If it is a somewhat lengthy (5+ hours) eastbound segment then I'd love to it be a night flight. Especially if I'm not travelling in coach.
for example BA
, have dinner in the lounge courtesy of BA
, then when u get on the plane go straight to sleep. 7 hours later you're in LHR
and its morning.
same for A 268 LAX
. Although that one arrives around 3pm in london.
however when travelling in economy i prefer for the flight to land late in the afternoon in europe if it is a transatlantic. That way I dont have to try to stay awake all day long.
bad example of this is Swiss A330 JFK
. Arrives at 9:15 am in geneva! I can't contain myself until bedtime!
