(I don't think of a flight as a meeting unless the meeting is being held on the aircraft, so presumably "meeting organizer schedules an event" should be "event organizer schedules an event", where "meeting organizers" is a subclass of "event organizers".)

So, if the event is a flight, the event has a start time that's something such as "time to arrive at the airport from which the flight departs" or "time the flight takes off" and a duration or end time.

In that case, if, for example, the flight organizer is in one location, and the flight is from another location and to another location, presumably the start and end times aren't scheduled in the flight organizer's location - is the beginning time scheduled in the departure airport's location and the end time scheduled in the arrival airport's location?
