Is it worth upgrading from economy to business from DC to Paris? Flight departs evening and lands at 8A.

We’d be leaving the airport to explore the city a little and then return before boarding our next leg 10 hours later, which is 4 hours.

Economy is $600. Upgrading to business is an additional $1300. Total biz tix is $1900. The flight is more than half empty in economy.

Curious whether my body would be tired / aching while I’m trying to explore if I take the economy option. Thoughts?

I would much rather take that money and upgrade hotels. If you're not taking a US carrier, economy is usually more than fine.

If you can afford it yes. You will sleep better - but I value sleep above a lot of things

Business on Air France is 👌🏼💯 but that’s a lot of money. If you can normally sleep in economy, stay there

My GF has trouble standing up for herself. She's on client travel and one of her co-workers made her really upset (very uncalled for and should have never happened). She called me crying. After consoling her I told her that she needs to go to her manager and possibly HR (yes it's to that level).
She told me she can't and she's not that person (she thinks she'll get the other person fired). She knows that she should and hates that she doesn't stand up for herself. What can I do to help?

Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it? Or is a better approach saying it’s the leadership in general creating a negative and toxic culture? How effective are these conversations really? Trying to assess if there’s any point in bringing this up. Obviously HR works for the company and an employee sharing their thoughts on the unsupportive, cold leaders could bite me in the long run.
