    Ghostflights approaching EDDF (Frankfurt)

    Since nearly 48hours 2 Ghostflights approaching EDDF if you look into FR24 via Browser or App.

    This means for indefinite time the flights WZZ16AD and CFG282 appearing to be in the approach to EDDF but they never land and dissapear (see attached screenshot).

    Did someone of you made the same experience ?

    Regards, R.

    Update (10:03 UTC): since 9:00 UTC the problem seems to be fixed, I guess it helped that I had opened an incident at FR24.
    Update (16:09 UTC): since 11:00 UTC the ghostflights appear again, first WZZ16AD now CFG282 ... it's really strange, that FR24 shows flights which are not there

    This is FR24s third party data sources messing everything up. It's been raised numerous times but each time they reply denying it and claim they don't use any third party data sources when all the evidence is right there on the screen.

    Instead of posting the same nonsense in every thread I suggest that you read https://www.flightradar24.com/how-it-works

    Can you send a link to any of these flights?

    From the very first line :

    "Flightradar24 combines data from several data sources"



    Garbage in. Garbage out.

    And the next sentence

    The ADS-B, MLAT and radar data is aggregated together with schedule and flight status data from airlines and airports

    What is your point? The fact remains that your third party data sources are garbage. I've lost track of how many times this has been said over the years yet you've done absolutely nothing to fix it and the same complaints about incorrect flights showing up in stupid places on the map come up time and time again. Like I said : garbage in = garbage out.

    480 posts, "lost track of how many times" complaints, 0 error reports and you just keep complaining based on incorrect assumptions.
    If there is a bug, why just not submit a bug report (with links, screenshots and full information) here on the forum or to support?
    Posting complete nonsense without concrete references and incorrect assumptions doesn't make any sense at all.

    I genuinely believe you are trolling when you come out with these statements. The issues have been raised by myself and others countless times on these very pages and also direct to the support address. Support address just gives the usual empty "we're looking into it" sound bites and nothing changes and whenever the issues have been raised on here they're either

    a) been completely ignored.
    b) been told to contact support and then ignored.
    c) been deleted by the mods/yourself.

    Just admit it Mike : as far as you're concerned your site works perfectly and anyone disagreeing with you is wrong. In 8 years I've yet to see a single constructive response from you in answer to performance, functionality and data quality issues being raised by members. Every response is either a complete denial that there's any issue or a load of corporate PR guff delivered with your usual condescending tone.

    Still waiting for the first bug report.
