Is there a good reason why the API FlightXML2.AirlineFlightSchedules cannot be used with dates more than 10-14 days in the past?

It would be extremely helpful to have the range extended to even just one month in the past.

Thank you!

Most data offered through FlightXML should generally be expected to be to only be available for about 2 weeks in the past, not just AirlineFlightSchedules.

Although the AirlineFlightSchedules function physically allows you to request startDates as far as 3 months in the past, in practice the database has diminishing accuracy in the past because it is using only the latest timesheets as published by the airlines, and those tend to only include data for the current month going forward.

Ah, okay, that makes sense. Thank you!
