We consider the GI/GI/1 queue with regularly varying service requirement distribution of index ?????. It is well known that, in the M/G/1 FCFS queue, the sojourn time distribution is also regularly varying, of index 1?????, whereas in the case of LCFS or Processor Sharing, the sojourn time distribution is regularly varying of index ?????.
