InFlightInfo timeout field


#1

In the InFlightInfo operation of the FlightXML2 API, what does the “timeout” field mean?

Specifically, I have noticed two values: “ok” for flights that are currently in-air and another that says “timedout”. What does the “timedout” value mean?


#2

It is mostly an internal status field and just indicates if it has been more than 15 minutes without a new position (or more than 55 minutes if it was last known to be sending oceanic positions).


#3

That makes sense, thanks
