For use in an HTML page: https://script.google.com/macros/s/AKfycbw8ZdukRk-gwt228ESWlrXiWiHA973nbaW7_Xt6_KhBjs9Ux88/exec
For use in a straight JSON response: https://script.google.com/macros/s/AKfycbyVM_5sBHWJ0LX006eXUuQStDXyTHPQd6daq8IcEcCk-2DQ7dc/exec

The data is the same between the 2 – it is for flight status of flight 504 of today. The main difference is that the version to be included in an HTML page is JSON data that is meant to be consumed as an included script on the page whereas the one that is a straight JSON response needs to be consumed and parsed by the consumer.

For either to work, the method to read them needs to be a GET
