MFS metadata usage as feature data


I read the instruction about which cases we are allowed/not allowed to use MFS metadata, but I’m unclear yet. I’d be very appreciative if you could elaborate more on this.

The problem description stated that we could use the metadata for the current flight for which predictions are generated. Can we also use the metadata as a feature for the training model?

Yes, you may use the metadata to construct training features, subject to the same constraints: it should only be used to lookup information from flights you already know about from other sources (this can be the flight you are predicting or a flight you know about from another feature). Please let me know if you have any other questions or need additional clarification!
