVA): Terminal 1

What can I do?



This bug has not yet been resolved. It’s currently prioritized for development, but I’m unable to provide an estimated time of fix yet.
