    departure and destination locations in FR24

    Sorry if this wastes people's time but I am very new to this and think it is brilliant.

    I like to track aircraft over my house in Cambridgeshire, UK

    May i ask, why do most aircraft not include departure airports and destination airports when you click on the aircraft and they trun red please?

    Some - like AF, BAW, Air Canada, Emirates do but the bulk of aircraft over my house - EZY, RYR, Thompson, Saga, etc do not.

    Is there anything I can do to determine the actual flight service rather than just aircraft type, operator, location etc?

    Thanks

    Thanks both

    I think I understand the reason.

    Its a shame, though, that I cannot cross ref the RYR call signs easily through to a flight number and hence a service destination.

    Excellent pastime though

    The considered opinion is that the alpha numeric callsigns will be fixed for a flight so, in time and with community cooperation, a cross-reference database could be established.

    Take the example in my post.

    We just need someone to establish the service!
