Last month I began utilizing the FA API to download flight history data via a custom application I wrote. Recently I reviewed our Recent Activity and found some anomalies.
From January 24 to February 6th I am billed for between 500 and 800 Class 2 counts per day (SearchBirdseyeInFlight), but on February 7th over 15 minutes I am shown as making ~5300 such calls. Looking at the tools I am using to make the Class 2 calls I cannot account for this magnitude of calls or how it would have differed from the previous weeks. I also see no record of this data getting to my systems - ie the data was not saved.
My tools are setup to make one MetarEx call after each a SearchBirdseyeInFlight call but I see that there are anywhere from one to nine counts listed associated with the MetarEx calls.
Can I trust the counts listed under Recent Activity?
