We perform one request to the “AirportBoards” endpoint every 2 hours, with the intention to only use one API call per request. When I call up https://flightaware.com/commercial/flightxml/billing/activity/recent, I see that sometimes up to 4 calls are billed per request. I’d like to understand why this is the case, and how I can avoid to go over 1 call. The 2 types that I’m interested in are “enroute” and “scheduled”.
Currently we use the default “AirportBoards” request with no parameters except of “airport_code”
What parameters do I need to set to make sure that I only use 1 call per 2 hours?
