FlightXML3/FlightInfoStatus for IBE6403 not returning accurate data (incompleted)

Hi,

We are using your API to follow flights, in this case IBE6403, and we noticed we got incomplete information.

Requesting https://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML3/FlightInfoStatus?ident=IBE6403&howMany=15&include_ex_data=false as now, I obtain this result:

As you can see, we have information for 23th May, of two flights: one from MAD (Madrid) to TER ( Terceira Island /Praia da Vitoria /Angra area) and other from TER to MEX (Mexico City).
Normally the flight is from MAD directly to MEX. But in this case the flight was diverted, and we have no indication that the flight was diverted! Flags for diverted field are false.

If we consult your site, we see 3 flights for IBE6403 for that day, the first one is marked as diverted:

Can you improve the reliability of the information reported?
Thanks.


#2

No support on this? I guess I should receive a flag diverted: true in this case, or not?


#3

A diverted status flight should appear in FlightXML 3 FlightInfoStatus similar to how it does on the flight page. I’ve opened a bug to look into this case.


#4

Ok, I’ll wait for some feedback regarding this bug.

Thanks.

Hi,

Any news on this issue?
Thanks

Hello,

This is still in progress. Once complete you can anticipate both the actually flow and diverted flight will both appear similar to FlightInfo from FlightXML 2.
