The BPKFlightLeg component contains nine properties, from which five are mandatory.

                                                  departureArrivalTime: String,
                                                  nextDayArrival: String?,
                                                  flightDescription: NSAttributedString,
                                                  stopsInfo: String,
                                                  highlightStopsInfo: Bool,
                                                  duration: String,
                                                  operatedBy: String?,
                                                  warning: String?,
                                                  carrierLogo: BPKIconName
  • departureArrivalTime, nextDayArrival, stopsInfo, duration, operatedBy, warning expect Strings;
  • flightDescription expects an attributed string;
  • highlightStopsInfo expects a boolean;
  • carrierLogo expects a BPKIconName.

If a flight has more than one leg (i.e. 1 or more stops), then highlightStopsInfo must be included and be set to true.
