Could someone help me to understand my error…

I am trying to use FlightXML2 InboundFlightInfo for today’s Emirates flight faFlightID UAE90-1516947946-airline-0054:2 to get the info about the corresponding inbound flight.

but I receive the following error : INVALID: invalid {faFlightID}

in your URL, Instead of ident=UAE90, it should be faFlightID=UAE90. So it should look like this https://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/InboundFlightInfo?faFlightID=UAE90-1516947946-airline-0054
