For the brains trust I am just starting to play a round with setting up FR24 I have uploaded/ downloaded csv file to get the aircraft and carrier code so I can adjust the final upload. I have read in post up thread that the tripit integration does not work. Is there an app or program that works with FR24 that will enable my email to sync with the app/program (e.g.) tripit and the allow me to auto import to FR24. From what I has seen with the free version I think I may have to add flights manually am I missing something.

FR24 cannot seem to auto calculate arrival times and does not seem to be as easy to edit as open flights. If you get a paid subscription to FR24 do things just become automatic and easier. It would also appear that if you need to add flights manually for connections you need to add bother flights e.g. SQ222 to SQ26 whereas Tripit used to bring these into openflights.

My very limited experience with FR24 so far is that it autofills a lot of boxes - paid subscription

@Matt_01 FR24 does integrate ok with tripit based on the only two flights I have had since March.

biggest problem for me on a bulk import were the equipment and airline.

I sorted by equipment and standardised, then by carrier.

It was a case of rinse and repeat. After fail, delete what had loaded. Edit then try again.

Extensive too as without covid, I would have gone over 2k RPT lifetime segments last year.

if you want I can email you my final .csv that actually loaded.

Do the updates occur automatically post flight. I have some future flights that have not come across and I can not find a way to force them across to FR24, I have authorised FR24 in my tripit account. It might just be a change in the way I do things as when using openflights on a quarterly basis I would import previous and future flights.

I found FR24's TripIt integration to be... not great; hence I ended up using OpenFlights instead and it's worked beautifully.

I would appreciate a copy of your .csv if you don't mind sharing?
