He would meet her when she is free.
He will meet her when she is free.

Are both sentences correct? If so, what is the difference in meaning?

Thanks.

    "Would" suggests that there is some circumstance that might prevent him from meeting her. Perhaps we don't know whether she is willing.

    Both are correct, although in the first sentence we would often expect something like "He would meet her if she has time / had time."
