Got told the day before thanksgiving I needed to be in Frankfurt on Monday. So I told my mgr I could only leave on Sunday, and had to fly direct from Denver, vs. through NYC (which was what we normally did, since the client was based in NYC). So I was able to buy a business class fare for the DEN-FRA on LH and upgrade to 1st using a United GPU. It was an old configuration 747 where the upper cabin had a full recline seat + a separate bed. Best food/ service I've had on any international carrier

Do you find your flexibility is exploited now that travel is banned and you're working from home? Specifically tech consulting I.e.. > 50-60+ Hours a week >10+ hour days > Regular weekly nights/weekend/on-call

I am traveling to Mumbai very soon and taking Air India from Newark. I fly into Newark on Delta. I decided to take a 15 hour layover to hang out with a friend in NJ. It also didn’t hurt that it was cheaper as well. I am assuming that I can exit the airport with my checked in bags and don’t have to deal with immigration. Right?
