Missing Flight for QTR8408 18th May

#1

Hello,

I’m checking flights for QATAR 8408 to occur in 18th May, I was expection 2 flights for that that.
One from DOH to ALA and another from ALA to HKG.

FlightAware only detects one flight from DOH to HKG.

Other flight trackers shows that information, as you can check by this printscreen:

Why this is happening? How can I treat these cases?

Thanks.

If a flight has multiple legs endpoints like FindFlight can be used to identify potential linked individual flights between multiple airports by providing an origin and destination.

Is there any property that indicates my that this flight has any possible leg? Cause I’m requesting only FlightInfoStatus in my application. I don’t want to duplicate requests just to find if the given flight has any leg…

Thanks.
