Why does FlightAware show an overly specific or incorrect aircraft description for a particular aircraft type?

0

A single aircraft type can have multiple names in the ICAO aircraft database. FlightAware picks the first one listed unless it has been pointed out to be inaccurate. As a result, it might display B738 as a “Boeing BBJ2” rather than “Boeing 737-800.” Please bring the error up in the public discussions to be corrected.
