I always found ethanol, preferably of the Scottish variety, worked quite well on my international travels. BA First Class had an excellent selection, and biz class wasn't too bad either. The Concorde lounge at LHR had some REALLY nice stuff.

Great subject!

Melatonin pill sized at 5 mg needs to be cut in half.  They work great at
that dosage (sublingually) although I wonder why they discontinued the
tinier 1 mg pils that didn't need to - and couldn't - be halved.

I bought a trial bottle of Somnapure but that left me feeling totally
whacked, irritable, and exhausted the next day...  Anyone else tried this
product?  I think they must contain SJ Wort, which really does not work
well on me.  They also smell just like valerian, which I also do not react
well to...

I carry melatonin which helps some if I remember to use it. I forgot on my
way to Tokyo, big mistake.I'd found that the latest batch of melatonin we
got didn't seem to work as well as previously so I researched maybe taking
too. Turns out we've got 3mg stuff now where we had 1mg before and in some
cases with melatonin less is more. I experimented in Manila with taking 1/2
a pill and actually found it was more effective. Go figure huh?

We used to get a “medical kit” when we traveled that had some “happy
pills” in it to help us sleep.  When I used to go from places like
Singapore to Tokyo to Chicago I would have a drink, meal, then take a pill
and be lights out until just before landing in Chicago.

You would still be fuzzy for a day or two afterwards, but it did help the
transition.

My kids always got a kick out of how I could leave Singapore at 07:00
local time and be back home the same day late in the afternoon.  Try
explaining that to a 6 year old.

Sadly I'm really bad at sleeping on the plane so I generally prefer east
to west. Most times I fall asleep just after the plane gets up in the air
and sleep until about the time the drinks cart comes, so maybe 20-30
minutes total, then I'm awake the rest of the flight. Not so bad for a 6
hour flight to LA but annoying on a 12 hour flight to Tokyo.Fortunately on
the way out I slept about 2 hours in the airport in Tokyo which is a first
for me. Imagine the adrenaline hit when I awoke to see the plane was
boarding. That actually worked out perfectly. I took a second to get my
head together, got up and walked directly onto the plane. I generally like
being one of the last people to get on...

West to East is always the easiest as long as you sleep on the plane.  I
always hated he general feeling or “fuzziness” after I returned from an
overseas flight.
Best thing to do is to get out in the sun as much as possible as soon as
you return.  It re-syncs your circadian rhythms….

Slow start for me today, I'm trying to make up some sleep though I did
managed to sleep maybe 4 or 5 hours on the plane.
The return trip was actually more fun than the trip out. I actually
kind of enjoyed my layover in Tokyo. I traded some USD for Yen and bought a
bunch of snacks, 6 kinds of Kit Kat, 2 kinds of Pocky. I also had a really
nice soft ice-cream. Had fun looking at all the weird foods for sale...
