See The Hidden Bedrooms Where Flight Crews Sleep On Long Flights
Have you ever wondered how the flight crews on long-haul flights manage to get some shut eye? We took a peek into the hidden bedrooms onboard some of the large planes that make overseas journeys to find out.
While some of the new planes are offering over-the-top first class accommodations, like the Airbus A380 shown below, many of the crew compartments are much more modest.
On a Boeing 777, for example, the crew’s sleeping area is tucked away above first class.
The cabin is accessible via a tiny, hidden staircase.
Not many passengers have seen the crew rest area. Pictured below: Boeing’s flight crew beds.
The Boeing 777 can fit up to 10 bunks along with personal storage space.
On the Boeing 777, pilots have their own private rooms which include two bed, two business class seats, a closet, sink, and bathroom.
One passenger was granted access to film the flight attending crew rest area on a Boeing 777.
Other airplanes, have slightly different setups. On this American Airlines Boeing 773, the sleeping quarters are set up more like a cruise ship. While it looks roomy, you have to duck to walk through the aisle.
