Hi,

In the sentence "He was scheduled to fly back to London at 10 PM," does 10 PM refer to the time of his arrival in London, or the departure time of his flight to London?

I'd appreciate your help.

    10 PM is the departure time. "To fly (back to London) at 10 PM" means "To fly (back...) starting at 10 PM".

    For it to mean arrival time, it would be "To fly back to London, arriving at 10 PM" or "He was scheduled to get back to London at 10 PM".
