    revising of four sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you revise the following four sentences?

    Arriving at the airport they took a taxi to take them to the hotel.
    Having arrived at the airport in good time they managed to make all the necessary arrangement.

    Arriving at the station, she found her train gone.
    Having arrived at the station in good time they managed to have a good feed.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: revising of four sentences

    After arriving at the airport, they took a taxi to take them to the hotel.
    Having arrived at the airport in plenty of time, they managed to make all the necessary arrangements.

    Arriving at the station, she found her train (was) already gone.
    Having arrived at the station in plenty of time, they managed to have a good dinner/lunch/breakfast/meal.

    Coral's changes are fine, but vil's originals were largely acceptable,
