  • Have a good one mate - keep an eye on that Ross - don't let him guide you down the wrong path !

    Its strange that there is a Woolwich and Greenwich in Sydney and a Plumstead in Cape Town, however no Charlton anywhere (that I know of).

    James is flying in from Auckland NZ, meeting up with another Addick who is flying in from Manilla. ( I thought it would be ok for me to answer on James's behalf as it is now 3.20 am in NZ and no doubt he will be akip.)
  • A week!!!!!!
    You’ll not even have time to get over the jet lag......and I’m not kidding
  • I've often done business trips for 3 days, takes about a week to get over it. I try to stay awake most of the way back landing early evening, then home to bed, seems to work.

    Agh.....that’s not so bad then.
  • I had a colleague who once flew from London to a business meeting in Sydney...for 6 hours. Then back again. Obviously on Biz class, but still...

    Not the same level, but i once flew into Zurich for a meeting that we thought would take 4 hours only for it to last 10 mins before we got what we wanted, and we just turned around and went back to the airport.

    There is a Blackheath not too far away from Sydney in the Blue Mountains Park.

    Blackheath's sporting claim to fame, according to wikepedia, was Don Bradman scoring a century at the Blackheath Oval off 3 overs in a social match against Lithgow in November 1931. He went on to make 256.

  • love the Blue Mountains. This thread is reigniting my wanderlust.

    Flew up there by helicopter and did a five hour tour in a 4x4 for our Anniversary, stunning part of the world.

    That Blackheath is a lovely little town.
  • I went there on business about 12 years ago for a fortnight, flew home, met my wife st the airport and then flew to the Maldives for a fortnights hiliday. When we landed I didn’t even know the day let alone the time

    I know the OP is flying from New Zealand to Australia yet I didnt get jetlag once when I went out from Heathrow to either location (via. Singapore) - Did the routes on three occasions and was fine each time the moment I landed.

    Strangely the one time I went to the United States I did briefly have to deal with jetlag there and back

    loved the beach at Coogee, fantastic surf. Walk around the coast to Bondi was nice, past the cemetery on the cliff, lovely place to be laid to rest.

    Not if you're flying First Class
    Does that make the flight shorter then?
    Yes, funnily enough it does.....first class passengers sit at the front of the plane and so obviously will always arrive first.
    Another little perk!

    F*** that!
  • I dont normally feel much in the way of jetlag flying to England, but flying back here it knocks me around for about a week. It does help if you fly from London around mid day arriving in Sydney the following evening then off to bed a few hours after landing, but the 9-10pm flights arriving here at 5am....urggggh
  • I always try to arrive in the morning local time on long haul flights. I then just have to survive that day and usually sleep fine that night. Seems to work for me.

    The only flight I really hate is from East Coast, USA back home, which I thankfully only do once per year or less. Overnight, it's too short to get much sleep and you jump 5 hours. If you take a daytime flight, you arrive in the evening still wide awake.
  • which area you staying james ? weather is due to be shite this week i'm sorry to say.
  • I still haven't learned that jet lag is not helped by getting tanked up on the flight, falling asleep for an hour, before having breakfast and a few more whiskeys.

    Definitely feel better coming out to Oz than flying into UK though.
