Alert for Flight Delay Status


As per the documentation I see there are only five options available for SetAlert method (e_filed e_departure e_arrival e_diverted e_cancelled).
Is there any way I can set alert for flight delayed status?

There isn’t any specific event that you have to set. However, if you set the alert for e_filed, you should get notifications about changes as well.
However, you will only get these changes for significant delay of at least half an hour. Would you require delays that are less than that?
The other thing to keep in mind is that these changes alert you about changes in runway times. Would you need times for leaving the gates?

Here is an example of the text contents of a change notification:

"Lufthansa #490 flight information has changed
Departure Time is now Wed 06-Apr-2016 02:30PM CEST

Flight Status: Departure delayed about 3 hours 30 minutes

Frankfurt Int’l (EDDF/FRA)
Wed 06-Apr-2016 02:30PM CEST
Gate Z69"


Thank you for the information.
I want to know in case of delay, which **eventcode ** will I get.

Can you please send me the exact alert response for delay?

Thank you.

The eventcode will be “change” in such notifications, and are received based upon subscribing for the the “e_departure” or “e_arrival” events.
