  • Not a great deal of difference, really: 1. focuses on her journey up to the point of arrival, while 2. focuses on her situation on or shortly after arrival. – BillJ Feb 8 '17 at 19:26
  • "Monday next" is literary usage. Normally it is "next Monday". – user3169 Feb 9 '17 at 0:45

You can think of the difference in this way:

She will reach there by Monday next.

Today, we anticipate that she will arrive there by next Monday.

And now the future perfect:

She will have reached there by Monday next.

Next Monday, we will be able to say "She has arrived".

or

Next Monday, the statement "She has arrived" will be true.

With the future perfect, we are projecting ourselves into the future and referring to her arrival from that projected point in time.
