At what setting do we have to set the AI sliders in the traffic setting to get only the scheduled aircrafts at an airport with traffic live? otherwise stated to get only the aircrafts imported by traffic live real schedule?

If you fully remove the MyTraffic schedules, you will only get the flights from the Live schedules. Then a Setting of 50% means that the flight has had a recorded ATC contact within the last 12 Hours, which is true for most long range flights. A setting of 25% means the flight has had a recorded ATC contact within the last 3 hours, which is true for most Continental flight, but already removes a lot of long range flying.

Thank you again for your very clear explanation Burkhard! So when you are taking off from an airport with flights reported by traffic live, as I understand you, one can remove the Mytraffic schedule and still have a busy airport with only real traffic if it is an airport of an important town, like Geneva for instance. But when arriving at LSGS of Sion, which is a small airport, not reported by Traffic Live, you need Mytraffic?!

So the question for many users will be: How do you turn off My Traffic schedules and how do you turn them on again?

More than 6000 airports get data in MyTraffic Live. But not all airlines allow usage of their data, some are blocked. The coverage of Western Europe is more or less complete, so unless there is a special reason Geneva and Sion should be covered as well, since the Information Comes from ATC recievers. Of course if the aircraft that fly into Sion do not use the ADS-B protocol, they will not appear. This protocol is required for aircraft on many major airports, so aircraft that come into a regional field like Geneva are likely to have this Equipment. Just to show that things are order of magnitude more complex than they look.
