Random Q - Is it acceptable to regularly schedule personal flights during work hours? Like four flights during work hours in the last 1 1/2 months and not take time off?

You're a professional. So long as the work is getting done (I'm assuming you're working on the flights or making up the time before/afterwards), it's probably fine. I'd let your supervisor know, so that they know when you're reachable and when you're not. I have never worried about such things from my teams, so long as the work is getting done.

Personal flights should be on personal time. You know this. Not saying you can’t get away with it, but it’s tough if you get caught.

Cool. As long as you boss agrees, and there are no urgent needs that arise when you’re not reachable. A lot of roles requires regular interaction with a team or client - hard to say that you own your schedule completely.

Yes and just saw you’re OOO or have an appointment.

If you are a high performer, get work done and doesn’t conflict with client commitments then it’s probably ok. If you’re not performing well or it’s crunch time for a project it’s not a good look (even if it doesn’t actually impact your work, people will assume it’s why you aren’t performing well).

If not disruptive and you get your work done I think it is fine. But if it is eg on Thursday from 1-5pm and you dont attend meetings it gets trickier

I think it depends. If they're unavailable 8-10am or 4-6pm, probably not a big deal. Also depends on the reason. I had to go to a couple funerals on short notice and the only flights that worked were late afternoon, but I worked extra the previous day to make up for it.

Flights are a big time commitment …if you get caught it’s no good

I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)
