New project in new city. Earliest flight out on Monday morning would have me land at 11am in client city, on site around noon. Should I fly in Sunday night?

There will always be more clients and meetings, but a lost Sunday night is gone forever!


100% no. Who brainwashed you into thinking landing at 11am Monday was too late?


Depends how motivated you are, I hate flying Sunday night


Flew out on a Sunday on one of my first projects...went to the client site at 8am, waited for my team to get in at 1130am to swipe me in...never again


What time does the rest of your team get in? If it is an hour or so, I wouldn't worry about it. Just don't take an early return flight. You're likely costing the project more by the additional meal and hotel night to be there an hour or so earlier?


Lunch on Monday isn't bad - where are you going? If you have to connect or fly more than 4 hours - its more than reasonable. Avoiding connections is also the way to go.


If your wake up time is 3am-4:30am, fly out Sunday because those kind of Sunday nights are pure anxiety.


Pack a PBJ for lunch and get there Monday son!


I land at 1pm on Mondays. It is awesome.


I would only fly Sunday night if you have to wake up before 630am to make your flight. Sunday night flying isn't that bad just pack on Friday during the day and leave for the airport around 8pm


Set expectations early. NOOOO

No just start first thing Tuesday and take it easy on Monday. If Deloitte don't allow that you need to move.

Fly Monday night instead.



Yes for the first few months

Rather fly on Sunday night, hate to get up early on Monday mornings

Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?
