Title: [ok] Distinquish between different DC-8 variants.
Post by: JumboShrimp on August 09, 2019, 07:55:02 PM
For DC-8-6x, distinguish between vanilla, CF and AF models on the flight listing of the route.

For example, DC-8-6x, DC-8-6xAF, DC-8-6xCF all show as DC86

I suspect same might be true for DC-8-5x and DC-8-7x

The DC-8-6xAF models show on flight listings as DC86F and DC-8-5xAF models show up as DC85F for sure.

From what I've been able to work out, only full freighters get an 'F' affix to their type designator, not combis. Perhaps they could have a 'C' affix to make it obvious?

That would be helpful

I will change the current code (it does add the 'F' already!) so that combi code is now "xxx-C" and cargo "xxx-F"

A320-C / A320-F

The "-" in between because some Icao codes end in C (DH8C) for example, so that you will know that DH8C-C is a combi dash-8 and DH8C is pax...
