And it's Sunday again, time to pack and get ready to wake up for a 6AM flight. Is this really worth it?

Take 7am flights instead!

No

If you're asking, you know the answer.

Oh my god I ask this question every f**king Sunday.

Better than traveling on Sundays 😭😭😭

Is the 6 am flight really necessary? I did that for a while before switching to an 8 am and still made it to the client well before noon. I feel like clients should accept that if they know you're traveling.

I actually prefer Sunday night travel

On a long term project and I said I'd never give up my Sunday's yet here I am taxing from DCA as I type this. Monday mornings blow.

How does everyone bill for travel? Example - flying out Monday for a depo on Tues Wed, flying back Thursday. My gut has always been to bill for working hours time on the flying days and hearing days, but is that what everyone does? Can I bill 8 hours (or more) for a full travel day even if I’m not working every minute (but I’m also not not-working)? Nobody at my firm talks about this and at this point I’m too embarrassed to ask.
