Strange actualarrivaltime in Alertt


I am testing alerts.

I just received the following alert after a plane landed.

“actualarrivaltime” has been set to “actualdeparturetime”. Why ???

long_desc: "Air France #7795 arrivé à Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle (LFPG/CDG) à 12:05PM CET de LFBO/TLS (Toulouse-Blagnac) Destination (Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle / CDG): Terminal 2F",

actualarrivaltime == actualdeparturetime is our way of indicating the flight result is unknown and we’ve given up on seeing further updates to the flight.
