I’m looking at moving to the FlightAware API from another flight data provider (who shall not be named!) and one of the big aspects of the platform I’m interested in are the push alerts.
I have a couple of questions, but the main question is around SetAlert. Based on the documentation, it looks like setting an alert for a specific flight originating from a specific airport, is not possible without running an additional query first to pull back the faFlightID for the flight we want to set. Am I correct, or is there a way now to set an alert using an operator code, departure code, date, and flight number?
Also, I know this next question is a broad one, but assuming a very normal, non-delayed flight, do you have a sense for the average number of Alerts that would get generated, assuming we would want the standard channels (pre-departure, departed, arrival, delayed, gate changes, etc)?
Thanks again for any info you can provide. I’ve been The API looks really great and I’ve always been a huge fan of flightaware.com and I’m actually sending ADS-B data as well using PiAware.
