There is a tutorial on Youtube on creating schedules, just do a search.  If you look at a schedule the items are:

Departure airport, Arrival airport, plane code, airline code, flight number, arrival time, departure time, 1, airline code.

Plane code is in the "airport"_airplanes.txt

Airline code is in the "airport"_airlines.txt

If you want to do a real life schedule you can go to "flight aware" and browse by airport and you will get arrivals and departures.  Using the "More" and the "next 20" or "previous 20" links you can get the info you need. Be aware the schedules also include GA flights and may include airlines and planes/jets that are not in the game. You can skip these or substitute a plane that is in the game, it's up to you.  Or you can just make up your own schedules if you don't care about reality.

Also in case you don't know the GA flights are in a separate schedule "airport"_gaandlocaltraffic.txt which is written differently; there is a heading telling what each column is.

I am not sure I understand your question, are you talking about a schedule from the game like this?

DEN, LAS, 321, F9,  779, 07:47, 12:00, 1, F9
PIT, LAS, 738, WN, 1081, 07:51, 12:00, 1, WN
ONT, LAS, 737, WN, 6439, 07:53, 12:00, 1, WN
DFW, LAS, 321, AA, 2289, 07:55, 12:00, 1, AA
OAK, LAS, 737, WN,  141, 08:00, 12:00, 1, WN
SNA, LAS, 737, WN, 6255, 08:05, 12:00, 1, WN
BNA, LAS, 738, WN, 4961, 08:09, 12:00, 1, WN

All the departure times are the same: 12:00, is that what you mean?  This would be a list of arrivals to LAS, so you see the arrivals times are all different. The departure times are when they left the airport they came from like DEN, PIT, ONT and so on. The game doesn't care what time they left those airports, it only cares what time they will arrive at LAS, so that time doesn't matter.

If that is not what you mean they you will need to give more information about what you mean.
