Sorry Jerry. I think I misunderstood your comment earlier. Our internal flight PER-MEL is on QF10 which will have come in non-stop to PER from LHR as you pointed out. I hope it's not late as it's not due in at MEL until 2050 local time. By then we should have acclimatised ourselves to the Australian clock, having been in WA all week, even though Perth will be three hours behind Melbourne. We usually arrive at Melbourne from London via Dubai at 0630 after passing through two midnights at local times en route - one on the London-Dubai sector and the other on the Dubai-Melbourne sector. We then stay up all day which is a bit of an endurance in order to go to bed in the Melbourne evening. On this trip we get into PER from LHR at tea time local time the day after leaving London. It will be interesting to see if this is any better with the jet lag.
