The GFL at LHR has a section with around a half-dozen lie-flattish platform where you can doze too. Not really too private.

The four beds there are totally lie-flat. Don't know about the other Polaris Clubs.

Sounds like your friend was not doing the things many do -- feet up, snoring, lying down, ..
The problem is many do the above and once you have a rule, it is hard to selectively enforce it. Your sleeping is OK, but the other's person sleeping isn't. You get into a very subjective area.

All of the Polaris lounges have sleeping cubicles.

SFO - they are not flat. I put the blanket on the floor in the cubicle area to sleep.

Good to know about ORD. Why did they change this for SFO?

IAH- I think I looked and they had the same 3/4 length upright chairs (as in SFO) so just went and sat at the bar for three hours.

Where are they at SFO? I went to the cubicles at SFO near the showers and they are sit up 3/4 lounges and are useless for sleeping so have avoided them. Have another Polaris trip in November so if I can sleep (other than putting the blanket on the floor) will be there.

SFO has a rest area, not a sleeping area.

Yes, not possible to sleep in one of those torture devices. Not only are they not flat, they have virtually no padding.

sounds like a dragon was encountered.

There is a no sleeping policy but I always assumed it was mostly just applied to people spread out over furniture.

No. It is a no sleeping policy. Not an arbitrary no sleeping if spread out on furniture.

I don't understand why people need to go to a paid private club to sleep when they can do so at many gate areas or other airport areas where it may be allowed.

Not all of it is intentional. There are many people who fall asleep anywhere, anytime, if they are not actively engaged in something. (As a chronic insomniac, I cannot understand this, but I have observed it many, many times with people whom I know well.) When you couple that with early morning/late night flights and time zone changes, I suspect that a significant percentage of people who doze in the UC's do so by accident.

Proper UC etiquette when someone is asleep and snoring

Currently at the MCO UC there is someone who's been sleeping at the Club and snoring loudly for the past 10 minutes. The 3 UC staff members are just ignoring the snoring pax.

What's the etiquette here, proper course of action?

Throwing a pillow I'd say.

It is a medical condition so just be understanding. It is nowhere as bad as people using their speaker phones in the UC.

Agreed on the speaker phone part. Or just as bad, video games or videos without headphones.

Isn't sleeping forbidden inside the UCs?

If you were asleep and snoring, what would you expect somebody else to do?

Treat it as a game and try to throw UC snacks in his/her mouth from a few feet away...

If I was the snoring Id appreciate a gentle nudge to be woken. Kind of like someone telling me if I had food stuck in my teeth. Id be a little embarrassed but rather only be a little embarrassed by 1 person than many more. But this person may not feel the same.
