Flightaware routes


Hello, I was wondering when I am looking at a flight for example THY79K from LTBA-KSFO the only routing is displayed within the American airspace. However, on the return leg the whole leg is being display, is there any reason for this?


They get route data from the American FAA.
When a flight departs the US, the FAA has the whole flight plan / route.
But if a flight departs from Turkey, the US only gets the part of the flight plan in their airspace.

Not sure from which other countries provide flight plan data to FlightAware, but Turkey does not seem to be one of them.


Roger, thank you very much. I wonder if there is a list regarding list of countries supplying data to flightaware
