Client project sponsor: “Oh a full house - this is great!! I’m so happy you guys are all here!” Actual client: “Why the hell are you still traveling? Can’t we have this meeting on the phone? Stay home. If you give my kid coronavirus I will kill you.”

NYC client decided today to can all larger in person gatherings, and prohibit employees and contractors from travelling at all. I'm travelling from L.A. there weekly and feel like this was my last week on the road for a long time. I'm gonna miss the Big Apple...

Well... maybe a bit too late now with the spread. Good luck.

Client all stopped travel however contractors still do. Just cause most of the people stop peeing in the pool doesn’t mean there isn’t still pee in the pool. :)

I do Toronto -> LA every week 😩 Still no mention of stopping travel from client/PM

You’re in Toronto but getting placed on an LA project? How?! I wanna do the same

No

Yes, I've been doing it every week and will continue to do so.

Yes. This is your chance to get that delta one/polaris upgrade.

Fewer people flying means shorter upgrade lists and more first class availability

Let's start an argument. Working 100% remote absolutely downgrades your interpersonal relationships with coworkers, execs, and clients while also keeping you within your own bubble of assigned areas and not allowing you to hear conversations about other areas to develop you further. We need to be back in the office 3-4 days a week for our own best interest. Yes we've proven we can do audits virtually, but our staff have suffered tremendously in their development these past 2 years.
