FlightXML3 FlightInfoStatus does not recognise IATA LH8414


#1

Hello,

I tried querying with postman for flight LH8414 (IATA code) but got the following response:
{
“error”: “NO_DATA No flights found for LH8414”
}

The API recognises the ICAO code though DLH8414 and the live online tracking works for the ICAO code only.

Is there a specific reason that this flight is not recognised through the IATA code or is that a bug?

Thanks!

Be aware that if you enable “position only flights” on your account, that disables the IATA-to-ICAO conversions that can be automatically done by us.

Thank you @bovineone, that was the problem :slight_smile:
