In the first part of this note we study compact Riemannian manifolds (M, g) whose Riemannian product with \({\mathbb{R}}\) is conformally Einstein. We then consider 6-dimensional almost Hermitian manifolds of type W1 + W4 in the Gray–Hervella classification admitting a parallel vector field and show that (under some mild assumption) they are obtained as Riemannian cylinders over compact Sasaki–Einstein 5-dimensional manifolds.
