Search using Tail not working


#1

I am attempting to use the Search method to get information about a flight by Tail Number but no results are returned. If I use the Flight ID it works but not with the tail/registration.

I am having the same issue with SearchBirdseyeInFlight.

Thanks.


#2

I’m having the same issue using FlightInfo method. It works when I specify the flight ID but not the corresponding tail number…

If you use “SearchBirdseyeInFlight”, you can specify “{ident_or_reg XXXXX}” to search by operating ident or actual aircraft registration.

When using “Search”, the “-idents” operator will only search for the ident it is operating under, which is not necessarily the same as the aircraft registration. (I’ll look into adding a “-identOrReg” operator soon.)
