Flight Info Status Not Updating Correctly

We are having some issues with the Flight Info Status endpoint, http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML3/FlightInfoStatus. We are seeing scenarios where a flight is delayed from taking off, then once it does take off the “progress_percent” field does not update until after the flight has landed at its destination.

We are using this info to track flights that are in progress and have an estimated arrival delay, but since the flights never end up showing in progress we are missing some records. Can you please provide a reason why this might be happening and if it can be fixed? The most recent occurrence of this issue was 5/19 with faFlightID: AAL2495-1589690730-airline-0175
