FlightXML 3: Gate Information


#1

The documentation says there should be gate_orig and gate_dest fields in FlightInfoStatus, but I’m not seeing them. For example, UAL590—which has already landed and shows proper gate info at flightaware.com/live/flight/UAL590—doesn’t return these fields when I query:


https://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML3/FlightInfoStatus?include_ex_data=false&ident=UAL590-1502256382-airline-0498

How can I get gate information in v3?


#2

The gate information is part of the include_ex_data field. So to get gate departure time, etc you need to set that flag to true and be at a silver plan or higher. I listed the information included in the include_ex_data here: post209575.html?hilit=include_ex_data#p209575

Ah that makes sense, thanks!
