Did you already call United? I'd prefer CDG-SFO instead of CDG-EWR-SFO either.

I normally prefer to break things up a bit, but in this case I think I would prefer to keep the direct CDG-SFO, so that I can crash out in a day room during the 11-hour layover.

However, if they did change it to EWR, I would probably accept that, rather than risking bringing human attention to the booking. YMMV.

This extra connection is weird. I don't quite get how some people have it and some don't.

I see it's still for sale under an SN code.

Those who have been rebooked, I'm guessing you're on UA56 at 0925 ex. CDG? More or less the same departure time, but an extra connection and much shorter layover at SFO.
