Now the awfully big adventure begins!

I am flying from Heathrow terminal 3 and I am going to land in Pudong Airport in Shanghai. I am travelling with Virgin Atlantic and I leave at 1:30 pm.

I need your help:

  1. How long will the flight take me?
  2. What is the time difference between the UK and China?
  3. What time do I land?
  4. Should I sleep on board the flight or stay awake?

The first person to send all the right answers will get something from China when I get back!

Good luck and may the force be with you!

    Hi Mr Wolmarans,
    The scheduled duration of the flight is 11 hours.
    The time in China is 8 hours later than it is in England.
    You will arrive at 8:30am Chinese time
    You should sleep on board. It is a very long flight!

    2)time difference is 8 hours ahead

    3) landing time 12:43 pm in UK but 8:30 in China

    4) sleep for at least 9 hours so you can be awake at landing

    P.S. bring hazard boiled sweets to suck on at take off and landing (or your ears pop and it hurts)
