    late to/for class

    I was late to/for class yesterday.
    I was ten minutes late to/for my appointment.

    Are both prepositions OK with these sentences and do they work as well, please?

    Re: late to/for class

    For is more natural for both.

    However, it's natural to say I got to class/my appointment ten minutes late.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: late to/for class

    Thank you very much, GoesStation, for your help. (The thank and like buttons won't work.)
