    I think they're all correct, but can mean slightly different things.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I agree with Red.

    1. One has an appointment and one is happy.
    2. Same as 1, but a bit wordy.
    3. Same as 1.

    4. This is a bit idiomatic. It would normally be used as a proposed appointment. It awaits confirmation. The future tense "I will be" can also be used.
