Missing cargo flights by API

I am searching flights in between origin and destination.
Right now I can use AirlineFlightScheduled API method to get the flights but these are only passenger flights, why cannot get the cargo flights by AirlineFlightScheduled API? Or is there another API for cargo flights?


Advance schedule data is typically only published by commercial passenger airlines.

Operations by cargo carries are still visible in FlightXML, but will normally appear up to about 24 hours ahead of scheduled departure as flight plans are filed. The FlightXML2 FleetScheduled method or FlightXML3 FleetBoards method can help with discovering these flights.

Thanks for your reply. But I need the function like AirlineFlightScheduled, i.e. input origins and destinations, then returns flights info. Do you have function like this for cargo flights?
