Crew Rest Area

Where is the crew rest area located in this photo? Is it above the cabin or below the cabin at the back of the plane?

Wow! you may think i am really stupid but, i never new the cockpit crew rest area on 777 was above the cabin.

I take it cabin crew rest area is at back of plane. Is it above or below the cabin?

Also what about the 747-400 crew rest areas, where are they located? Isnt there one at the back of the plane slightly above the cabin?

Thanks for all your help!

Re: Crew Rest Area

AFAIK Boeing offers the airlines additional beds for passengers behind the upperdeck of the 747-8. Remember to read that in a magazine.
Maybe someone has a picture?

Not sure where the crew rest area is but I think its at the back.

Really never knew about this on a 77W. Looks like there's not much headroom in the rest area as it looks only half the height of the cabin. Guess they have to bow a bit when walking around or even crawl in the rest area, don't they?

Re: Crew Rest Area

this trip report of an ANA 777 shows the front F section with a normal ceiling:
How The Other Half Lives: F Class On ANA & Thai — Trip Reports Forum | Airliners.net

compare that to the ceiling of the CX 77W from this report (follow the picture links):
CX Boeing 777-300ER Inaugural HKG-ICN RT In J — Trip Reports Forum | Airliners.net

check out these specific photos (pictures 32, 33 and 34):
Shutterfly | Shared pictures not available

Shutterfly | Shared pictures not available

i don't get why CX's have bulges in F for the crew quarters compared to other 77Ws.

they seem like the same size as the normal crew rests on earlier 77Es:

Re: Crew Rest Area

It usually depends on the aircraft type. The 747 can be at the rear part of the aircraft and on the 777-200LR, it can be near the front. It all depends on the airline and their preferences. If you check the database on jetphotos, KLM has the same preference for the 747 and 777.

Re: Crew Rest Area

So CX has there rest crew for pilots only above first class on 777, and a cabin crew rest area at the back of the plane. Is this the same as KLM, or is it only at the front on a KLM 777?

as i have mentioned in my previous post, the first cabin on most 777s have the same ceiling as with the rest of the aircraft: either "flat" without the overhead bins, or with the customary drop-down center bins.

on the CX 77W however, that center ceiling on the first section "bulges" down into the cabin. here is the trip report i got from the other site again.
CX Boeing 777-300ER Inaugural HKG-ICN RT In J — Trip Reports Forum | Airliners.net
click on the link for the first flight, CX 418, then look for picture numbers 32, 33 and 34.

you will notice that the ceiling above the first seat on the center is much lower than on the rest of the aircraft.

the cockpit crew and the cabin crew always have separate quarters.

Re: Crew Rest Area

Boeing 747-400: Flight Crew Rest located on upper deck just behind the cockpit, Cabin Crew Rest located at the rear of the aircraft above the passenger cabin.

Boeing 777-200ER/LR: Flight Crew Rest located above the passenger cabin between the forward boarding doors, Cabin Crew Rest located above the cabin between the 3rd pair of exits from the front.

Boeing 777-300ER: Flight Crew Rest located same location as 777-200ER/LR, Cabin Crew Rest located above the passenger cabin between the 5th pair (last pair) of boarding doors.

And your are correct, Cabin Crew and Flight Crews have seperate rest areas, may be an FAA regulation.
