Hey guys. I am going to Switzerland this summer and obviously have to fly. I always get very, very sick on transatlantic flights because of the night flight and the jet-lag (I don't sleep on planes at all). And since I will have to drive 2 hours from GVA to my mom's hometown (since I'm traveling alone) I'd much rather take a day flight if possible.
I know the only day flights from New York go to England, and while I checked the usual low-fare website, I don't know what other LCC's there are out there. So, for any of you English lads, or anyone else who may know of a good LCC that flies to GVA from a destination served from NY late at night, do I have any options? I know the day flights usually get to England around 8PM, and the latest I found is a flight from LHR to GVA at 7:30 with BA, but there would be no way to make that. I would not be able to spend a nite in England, unless I slept in LHR or a hotel VERY close by that would cost less than 30 pounds a night.
I'd rather fly to GVA, but BSL, ZRH, or even Bern would work just as well. I'd also love to spend less than 1,500 dollars if possible. Otherwise I'd go with MaxJet and sleep all nite, because in that case I'm pretty sure I could get some adequate shut-eye. Also, airline is of no preference, since LX has been with so many partners that I know have mileage with almost every airline alliance out there (exaggeration, I know).
Thanks a million, guys!
