Obtaining the tail number

Hello, I’ve searched the forums and didn’t find my answer, but standard Monday caveats apply :slight_smile:

How would I get the tail number of the aircraft that flew a particular route via the API? The calls I’ve tried don’t mention it and the FAQ suggests to contact FA. Having done that I’ve been pointed here, hence the question.

Cheers, Gary

Once you have identified the faFlightID of the flight you are interested in, you can try calling AirlineFlightInfo with that faFlightID as an argument. If the aircraft registration is known, it will be provided in the “tailnumber” field of that structure.
