Tail number and flight number


New Member

I've checked that in some case an aircraft tail number may be interpreted together a flight number (when they are substantially the same),
generating a confused data mix.

Example: you can see that the small airplane with tail number I-A139 historical flights data get mixed wit the Iraqui airways flight IA139 (the same, but without dash), and the contrary. Quite a mess.

Very probably this is not a single case: such kind of combination already happens other time.

IMHO this is a bug: the existence of the dash should be considered when selecting data form the database.

What do you think about?
