Well, mine are pretty simple really..

If my arrival time is early in the morning, I sleep as much as possible on the plane, then make sure I stay up till a normal bed-time (9PM+) the first evening.

If my arrival time is evening, I stay up as much as possible on the plane, so as to wear myself out! This way I am more likely to be able to sleep on the other end..

Any other tactics out there?? - overcoming jet-lag can be a big part of making sure you get the most out of your holidays, after all who wants to lose valuable days feeling tired! ;)

Hehe Pete,

I would agree with you EXCEPT when I am flying Singapore Airlines.... no matter what time I arrive where, for what purpose, I just seem to be hooked to their entertainment system :) And I hear Lufthansa is now adding internet (only selective sites) to some of their flights....how hard will it be then to sleep?! Speaking of which, if anyone out there knows how I can get Travellerspoint to be one of those selective websites on Lufthansa, be sure to drop me a message!!!!

Don't think my method is the best for jetlag though; I am usually very tired after long flights on good airlines especially! The adrenaline of travelling just keeps me on my feet...

Happy Travels!

loads of water, drink loads of it
stay off the liquer and wine unless you're made to drink it, i guess its fine
water is good plain i.e
and get as much sleep as you can, its dry up there, and your skin and bod could do with a slight touch of pamper too
cover those feet, keep yourself warm
and for goodness sakes, save up for a firstclass if you can, "sleeping" in economy can kill you, if you're anything more than 183cm
