Will UA offer pajamas?
On a related note: I flew SYD-SFO in UA first. I had trouble pulling out that darn tray table as the meal service was beginning. The surly FA just stood there and looked at me. When I politely asked her for help, she moved on to the passenger behind me! I can't imagine her performing turndown service! (I got the attention of the FA on the other side of the cabin; she helped me with the tray table and set my table for the meal.)
On another related note: will they stop serving the midflight snack sandwich in aluminum foil?

I think this is a great idea, and hopefully it will be well received. It's the little things that make a difference, for instance when I was younger my family and I would always stay at Marriotts. I thoroughly enjoyed coming back to the room at night and finding the beds turned down and an Andee's candy sitting on top of the pillows. It's something little that made the experience exceptional.
It took me a second to "get it", but when I did, you really cracked me up!
I think that is great. In fact when United had launched it's original international First many years ago, the seat came with a oddly shaped pad that looked like a 6 foot long tongue - I thought it was a seat shaped blanket? But they had turn-down service then, and it was then I found out it was a seat cover to lay on. After about 2 years ago they got rid of it.
I will look forward to this new feature, but I bet after once I will turn it away. I don't like turn down service on a plane. I prefer to do it myself. Once I attempted to make my own bed on
Singapore, when I did the "Singapore Girls" ran in large numbers to prevent me so they could do it. They were so mortified that I was making my own bed that they ran to me as if I was trying to open a door!
But congrats to United. I hope they keep raising the bar in ALL classes!
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

Is Mexico or Colombia or Lima considered international? the A/C offered 737-9 do not have even a monitor, let alone music or any entertainment, it is like flying in a military plane, only new. The 767-3 IAH-LIM has the old configuration, they took off the 757-3 with flat beds. Far away from having that turn-down service I guess. Oh, I forgot, how about the 767-2 IAH-EZE with the old config as well. Business class good examples are AF it used to offer a flight IAH-MEX still available back in the late 90's. Have all a good weekend amigos.

British Airways and many other airlines from Europe and around the world have been doing this for a decade or more! Always late for the party, the airlines of the USA. Keep on counting the peanuts, gentlemen, as the others race ahead of you.

Turn down service? Pajamas? Where would you change clothes? What is next? Bed time story? Lullaby? Foot rub? Wake up call? Do not some A-380s have shower stalls? Lots of questions and I have not a single answer. Sorry.

Quoting Tbone354 (Reply 20): Turn down service? Pajamas? Where would you change clothes?
My thoughts exactly. I've enjoyed overnights on BA and LH in F and was given PJs. Not exactly top shelf stuff, definitely not as nice as the basic set of PJs you'd buy at Target, except some nice airline embroidery. I wore them at home a couple of times then threw them out. On the plane, I wasn't too keen on trying to change in the 1m^2 lavatory. Let's face it, even in F it seems icky to have your shoes off in the lav, and that's in addition to the awkward contortions required and the creativity you need to find places to place/hang your regular clothes while changing in there. I considered doing it under a blanket on the seat, but it's hard to even start doing that without feeling like a sex offender.
