Planning a trip to SFO and need to make a quick decision regarding the long haul flights in J class. not sure what to choose (a mix between 2 airlines is possible, though, thanks to Star Alliance codeshares)... would love to try out the new UA seats from/to FRA, but was also hoping LX already uses their new J to/from ZRH. and I always enjoy LH as well, but their seats are not my favourite for such a long flight... would appreciate any assistance!

I completely agree with you - but as much as I love LH's soft product (and I really do), their J beds are nothing exciting. I can never sleep in those things and always slip down... at least with UA I know I have a real fully flat bed. but then again, their service is not really impressive, so it's exactly the opposite...

Why not choose UA then for your SFO to FRA sector ?
That way, you can make use of the flat bed and sleep through the night and a less-than-optimal service should have less impact on you. +
To my experience, food quality in Business Class on LH and LX flying out of the U.S. is notably lower than on flights to the U.S. - so having a good lunch prior to departure frpom SFO (on any carrier) might be an option ensuring that you do not get hungry during the flight - plus an earlier meal makes sleeping in the a/c easier for the body.
