Flight Routings in acarsd format
Disclaimer    Instructions    Files    Others

DISCLAIMER
I would like to make it very clear that it is possible for the acarsd-baseflights.db file to get corrupted and cause acarsd to crash. I cannot guarantee that by following the instructions below that this won't happen. If it does, then simply delete the acarsd-baseflights.db file and replace it with the copy that you made...at least that way you will be back to where you started from.
All data is taken from Amadeus.net over the 7 days prior to the date of the file.

Instructions
Each file contains data in acarsd format, which is as follows:
FltNo
FROM-VIA-TO
REMARKS
DAYS (for example --XXXXX) MTWTFSS
Each field is separated by a tab, so should be able to be converted to other formats.

I have checked back for the previous 7 days to see the days of operation, although I can't guarantee how reliable this was. In acarsd, I'm not sure if it actually makes a difference or not, as most of them seem to be just XXXXXXX

To replace your existing data in acarsd you will need to do the following (sounds complicated, but is actually very simple) - I've written step by step instructions, just in case anyone's not sure of how to do things.:
  1. Close down acarsd
  2. Open up a DOS window
  3. Go to acarsd drive/folder
  4. Type the following, followed by return:
    acarsdb.exe -t FLINFO -e FLIGHTS.txt
    (This will extract all the flight data and put it into a text file called FLIGHTS.txt)
  5. Open up the FLIGHTS.txt file, which appears in the acarsd directory.
  6. All the flights will appear in reverse alphabetical order. Select an entire airline's flights, say AC for Air Canada and delete them all.
  7. Open up the airline's file, in this case AC.txt and copy and paste the data into the FLIGHTS.txt file, preferably in the same place you deleted them from.
  8. Repeat steps 5. & 6. for each airline you want to alter in turn*** (see note below)
  9. Save and close the file.
  10. Go back to your DOS window and type the following:
    acarsdb.exe -t FLINFO -f FLIGHTS.txt -o
  11. Close the DOS window
  12. Start acarsd.

*** There will be some flight in your old data not included in the attached ones, as far as I am aware these are ad-hoc flights, but it's up to you if you want to keep them or not...if not and they re-appear then acarsd will just try to look for the routings again.

There is a way to import the data I have attached into acarsd, however as far as I am aware it will only add in flights not currently in the database, it will NOT update any existing flights.
