Hi everyone!

Please advise which one is correct:
passengers arriving by flight BA 244
or
passengers arriving on flight BA 244

and why?

Thank you very much in advance.

    I would only use "on". One arrives "on" a flight, physically.

    I could see using "via". This all may differ between BrE and AmE.
