Jet lag is a complex condition:

The adjustment process of the circadian system is slow for jet lag, averaging 60 minutes of phase adjustment per day after a phase-advance shift [eastbound flight] and 90 minutes per day after a phase-delay shift [westbound flight], symptoms can last for days after the flight. West-to-east trips may require 1 day of recovery for each time zone crossed. East-to-west journeys may require 1 day of recovery for each one and a half time-zones crossed. For example, when you cross 6 time zones flying east, it might take 6 days to recover, but when you fly west, it may take no more than 4 days for your body to fully catch up.

The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD) has classified jet lag as a sleep disorder

Each circadian rhythm sleep disorder involves one of these two problems:

Circadian rhythm sleep disorders all involve a problem in the timing of when a person sleeps and is awake. The human body has a master circadian clock in a control center of the brain known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus. This internal clock regulates the timing of such body rhythms as temperature and hormone levels. The primary circadian rhythm that this body clock controls is the sleep-wake cycle. The circadian clock functions in a cycle that lasts a little longer than 24 hours.

The circadian clock is "set" primarily by visual cues of light and darkness that are communicated along a pathway from the eyes to the suprachiasmatic nucleus. This keeps the clock synchronized to the 24-hour day. Other time cues, known as zeitgebers, also can influence the clock's timing. These cues include meal and exercise schedules. Circadian rhythms and their sensitivity to time cues may change as a person ages.
