Same flight number for two linked flights... what happens???


#1

21-Nov-2005 A319/J Minneapolis St Paul Int’l [KMSP] Salt Lake City Int’l [KSLC] 17:20 CST 18:34 MST Scheduled
21-Nov-2005 A319/J General Edward Lawrence Logan Int’l [KBOS] Minneapolis St Paul Int’l [KMSP] 14:57 EST 11:15 CST Scheduled

It is now 6:40PM EST or 5:40CST and the flight to SLC is in the air according to NWA. However on the site the first part of the flight is still showing, with its route to MSP and the flight to MSP is still showing as ‘Scheduled’ when it is completed. The leg from MSP to SLC is showing as ‘Scheduled’ when it is in the air, and there is no indication that it IS on the way to SLC.

HELP!!! When the FIRST leg is finished, and the second has started, the updates to show that this has happened seem not to work correctly. I have noticed this with flights to and from Toronto that I have observed that involve this type of use of the same flight number for more than one leg.

The first flight was filed twice (probably because they botched the arrival time). The lower flight plan was flown.
21-Nov-2005 A319/J General Edward Lawrence Logan Int’l [KBOS] Minneapolis St Paul Int’l [KMSP] 02:57PM EST 11:15AM CST Scheduled
21-Nov-2005 A319/J General Edward Lawrence Logan Int’l [KBOS] Minneapolis St Paul Int’l [KMSP] 01:37PM EST 03:35PM CST 2:58

The second flight took to the air at 5:40PM. With the 5 minute delay in our data feed, it would appear on the website at 5:45PM.
