Jet lag is the bane of the frequent flier. But not today.

In this episode of “Being The Points Guy,” Brian does his best to evade jet lag after a flight from Philadelphia to London. And after a pre-flight meal in the British Airways Lounge, a long slumber in BA first class, a pit-stop at the arrival lounge and a quick cryotherapy session featuring Ariana Grande (well, not really) — we think we might have cracked the code to ending post-flight fatigue once and for all.

TPG also got a first look at BA’s new soft product for 777 first class. See what was in the latest amenities kits in the video below — and don’t forget to subscribe at the bottom of the page!
