US Airways

Hi Guys,

Just wondering what the story on US is. You guys say they provide the tail numbers, but they do not as far as I know (see here: flightaware.com/live/flight/N744P). The last data it’s pulling is 11 weeks old. Is this because US does not participate in ADS-B (does that matter?) or are they just not sending data to you all?


It was the same for British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa and KLM as well. They had tail numbers visible for about a 10 day span, but it doesn’t go past April 6 for any of those airlines anymore. Not sure what happened.

Anyone know?

The link in your post is to today’s flight, so it seems to work fine.

Not all airlines provide coverage across their full scope of operations, but US Air has been fixed.

British Airways and Air France have seemed to go back to the visible tail numbers, for today at least. I haven’t checked US Airways, KLM, or Lufthansa yet, however.

Fixed?! All right, awesome!
