This self-service plan provides access to the following APIs:
Historical Flight Status by Flight
Historical Flight Status by Airport
Historical Flight Status by Route
Regardless of which API you use, the cost is calculated on the number of Historical Flight Statuses returned. For example, if you request Historical Flight Statuses at London Heathrow on a given day, you may retrieve 300 Historical Statuses. However, if you use Historical Flight Status by Flight, you will only retrieve a single Historical Status.
This plan costs USD $100 per month for 1 to 1,000 Flight Statuses returned. For each additional Flight Status over 1,000, the charge is USD $0.10 per.
To add an Application to your account with this plan, log into the Developer Center, navigate to the Dashboard, and select "Create a new application". There are two Plans to choose from - "Commercial Plan - 3" or "Historical Status Monthly Plus Overage".

Example 2: You sign up for this plan and make 1 or more requests resulting in less than 1,000 Historical Statuses returned. Result: $100
Example 3: You make multiple requests resulting in 3,567 Historical Flight Statuses returned. Result: $100 for the first 1,000 plus $256.70 overage for the additional 2,567 Historical Statuses returned. Total charge: $356.70.
