Some flights did not receive alerts

I was watching some flights that were on AirlineFlightSchedules (AeroAPI/FlightXML 2). These flights were scheduled to depart on March 12, but I didn’t receive any updates on them. And looking at FlightInfoEx they are canceled ( actualdeparturetime , estimatedarrivaltime and actualarrivaltime with value of -1).

GLO1370-1615338480-schedule-0295
GLO1440-1615421209-airline-0639

GLO1242-1615393500-schedule-0410
GLO1728-1615394400-schedule-0459

These flights are until March 12th.

I was looking at today’s flights and I found these flights that were canceled and I didn’t receive any alerts.

TAM3241-1615729860-schedule-0145
TAM3388-1615733640-schedule-0190
TAM3648-1615742940-schedule-0204

And the flight GLO4342-1615858667-airline-0138 was delayed in 6 hours and 45 minutes and we didn’t receive any alert.

I have set to receive any alert type of flights departing at SBGR/GRU:

{
  "alert_id": ***,
  "enabled": true,
  "description": "Any flight From GRU / SBGR",
  "type": "General_Aviation",
  "ident": "",
  "user_ident": "",
  "aircrafttype": "",
  "origin": "SBGR",
  "destination": "",
  "date_start": 0,
  "date_end": 0,
  "channels": [
      {
          "channel_id": 16,
          "channel_name": "FlightXML push",
          "mask_summary": "meetingFlight",
          "e_filed": true,
          "e_departure": true,
          "e_arrival": true,
          "e_diverted": true,
          "e_cancelled": true,
          "target_address": "******"
      }
  ]
}

Could you help me understand why I didn’t receive these alerts?

It is likely that they were “cancelled” due to no data being received for up to a couple hours after the filed departure time and not with an explicit cancel message from the airline.

If there is an explicit cancel message from the airline, we would then trigger the alert.
