Hello,

I heard Delta 767's will have or some do have an Overhead Pilot Crew rest. Does anyone know what part of the cabin this is in or have Pics? I'm used to seeing the pilot in the last row of first.

Most 777-200ER 's do and all 777-200LR's. There is a pilot overhead rest area at the front of the plane and a long overhead FA crew rest area in the middle of the plane.

I have heard of 767 starting to have rest area somehow. I doubt they are overhead. They are most probably bods in the belly.

On the B763's DL probably has a pilot rest just next to the cockpit before the galley. If they dont have that they will just block one seat of in Business and for the crew a couple in Y?

On my last trip i saw them. On the new config. (with updated IFE), they were towards the front (in between BizElite and coach). There were i think six seats that had "Crew Only" on the headrest. They looked like a "premium economy" type of seat.

Yeah, DL has just done a BizElite seat on the 767s and in the past on the 777s.

They have been adding the OCR to some of the 777-200ERs and the 777-200LRs are coming with it.

Noplace to put that on a 767.

The 4 seats you have seen in between first and coach are FA's seats. They removed the Mid Lav on the 767 for these seats. Prior to this the 4 FA seats were in the back of coach.

My question is besides the blocked First Class seat for the Pilot, I've heard Delta has at least one bird or more that has a new improved over cabin pilot crew rest. Well there is no room above, so I'm wondering where is it. I've not been able to get a tail number of the bird yet.

There are several birds with a pilot crew rest facility. It is not in the overhead, nor is it in the belly, it is a small cabin with bunks in it. It is where seats 1 C/D are/were in the aircraft. They removed a small storage closet that was at the 1 L/R crossaisle, a row of BizElite seats and shrinked the mid cabin galley in B/C to accomodate the change. Seating configuration is 34 BizElite and I think 181 in Y/C. A lavatory and coat closet were removed from the 767ER to make room for the f/a crew rest seats, which were referred to by a previous poster as looking like an economy plus seat.

They are for the flights that go over 12hrs block on the ER, but they are not on those routes exclusively. I think a total of 12 were to be converted.

Isn't there some sort of FAA mandate that if a flight is longer then a specific length then the crew needs to be able to rest in some sort of flat rest area (ie Lie-flat seats, or bunk beds)?
