SFO-FRA is said to be about 11 hours...
It was 12 hour block time cutoff. Europe routes basically didnít qualify. Seems like that has been relaxed which is a nice thing

This list were from years ago and archived on FT, not aware UA has a published list today

But EWR-CPT is a pretty safe bet for having PJs

Any recent experiences on whether SFO-FRA or FRA-SFO gets pajamas? I know it doesn't qualify under the 12 hour rule but have heard there might be some recent relaxing of this and at least FRA-SFO is blocked for pretty close to 12h.

Same question for SFO-TYO. Are they hooking up Polaris with PJs now? Also sub 12hr

I had high hopes, but no PJs on UA 44 (SFO-ZRH) on July 10 (I asked). Their July menu does not mention PJs anymore -- only on flights longer than 12 hours.

PJ on the previous menu was obviously a glitch.
I am more concerned that the mattress pads are omitted too. I sure hope they will stay!!!

Similar menu on UA871 yesterday. PJs werenít proactively offered but were available (along with mattress pads) when asked. FA even suggested using the L2 lav

Comparing to PJs, Iím much more concerned about the lack of sundaes despite showing on the menu.
