FlightInfoEx No Data Available, Possible error.


#1

I am using FlightInfoEx to query for more information about a flight.

First I use:

http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/SearchBirdseyeInFlight?query={=%20dest%20PHNL}%20{ident%20{ASA*%20AAY*%20AAL*%20OAE*%20AWE*%20WJA*}}%20{true%20inAir}

It returns:


faFlightID: "**ASA895-1476509178-airline-0167**",
ident: "ASA895",
prefix: "",
type: "B738",
suffix: "",
origin: "KSAN",
destination: "PHNL",
timeout: "0",

highLatitude: 33.34945,

This however shows ‘no date available’ when using:
http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/FlightInfoEx?ident=ASA895-1476509178-airline-0167

When I use:
http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/FlightInfoEx?ident=ASA895 to check match the info off the faFlightID is different as shown below.

It seems to have a ‘:0’ appended to the end. Whether I include this or not it doesn’t want to give me the information for the flight through FlightInfoEx or AirlineFlightInfo.
