FWIW, I find the disconnected, e-mail based workflow using a
command-line interface to be *ideal* for working while travelling on
an airplane.  I'm mostly disconnected from the internet, because the
airplane wifi is so slow that you *really* don't want to use a
web-based interface, but I can use offlineimap to sync my e-mail onto
my laptop, and using the command-line interface and the lack of
distractions is great since you really can't surf the web on the
gogoonline's pathetically slow 'net access.

This also means I have an excuse to work on open source projects which
are using e-mail and off-line git, as opposed to $WORK which mandates
the use of gerrit.  :-)

(All of the above applies pre-pandemic, of course.  I've been working
from home and not travelling for the past year+, sigh.)

P.S.  Also, while working on the road, I find that web-based
interfaces are much more tolerable when I'm at my desk with a 40"
screen.  When I'm using a 13" laptop screen, I much prefer CLI
interfaces.  YMMV, of course.
