Having flight date and exact flight number, I would like to know aircraft type (like Boeing 737-400). Is there any service where I can get such information in bulk (for hundreds of flight dates and flight numbers)? I know that flightradar24 provides us with similar data, but it doesn't have any API to get such information for many cases.
