I do not mean for this to be a stupid question, but isn't a scheduled charter an oxymoron? I mean if it's scheduled wouldn't it be just that, scheduled?

I guess you could call it an oxymoron, but oxymorons do exists. For example, UA, AA, and CO's service to Cuba is all "scheduled", but since they cannot fly "scheduled" flights between the US and Cuba, they are charter flights (and one has to receive special, easy to receive, permission to fly the flights). There is also another type of scheduled charter like Sun Country is doing to Laughlin, Nevada. Charter flights that are simply scheduled. While most of the seats are sold by travel companies, however, seats are availble to the general public.

When you buy the tickets, you're really just joining some "club" so it can be called a charter. Some carriers get around 14 CFR Part 121 by doing this.

Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Basically you are right. It is a set time for the trip to leave but the airline can not sell the seats it has to e done by a travel agent or who is booking the charters. Just take a look at some of the charter airlines "schedules" and you can see that most are schedule for the same time or near it, but they can not have scheduled flight to the same destination or departure more than five days a week and they can not book the seats. Its just a loophole that hasn't been filled yet.
