Ex-EU with a work schedule

I have a question for those of you that use che cheaper ex-EU fares for work - how do you manage to fit the flights around your work schedule?

Let's say you need to be in New York for meetings all day Wednesday. If you fly direct from London then you can get an outbound at approx 8pm meaning you get a full working Tuesday in London and a full day of meetings in NYC on Wednesday. Then coming back you can be in the office in London first thing on Thursday.

However if you go ex-EU, let's take the nearest ones AMS and BRU, in order to be in NYC for Tuesday night you'll need to take Tuesday afternoon off work. And then you'll be lucky to be back in the London office early afternoon on Thursday.

In practice, how many actually do this?
