I always fly business or 1st class.  Cattle class just doesn't cut it for me unless I'm getting the hell out of a country in a hurry (eg impending war, insurrection, coup etc).

Drink lots and lots of water during the long flight, but stay away from alcohol and caffeine. Take a relaxing hot shower and then sleep for a long, long time. I found that if I can manage to stay in bed for 15 to 20 hours I’ll feel no jet lag afterwards.

Not all travellers can do that. I've been caught up in a number of vicious wars, but it was an occupational hazard and one that can turn very ugly.  Wars per se don't worry me, but a coupe can be really nasty to get out of, especially in Africa and other parts of the less developed world.
