faFlightID Format



When the faFlightID field ends with a colon and a number, e.g. EIN239-1462858079-airline-0303:2, does the colon and the number signify anything?

I’ve noticed multiple flights with the same value for this field except the number after the colon; is it safe to assume anything, such as them being the same flight? E.g. would it be safe to assume the flight with the above is the same flight as one with faFlightID EIN239-1462858079-airline-0303:0?

Thanks in advance,



That is just an artifact of our internal flight aliases. Just strip anything following a colon and treat them as identical.

What API did you use that returned such faFlightID’s?


Great, thanks.

FlightInfoEx I believe (possibly SearchBirdseyeInFlight)
