    is going to/will

    Hi,


    I need to know what time the meeting is going to/will start.

    Which one is suitable for the sentence?

    Thank you in advance.

    'is going to' is more natural.

    Thank you.

    what about this one?

    Before I go to my job interview tomorrow, I will/am going to prepare a list of questions I want to ask about the company.

    It sounds that there is a prior plan so it should be "am going to". However I am not sure..

    Re: is going to/will

    There's no 'should' here. It's often a matter of personal choice. I'd probably use BE going to in both sentences, but will​ is acceptable.
