Wild Card Searches


#1

I was wondering if was too much to ask to have a wild card functinon be put into the searches, like you have already with the aircraft type search. For example, many airlines label flights that are for maintenance/repositioning, as flight #9***. So let’s say you wanted to look for any JetBlue flights like this, you could search for JBU9***. Just an idea.

I think Wild Card is a very good idea.

Another example: Sometimes when listening to ATC, you don’t catch the call sign, only the flight number. Thus you’d like to search for ***420 or even *420 to catch the possibility that it was N420PS (or similar).

Yes, very true. To add to that, GA pilots sometimes only read off the last two or three digits of the registration. A wild card would make life a little easier.
