I am flying every week IAD-LAX. Do you fly back red eye or all day Friday?

My preference is eastbound daylight flights Friday and work in the air. Thursday night red eyes are usually full and even if you sleep gate to gate you at best get 5.5 hours of low quality sleep regardless of class traveled, plus if you land at 6am there will be some pressure to go in the office.

Would you take a flight that lands at 2:00am?

Sometimes, barring a need to be in the office Friday or early calls. Depends in part on whether or not you're single. But I wouldn't willingly do that arrival time frequently.

I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship.
