Operation Enroute don´t return any results

When i request an operation Enroute to LPPT or LPPR (Lisbon and Oporto), the results of struct are empty. If we search flights in ana.pt or your site, we have results.

But if i request an operation Enroute to EDDF (Frankfurt), we have results.

Why we don´t have any results at LPPT or LPPR?

Another issue is in your site we search for LPPR, don´t return any flights to (uk.flightaware.com/live/airport/LPPT);
But if we press the button more, we go to this url:https://uk.flightaware.com/live/airport/LPPT/enroute, and have results.

Another help please: How in your API, can we have the informations about Remarks/Status about flights, if the flight is Scheduled, or Aborting, etc…

thank you for understanding

We are investigating the concern about Enroute not returning as many flights as you would expect. However, keep in mind that our flight coverage in Europe is more limited than our primary coverage areas (US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand).

To determine flight status, look at the timestamp fields returned by FlightInfoEx or other functions.
If actualdeparturetime != 0, then it has departed.
If actualarrivaltime != 0, then it has arrived.
If actualarrivaltime == actualdeparturetime && actualdeparturetime != 0, then it is “result unknown” and we don’t have enough information but we believe it probably arrived.
If estimatedarrivaltime > (filed_departuretime + filed_ete), then it is estimated to be arriving late.
if actualarrivaltime != 0 && actualarrivaltime > (filed_departuretime + filed_ete), then it actually did arrive late.

There are various other conditions that you can imagine and can reconstruct based on the timestamps.
