British Airways boss shares flight sleep tip – including how to prevent jet-lag

A British Airways boss has shared his anti-jet lag tip.

Wille Walsh says it’s vital to sleep on the plane if you want to feel refreshed when you land.

And to do this, the CEO of BA owner IAG, recommends enjoying a glass of wine or two.

Willie told The Sun : “A couple of glasses helps you to sleep.

“Red wine is the cure for everything!”

While Willie is correct that a few drinks can help you to doze off, you shouldn’t overdo it.

Alcohol can mess with the quality of kip you are getting.

The Drink Aware website explains: “When you drink alcohol before bed you may fall into deep sleep quicker.

“This is why some people find drinking alcohol helps them drop-off to sleep.

“But as the night goes on you spend more time in this deep sleep and less time than usual in the more restful, Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep.

“This can leave you feeling tired the next day no matter how long you stay in bed.”

This isn’t the only drawback to boozing on board a flight.

Alcohol can cause dehydration, sparking symptoms like dizziness and headaches.

It can also cause your skin and lips to dry out.

So when following Willie’s tip, stick to his advice and keep your limit to a “couple” of glasses of plonk.
