Noticed something interesting?


#1

I stumbled upon a random tracking of South African Airways 204 JFk to OR Tambo. I noticed that it says the aircraft being used in an a340-300 and the distance is around 8000 nm which is well above that aircrafts capabilities. Is this a flight aware issue?


#2

For me, it says:

Distance Direct: 6,936 nm


#3

7969 statue miles = 6925 nautical miles.

Your distance calculator used statute miles for some reason.


#4

Maybe “statute miles” is picked in My Account. You can pick sm, nm, or km.

May be an A346 instead of A343; sometimes the code the airline provides us (like “340”) is ambiguous so we guess the most common one.
