Crew Rest Areas For The B787?

Does anyone know whether Boeing is going to offer B777-style crew rest areas, located over the overhead bins, with the B787? I know that the B787 is narrower than the B777. But, given that its shape is ovoid, the area over the overhead bins might have similar height to that of the B777. Given that the 787-8 and -9 are design with long-range in mind, I was wondering what Boeing is going to do crew-rest-wise.

If anyone has heard anything please share.

Thanks,

Tony

Where did you get the idea that the 787 is oval?

I am sure Boeing will have something coming comparable.

Well, it's definitely not perfectly round like the B777 and A340/A330:

So, ovoid is a good way to describe it.

N328KF,

Very funny.

But, it doesn't change the fact that the B787 will not be totally round but ovoid. Unless Boeing has very recently done a u-turn (which I very much doubt, as the test section is indeed ovoid and not circular).

I think I recall something now about it being ovoid, but in the horizontal dimension, not the vertical one as you are implying.

N328KF,

Ovoid in the horizontal dimension wouldn't make sense. the cargo hold would be too short.
Most planes that are not round are ovoid in the vertical dimension.

The interior cabin width of the B787 is only 14 inches narrower than than of the B777. The vertical difference will be less than 14 to the extent that the former is ovoid. So, I expect there will be enough space overhead for crew rest areas, but that's just speculation.

By the way, does anyone know the difference between the width and height of the B787 fuselage?

Zvezda,

to the extent that the former is ovoid.

At least someone agrees with me!  Laugh out loud

So, I expect there will be enough space overhead for crew rest areas, but that's just speculation.

I've been thinking the same. The B777 crew rest areas seem to be quite popular with the operators that ordered B777s since they were first offered. So it would make sense for Boeing to also offer them for the B787 too.

does anyone know the difference between the width and height of the B787 fuselage?

Unfortunately, Boeing's WWW site doesn't have this info.
