Empty Primary Flight in AirlineFLightSchedule and FlightInfoEx API Methods


#1

Hello,

We are getting Empty Primary Flight in AirlineFLightSchedule and FlightInfoEx API Methods. Can you help us understand how to resolve this? We get Codeshare Flight Nbr and not the Primary Flight.

Regards

Are you certain those 3 should be considered codeshare flights?

The documentation explains that “actual_ident” is present only if it is a codeshare flight (otherwise it is blank, and “ident” is the primary identifier). The “ident” value is always present in results, but “actual_ident” is only present when appropriate.
