At what point did Boeing begin including the overhead crew rests on the 777? Was it mandatory after that point?

It's a Customer selected option.

You can still order a main deck or lower lobe crew rest if you want.

The overhead just makes more sense.

If you send me an email, I will send you a CD Rom on the upper deck crew rest options on the 777 for both the pilots & the Flight Attendants....

Flight Structures made door 3 overhead crewrests for the 777 before Boeing introduced their product. BA was the launch customer, followed by NG, AZ, LY and KU.

IMHO - I think it's a better product, but it is hard to adapt it to the revised center bin support structure present on new 777. Boeing's other advantange is that it is line-fit on the assemble line instead of the extra 3-6 weeks it takes to retrofit the Flight Structures crewrest.

Of course, you could use the lower deck crewrest (Flight Structures made those for Boeing), but what for, the take up valuable cargo space, are smaller and are less comfortable.
