Red line on map

I’ve got a question. I’m currently flying and when I select an another person on the map you get that green line which shows where they’ve flown. But when I zoom in there is a part of that green line that is red that is just behind the aircraft. Does anyone know what this red line means or what it’s purpose is?

I think that indicates the aircraft is overspeeding. Usually due to strong winds

That red line, I think is the altitude of the aircraft are above FL370.

the red line I believe is the legal distance you can be behind the aircraft not sure.

What’s the blue line? I’ve seen red, dark blue and light blue which is usually paired with dark blue

Just like on flight tracking sites, such as FR24, it’s the breadcrumb trail of an aircraft, color coded by altitude.

Thanks. Hang tight. I am getting an official explanation on it.

The line always showed up green for me. Weird

There are two lines. One is the flight plan and one is a breadcrumb line which is the path the plane actually flew. The line I think only shows the last 30 seconds of flight. I may be wrong.
