Future arrangements

Post by SandrineHelena » Fri Oct 30, 2020 10:07 am

Hello everyone,

Can you tell me which of the three sentences below are correct and if there is a difference in meaning between them?

I'm going to arrive at Stansted airport at 11:15 a.m., on November 2.
I'll arrive at Stansted airport at 11:15 a.m., on November 2.
I'm arriving at Stansted airport at 11:15 a.m., on November 2.

So basically my questionis: which tenses/structures can we use to talk about future arrangements?

Thank you in advance for your help!
Sandrine

#3 is the most natural. #2 is incorrect.
