I’m not exactly sure what category this might fit into, so please move it as necessary.
It seems that as of late the beginning of routes, at least for U.S. departures, appear to be incorrect. Many now begin with VORs or intersections, a radial or course bearing, and some sort of distance marker. An example would be something like FJC111034. In other cases, it seems a departure for a transatlantic flight (I’ve been looking at DAL404 from KJFK to LFPG specifically) sometimes begins with a waypoint far from the departure field (ex. NICSO). In both cases, there is no SID (Standard Instrument Departure procedure) as there should be. I am wondering why this might appear this way and why this appears to be a recent issue. I am hoping for a fix or some other way to figure out how the route might actually begin. Thanks for your help.
I also emailed support in hopes of getting an answer.
