You could catch a Monday morning direct flight and with the time change get there by noon. Thursday is when it gets bleak. Could do a late afternoon, red eye or Friday morning and work on the plane.

I do the Sunday direct flight with Delta, return Thursday morning. It's the trade off since I'm there all Monday. I've found this works best for me since the direct is only in the evening.

I did LA - NY for 1.5 years, always took Monday flight unless there's a meeting you can't skip on Monday morning

Monday first flight out, Thursday last flight in the early afternoon is what i do
