I was at CVG last night and was watching teh Paris flight board and noticed above teh wing emergency exits a hatch mid side towards teh top. I know teh 767 has an overhead Pilot rest, but are they trying to add a FA rest and this was teh emg exit? Anyone have info on why a small hatch about 2 by 2 woudl be located above teh emg exits on teh left side?

The crew rest for the pilots are not overhead, it is located in a newly built room that takes up the first 2 rows of the middle of business class. The F/A crew rest are the last 2 rows on the right in economy

Yes is an antenna for the Sat Com system. There is one on each side. All the North Atlantic route aircraft need this with GPS so they can fly the best routes. With these two systems on the aircraft the seperation can be greatly reduced in the N Atlantic tracks. GPS/IRU give an acurate position and the Sat Com allows for easier communication than the old HF radio.

Quoting FlyDeltaJets (Reply 1): it is located in a newly built room that takes up the first 2 rows of the middle of business class.
That separate facility is found only on a few 763ERs (ships 1607 - 1613) which are required for routes like ATL-LOS, JFK-TLV, etc.. The rest of the 763ERs have seat 6C in the BusinessElite cabin reserved as the pilot rest seat.
On the refurbished 763ERs (which is most of them), that is no longer the case; the FA rest seats have been moved up to just behind seats 6A and 6B in the BusinessElite cabin. These FA rest seats now have a lot more legroom as well as footrests though they're the same width as the standard Y seats.
