Scheduled Departure Time

Hi All,

I am using AirlineFlightScheduleStruct to get the past Airline schedule of a particular Airline ICAO.

eg “-idents { VOZ* } -InAir 0”

In the result, the departure time and arrival time appears to be actual times, not scheduled times. Is there any way to get the scheduled times for past flights?


You can use the AirlineFlightSchedules function (with airline, flight number, and date) to look up what the actually published schedule times of that flight was.

You can also use FlightInfoEx (with the faFlightID) to look up the filed_departuretime, but that represents the time the airline listed in the final flight plan, which does not always match the originally scheduled time if the flight is already running substantially late in the hours prior to departure.
