Lose weight and beat Jet Lag

My friend Keith says that when you're flying West to East on an evening plane, the way to prevent jet lag is to get into your new time zone pdq — if your head says it's 2.00 in the morning, whilst your body tucks into a meal that zaps up your blood sugars, jet lag is worse — so don't have the meal. I find this advice works, for me anyway.

And British Airways are right up there in the fight against jet lag. One of our party ordered a vegetarian meal back in January, but when she phoned to check all was well found it wasn't, and they needed at least a day to do vegetarian in Cattle Class; a bit odd as they'd rustled something up from top deck on the way over on no notice at all. Heigh ho. Bad news, no dinner. Good news, less jet lag.

I returned home to an email from BA, sent four hours after my flight landed with the title "We're missing you" and starting "it's been a while since you last travelled with us..." It had indeed. Four Hours. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, but I think it's good for a relationship to have some times apart. I have to say I'd be missing BA even more if they hadn't gonked up my friend's meal arrangements both ways this time...
