Cancelled flights not showing as cancelled

The accuracy of cancelled flights is still really inaccurate. A google search of the flight number shows canceled for multiple flights every day but the website as well as FlightXML shows the flight is still going. There are a few hints the flight may be cancelled such as missing gate info and or presence in FindFlight.

For example, as of writing the entire FlightAware platform thinks AAL1888 on 5/16 is departing in 25 minutes. However a google search of the flight number shows cancelled from the Google API. If google knows its cancelled, how come FlightAware doesn’t?

We have identified an issue where conflicting FAA and schedule information is causing flights to show as scheduled when they should not. We are working on a fix.

Would this coincide with the flight now showing for FlightInfoStatus?

For example I am searching Airline Schedules, showing the flight, searching FlightInfo and not getting the cancellation in the results. This is causing me to have a mismatch between what I show as a valid flight vs what is actually cancelled?

Just want to be clear so I can account for that on my end.

Will the invoices be rectified accordingly? We have had very incorrect data for Apil for DLH.
