I think I’ve stumbled over an issue with the data being returned by GetLastTrack and GetHistoricalTrack for what is an historical flight.
I’m calling FlightInfoEx for ident NH202 as follows
flightxml.flightaware.com/json/F … 0&offset=0
As expected this returns me the information for 10 flights.
I then make a call to GetLastTrack for the same ident
flightxml.flightaware.com/json/F … dent=NH202
This returns me 745 rows of data. As an aside it would be great if this method also returned the faFlightID . As it is at the time of writing the data being returned appears to be for faFlightID ANA202-1337664533-airline-0311.
To verify this I made the following call using the GetHistoricalTrack to return the historical tracking data for the same faFlightID
flightxml.flightaware.com/json/F … rline-0311
This only returns me 62 rows of data. The timestamp on the first 62 rows matches the first 62 rows of data returned by GetLastTrack so I’m fairly certain this is the same flight. I would however expect to have recieved the same 745 rows of data using this method.
Am I correct in assuming this is a bug or am I using the wrong methods?
