ok thanks when spring break rolls around I will use flight aware to make a schedule for that

I suggest you try and make a small schedule or two in the mean time to practice, and get a feel for it.

Do you have a spreadsheet program? Most of us use one for our schedules.

So a spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel? If that is what you mean then no because I don’t feel like paying for a spreadsheet program

Many free and good 'MS Offiice-like' products with a spreadsheet ('Excel').  These free products are the only word/number/figure-processing programs I've used for 14+ years 

Try -

Apache OpenOffice - https://www.openoffice.org/

LibreOffice - https://www.libreoffice.org/

G Suite (Google's 'Office') - https://gsuite.google.com/ (get Sheets for spreadsheet activities)

You just need to add it into the airlines file in the same format as the others

Remember all the lax text files work together. Whatever line you put in the schedule, will need to be checked that the airline is in the airlines file, the airport is in the airport file, the plane is in the airplane file and the airline is in the terminal file.

I usually start here:
Airlines (https://airlinecodes.info/)
Airports (https://www.world-airport-codes.com/)
Then I check if the information matches with Wikipedia. (https://en.wikipedia.org/)
If not, I extend the search with the search engine of my choice. (https://www.qwant.com/)
If I cannot resolve a discrepancy even after an intensive search, I usually go with the Wikipedia information.

This is just an example of how I proceed. It does not mean that it should or even has to be done this way.

Edit: If you watch a playback of a flight on e.g. Flightradar24, you can easily get the IATA and ICAO code.

According to current information (without guarantee):
PAX (747-400): KJFK
CARGO (747-400F, 747-8F): KDFW

Such information can be found in less than 5 seconds with the RC-Aircraft Master List by @Pedantic G!

It’s really time to start your own thread. You’ve hijacked this one enough. 
 

You’re putting very little effort into doing anything on your own. If you really want to learn something you’ll look into software like @scoobflight mentioned and you can self-serve  

This thread is for learning how to do something yourself. That hasn’t happened  the last 5 pages or so.

Ok thanks for that. I tried doing my own thread but I didn’t know which section to put it under.
