Option for IATA flight number

Hi,

A small suggestion, adding a separate optional box for IATA flight number since not all airlines uses the flight number as a callsign, i.e BA1370 uses the callsign SHT2L and EK734 becomes UAE8J and so on. This will make easier for volanta for example to differentiate between what is a callsign and what is a flight number.

They have this already (“Airline” and “ATC Callsign” fields).

Hi,

I might be mistaken but I only see option for (Airline) and (Flight-No).

I was hoping for something similar to PFPX

You can enter (for example):
Airline: EK
Flight-No: 734
ATC Callsign: UAE8J

(The callsign is made up of the ICAO code and an (alpha)numeric combination)

This dose not work. I just tried generating a flight plan using IATA:FZ for FlyDubai Airlines which has an ICAO:FDB.

The ICAO code doesn’t show anywhere in the OFP or when prefiling the flight plan, you can see the ATC FPL blew, instead it’s showing with the abbreviation of FZ
