Web site and flightXML2.0 API data does not match!

Hello,

I’m sending requests to FlightInfoEx API for a flight number. It returns 15 days data.
payload = {'ident': 'PGT2207','howMany':'15', 'offset': next_offset}

10 Sep 2018 results doesn’t match with website data:

You are looking at the wrong flight on our website (different day). The actual flight page for that FlightXML data is this page:

Thanks but why "actualarrivaltime"still different on each source?


#4

I’ve edit question. Same problem still exists?


#5

The website is showing the estimated arrival time since a formal arrival message was not received for this flight. The actual arrival time seen in the FlightXML response matches up with with the arrival time in the flight’s track log.
