why not futur antérieur?

why not futur antérieur?

From a quiz on usage of "quand" and future tense:Question was:Quand ils ________, tu iras les accueillir. When they arrive, you will go and welcome them.and the correct answer given was "arriveront".However, I wonder if the futur antérieur would be more appropriate/acceptable? They have to arrive before you can go meet them, right? So, how about:"Quand ils seront arrivés, tu iras les accueillir."Can anyone provide guidance on this?Merci!

I'm replying to this question myself to see if that will keep it in the system because the first time I submitted it the system deleted it.
