Depends on the job and the travel. If it's to the US, I think this can be mitigated a little. Comfort on repeated trips is important, but compared to "the dream job"...
  • Status and paid upgrades to get into AA Main Cabin Extra, particularly on overnights
  • Connecting through on longer westbound daylight flights (also AA MCE on domestics)
  • Looking at daylight eastbound flights (BOS/JFK-LHR on BA, JFK/ORD-LHR on AA)
  • Booking holiday packages to drive down the cost of the Y ticket. WT without a weekend is usually more than WTP with a car/hotel
One issue to content is the absolute price difference. Booking later, Y and W/J can sometimes overlap. A case-by-case policy would look at the cheapest reasonable route, but I guess if word gets around you've stepped off a plane with a fully-flat bed, that might start asking questions from those not in the know how fare buckets work.
