It's all negotiable. Set expectations and you're fine. If you have meetings that can't be postponed, then of course you get on that plane.

I would have taken it, get out, rent a Hertz and travel on road But somehow unlikely that dtw to ord can go 3000

The person that took the seat was elderly. They offered it after the plane boarded, so they were desperate.

Wow. I would have taken it unless there was a family reason not to

Are we allowed to volunteer off ourselves or is that a no no if we’re flying to client

Do folks in business/strategy consulting at large firms use firm-approved project management systems, like asana or monday? When I worked at a small boutique firm, folks were obsessed with pristine project management systems and plans and charts and matrices. Now that I'm at a very large firm, it seems like teams maybe have some ad hoc spreadsheets, but everything moves so fast and client requests are constantly changing, it's mostly fly by the seat of your pants.
