Whe to use FA versus the Future with quand, lorsque, etc.

When they arrive, you will welcome them.  

One follows the other, why doesn't this use the FA?

I think it's because you are talking about their arrival in the future sense, not something that has (theoretically) already happened in the future. To use FA, the sentence would have to be: "When they have arrive/once they have arrived ...".
