It is advisable to be at the airport at the scheduled departure time in case the flight is able to leave before the actual estimated departure time."

My initial reading: "Be sure to show up on time so you don't miss your flight, because if it's leaving late it might leave early." I think there must have been a whole series of people on something good in order to account for both the creation and the use of the "technical" term "actual estimated departure time" =P
