when studying the departure screen at Berlin-Tegel Airport, I noticed that there are several flights operated by different airlines (for sure no codeshare) at the same time to the same destination, for example
06:45 SN 2590 to BRU
06:45 LH 4640 to BRU
07:00 AF 1135 to CDG
07:00 AB 8154 to ORY
07:05 LH 4310 to CDG
12:50 AF 1735 to CDG
13:00 LH 4312 to CDG
Just a coincidence? Or are the airlines just fighting about the passengers? Wouldn't it then be more reasonable to offer flights at different times?

Airlines will offer flights at times that they think are best and wont avoid them because their competitors have flights at the same time, letting your competitor have the flights at peak times is like conceading defeat in a way.
Similar departures from DUB are like this.

This next one is the same airline to the same city at the same time just different airports.
