Looking to head to MIA via LAX from MEL and wondering which of QF93 or QF95 would be the best for jet lag?


One will see me arriving in Miami early morning and one late afternoon. I figure one will see me trying to stay awake during the day and one will see me trying to sleep at night. Would like to try the new QF95 but not sure if it's the best option.

Thoughts?

If you can keep yourself occupied during the day and resist the urge to sleep (except for maybe a small nap), arriving in the early morning is better as you will be naturally tired at night and can hopefully reset your clock after one sleep.

I would go for the afternoon because then I can have a quick bite for dinner and then im knocked out at a somewhat normal time and i still manage to get on a correct body clock. 


If i arrive early morning, trying to keep myself awake for the whole day does my head in.

A late afternoon arrival into the US from SYD would be a godsend.

@ daschok you can have a late afternoon into NY if you take QF11 and then QF 15 which gets into JFK at 16.40 pm in theory. Otherwise it is early morning into LAX or mid afternoon to DFW

Do check those itineraries very very carefully.  the only way to arrive MIA in the early morning is to be on a redeye overnight flight from LAX; there are three that leave between 9pm and 1am Pacific Time arriving between 5am and 9am.  In other words, after spending all day in LA, you'd then take a narrowbody overnight to MIA.   yuck.

QF95 does not arrive in time to catch many Eastern US destined nonstops from LAX.  Miami, however, does have one flight leaving 12:40pm that arrives around 9pm Eastern.   To me that's perfect.   off the plane and into bed.

Aaflyer, QF 95 gets re-timed when the PER-LHR flights start.  Then it is 19:00 instead of 9:45 arrival into LAX.
