EK Flight Tracking BHX to DXB

why can’t I see the flight tracking from bhx to dxb after the Black Sea?

From the FAQ:

“Not all worldwide data sources (e.g., European data, datalink ARINC/SITA ACARS, etc) are freely available on FlightAware.com due to government regulations or commercial arrangements. You can contact us if you have a commercial need for worldwide data.”

Interestingly I was onboard EK17 this morning wondering if I could send data direct using my laptop / cellphone (which are now allowed on Emirates flights above 20000ft) and my RTL dongle feeding RTL1090 to Planeplotter and FlightAware. It would have given the actual track all the way. I decided it might be frowned upon.

thank you both for your replies, interestingly this problem has only occurred recently so I wondered if access had been stopped by governments in this area.
