Etihad’s Guide to Beating Jet Lag

ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI HOW TO AVOID JET LAG IT'S RUINED MANY HOLIDAYS SHORT TRIPS. SO IT'S TIME TO LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING WRONG! "I'll just have the one coffee at the airport." • Caffeine should be avoided on the day of flying. "I won't sleep before I get on the plane because then I won't be able to sleep whilst I am flying." • You are going to lose sleep whilst travelling, don't make it worse.. "As soon as I get on the plane I try to sleep" • If it's the middle of the day at your destination you are better off working / watching a film.
