A more basic question:
In the example "Ils attendent son arrivée d'une minute à l'autre" would the wording be different if the person awaited is female?
This relates to:Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect -
in the example, "ils" refers to an all male or mixed sex group of people. If those waiting were all women, you'd simply say "elles" instead of "ils".

Oh, sorry, you are speaking about the person AWAITING, not the persons WAITING. Alan is correct.
