British Airways - Guide to Jet Lag

I cant beleive that there was no dramas for me arriving in Hong Kong. Flight was fine and the customs were a breeze. Even my luggage turned up without me panicing as I normally stand at the carosel, getting a bit nervouse after 10 minutes and my bag still hasn't turned up.

My seat on the plane was alot better than what I had been used to. The only down side was the constant noise coming from the air conditioning fans being fed into the cabin. It's the same noise you get when you put your car heaters on full to de-ice your car in the morning, which you'll find is that annoying that you would rather put it down to 2 and continue your drive to work cold and with a restricted view for the 1st 5 minutes of your journy. I cant really complain as my seat was more like business class. I was sat in a row of 2 seats that reclined with the leg rest rising enabling me to sleep. Which was possible the worst thing I could of done, hence the jet leg. Saying that, I think British Airways are fully responsible for all those walking around Hong Kong, shattered due to our body clocks being back to front. Within an hour of boarding the plane, we had eaten and the lights were dimmed, which was fine, since it was 11pm. All the window shutters were pulled down and everyone was ready for sleep. This was the case up until an hour before landing when the captain woke us, announcing BREAKFAST was to be served prior to us departing. The cabin crew came round serving the continental breakfast wishing everyone a good morning. 45 minutes later, we had landed in Hong Kong. So there I was, yarning and stretching, walking down the isle, leaving the plane, being wished well and thanked for flying with British Airways. I felt good after my good nights sleep and was ready to face China. Too ready though, I was was fully charged and it was 6.10pm........ Yes 6.10PM..... How was I expected to have a full nights sleep in 4 hours time..... Hence Jet Lag.....
