On the contrary, the recommendation is to drink plenty of water to help counteract the effects of the dry atmosphere inside the plane.
Passengers are encouraged to exercise their legs while sitting and move around the plane when the seat belt sign is switched off, every hour or two
One option to counteract jet lag is to break the trip into smaller segments if it is too long and stay overnight in some city
And, finally, to adjust sleeping hours on the plane to match the destination time.
A helpful way to minimize jet lag is to adapt to the local time and eat accordingly, following the meals that correspond
Also, exposure to sunlight during the day is helpful.
There seems to be some evidence that for most people, traveling west to east is more disruptive
This may be because most people have a circadian period which is a bit longer than 24 hours, making it easier to stay up later than to get up earlier.
It may also be that flights to the east are more likely to require people to stay awake more than one full night in order to adjust to the local time zone
For example, comparing a typical schedule for a traveller flying to the west vs a traveller flying to the east:
Westbound Biological clock & Eastbound Biological clock
Los Angeles local time London local time
The first scenario is equivalent to staying up all night and going to bed at 6 a.m
the next day—8 hours later than usual
But the second scenario (eastward) is equivalent to staying up all night and going to bed at 2 p.m
the next day—14 hours after the time one would otherwise have gone to bed
Some sleep onboard may help the situation somewhat.
The Red-eye flight is another eastward scenario, for example flights departing the west coast of the US at midnight (PST/PDT) and arriving on the east coast early in the morning (EST/EDT)
Relative to the shorter flight time and the time zones advanced, the body gets less than optimal rest to begin a day of activity.
Since the experience of jet lag varies among individuals, it is difficult to assess the efficacy of any single remedy
