FleetBoards / Extended Information

Hello,

I am working on an app that will require information such as “Origin, Destination, en route, etc” I see you guys have an a wonderful API. My question is… on the FleetBoards function, if you add the extended information variable to true ( having the correct subscription ) will it return information such as “gates” for arrival and departure airports for the specific airline ? I have the free version, but I am thinking to upgrade, but I want to know what kind of information does the “extended information” bring? I am looking for gate information as well as lat and lon for the “destination & departure” airports.

Yes, this data is most commonly present for large airlines and airports. Each individual flight returned in FleetBoards will use the structure defined in FlightInfoStatus. Gate, Terminal and block times are all considered to be extended information.
