I noticed that all United flights to Europe have a block time ending in 8 minutes. For example:

UA 941 FRA-ORD 9 hours 08 minutes

UA 959 LHR-ORD 8 hours 38 minutes

UA 949 LHR-ORD 8 hours 38 minutes

UA 909 AMS-ORD 9 hours 08 minutes

UA 947 AMS-IAD 8 hours 18 minutes

UA 935 LHR-LAX 11 hours 18 minutes

UA 943 CDG-ORD 9 hours 28 minutes

UA 901 FRA-SFO 11 hours 28 minutes

UA 951 BRU-IAD 8 hours 38 minutes

SFO-LHR, MUC-ORD flights seem to end in 3 minutes

UA 955 LHR-SFO 10 hours 53 minutes

UA 931 LHR-SFO 11 hours 03 minutes

UA 907 MUC-ORD 9 hours 53 minutes
