United Airlines question

On long internationial flights (San Fran to Bangkok), does United provide small pillows or blankets? Or should I be packing my own?

Thanks!

Yes, they are provided in every class of service. That said, I always bring my own.

Thanks Gracie. I'm assuming they're not the best quality? So if you brought your own they'd have to fit in your carryon?

I don't think anyone would say anything if you were carrying them. Do a google search sometime and see how often these items are laundered. Gross.

The pillow is small and the blanket is thin. So I would take something else to keep you warm. I carry and wear a fleece jacket as I find it difficult to wrap a blanket around me in an economy seat, and then use the blanket provided to keep my legs warm if necessary. And, yes whatever you take would need to fit into your carry on.

You might want to also check how often the entertainment headsets are cleaned. Better yet, bring your own.
