I was looking to migrate FIDS project from another data provider to FlightAware using FlightXML.
Basically I need Arrival and Departure screens with flights 6 hours before to 6 hours after the current time, for example:
Departures Airline Flight Destination Status Time Delta Air Lines 4828 Detroit Delayed 17 minutes 6:15 PM American Airlines 3138 Chicago On-time 8:23 PM Arrivals Airline Flight From Status Time United Airlines 5599 Chicago Arrived 20 minutes late 5:59 PM American Airlines 3138 Chicago 31 minutes late 8:08 PM
I have been accessing the FlightXML API fine, and looking at the following:
But these do not seem to have Airline name information or Status information.
I can extrapolate the Flight Ident and run through a list of Codeshares to display the proper Airline for most cases, but codeshares can get crazy sometimes.
I have kind of looked through a lot of the other Operations available for FlightXML, and I am not really finding what I am looking for.
Am I missing something?
If anyone has information that I overlooked, please let me know?
Thank you for your time.
