In newer aircraft, these service compartments are often located above the main cabin, while in older models they are closer to the hold.





During exhausting flights, you often want to straighten your legs and lie down. As it turned out, such an opportunity exists, but only for crew members on long-haul flights.

Special rooms are fully equipped so that flight attendants can rest in comfort: they have lighting, air conditioning, soft mattresses and bed linen.



In newer aircraft, these service compartments are often located above the main cabin, while in older models they are closer to the hold. In any case, the premises are always securely hidden from prying eyes.

"It's a bit like Disney - we keep the magic behind a closed door, although passengers often think it's the toilet door and try to open it," says United Airlines flight attendant Suzanne Carr, who regularly flies Boeing 787, 777 and 767 aircraft. .





According to her, hidden rooms are quite comfortable, but not for tall people (above 190 cm), and to some they seem cramped, like economy seats on an airplane.

Most liners do not have full beds for crew members at all, only folding chairs curtained with a thick curtain that reflects light and partially protects from noise.

"Sometimes passengers open those curtains, so it's not necessarily the best experience," Carr admits.



According to official rules, on a flight lasting more than six hours, 10% of the time flight attendants are allocated for rest, that is, up to an hour and a half.

Finnair flight attendant Caroline Oman admits that this is crucial.

“If I can’t sleep during that hour and a half, I just listen to an audiobook or read something,” she adds.

10% від 60 - це 6 хвилин. 6•6=36. 36 хвилин - це не півтори години. Аффтор, купи новий калькулятор!
