Calgary To London tips to avoid Jetlag

Jump to last reply

I am travelling from YYC to LHR. Departing at 15:00 Calgary time and arriving 06:30 London time. I need to be alert and awake at work at 11:00 (am) London time (ie. shortly after I arrive) and have a long day in London ahead of me.

What is the best way for me to approach this flight?

Immovane (Zopiclone) and sleep the whole flight, waking up before landing and heading off into the London day with 6 hours sleep under my belt?

I'm aware I'm not going to avoid jet lag, but I'm curious, from other's experiences, what is the best way to deal with this flight?

p.s. While you're at it, I depart London at 10:30 am and arrive in Calgary at 12:50 pm local time for my return trip later in the week. What is my best strategy for the return?
