Get all flights of the previous day

Hi guys, I am looking at getting every day all the commercial flights of the previous day.
I know there is an estimation of 100k flights a day, so it would be in theory a huge request. Which part of the API you would guys recommend using for that?

Theoretically this could be done by polling the FleetArrived endpoint for all known commercial carriers over a day.

However, you may want to examine the Firehose product offering instead instead. It is generally much better suited for very high data volume on a global scale.
