I don't think we ever got an answer to the question posed on an earlier thread -- what is the configuration or purpose of the nose section of the main floor of the LCF?? It still retains its windows and the front left door. So what is this section used for? A club for off duty pilots and staff enroute? I can see a billiard table in there, tho I guess that wouldn't be very practical, huh?
Another question, how many staff will be flying aboard the LCF? A pilot & co pilot of course, but any freight or loading staff? Should we submit these questions to Randy for inclusion in his blog? (lol)
Given that this thing fairly crawls through the sky, I would imaging that there's a requirement for at least two crews from Japan - SEA. So I would imagine that the lower part of the fuselage is used as a crew rest area -- and the front doors are used to get in and out of the plane
I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

Depends on what you understand under the rest. As far as I know, the main (lower) deck will be empty, probably just a bit of equipment. So, the off-duty pilots could do some stretching there. At the same time there will be crew rest module, lavatory, galley and closet on the upper deck.

Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 16): Wow. Plain white fuselage with a blue tail. How . . . inspiring.
I guess the cost to put an LCF into full Dreamliner colors would be staggering. I just hope they keep the fleet clean, that plain white is rarely a good idea on a cargo bird.
The last thing Boeing is worried about is how the Dream)Lifter looks... i mean, Come on.. LOOK at it. lol Actually i was pleasantly surprised by the livery, it was going to be just plain white all over it from what we had been hearing.
