LH Crew Rest Area

I have a question regarding the designated crew rest areas on the LH long haul fleet... On the seat maps on the LH website, it is easy to spot the flight crew rest areas which are located directly behind the cockpit, but where are the cabin crew rest areas?

I know that on the A340-600s, the cabin crew rest area is located on the cargo deck behind the Galley... But I can't find it on their A380s, B748s, B744s, A343s, and A333s... Can anyone clear it up?

Cheers.

Hi!!
As far as I can recall, the crew rest seats on A340-300/A330-300 are the last two eco rows on the right hand side of the plane in flight direction, of course this pertains to the N. American routes.

The rest I am not sure about.

Right below the Economy lavatory area (between the two Y/Cl compartments) downstairs in a Mobile Crew Rest container that is being loaded into the cargo hold ... just crawled out of one on the DXB-MUC run  

haven't seen the last 3 rows (H and K seats) blocked for a while now... might be for certain routes only

I think I have heard that LH's A330 crew rest area is also located on the cargo deck. It's inside the "looks-alike" cargo container.

I'm not too familiar with LH; which side is door 5 on?

door 5 are on both sides (if you refer to left and right) - otherwise, doors 5L and 5R are at the back of a 747

Don't have my manuals at hand right now to check, but when I have been inside D-ABYA someone talked about the crew rest for the cabin being as well at the door 5, above the cabin. So pretty much same location as in the 744.

Hey Wilco this is a little off topic, but you've been in the 748, and I know that the right side is the skylight, but what is on the left side in that position? A galley? the lavs? that rumored lounge?

A340/330-300/600 - Mobile Crew Rest (MCR) container in Hold 3. In the -600 it takes up so much space you can only fit 4 AKEs or 1 PMC in the aft hold (Hold 4) which must be a larger MCR or something else in front of the MCR (fuel tanks?) as on VS's -600s there is an MCR and space for 12 AKEs. Access via a closet door near the L3 door (emergency exit on the -300s).

A380 - fixed crew rest in Hold 3 on the right side. Access via what looks like a lav door on the right side of the aircraft around R3.

B747-400 - above R5 via a corner lav door. This is pretty common on all 744s if they have a crew rest.

All Airbus long-haulers have the flight deck crew rest between the flight deck and forward galley, and you have to access it by leaving the flight deck. The 744 has the flight crew rest on the left side aft of the flight deck, and is accessed from the flight deck, without leaving the flight deck. All have 2 bunks.

On another note, the 777-200 crew rest is similar to the 744, and the 777-300 also has a flight deck crew rest above the forward galley access by a lav looking door between the F cabin and the galley.

There are always slight variations to the above, but this is what you'll find most common. Now you'll just need to find where the key for the cabin crew rest is hidden

Doubtful.... At least not according to the LH A380 seat map... There is no structure around doors 3 (left or right) to represent the entrance to the crew rest area, as you mention... However, I can see, in the 1st economy class galley area located around the 2nd doors on the main deck, there is what looks like stairs in the middle bulkhead right next to the elevator... I just can't tell whether the stairs lead to the cargo hold where the crew rest area is located or a specially designed area between the 2 passenger decks... ???

Can anyone confirm?

Slight chance it may be around R4, but I'd bet more on 3. Any a/c with the MCR will have it in hold 3 and have access to it towards the aft of the wing root, except on the A380 its a fixed crew rest but same deal.
