As for the 748, it's nice to see they are doing so good but who would doubt about that, LH is a master of their business. Shame though they could not make the new business class product ready for the A380 already...

But there is indeed a typo in the article. The pictures are labelled with "Aerosoft"!

These lofts are for in flight use only - I don't believe they are designed to handle crash load when occupied. For take off and landing (emergency type situation) all occupants returns to their seats.

They were marketed to 747-8 Intercontinental operators and potential customers, but it does not appear to be of interest to them.

At least a few 747 VIP customers are installing them.

They are not occupied during takeoff and landing.

I do not believe it does. On the 747 VIP frames, there are no stowage bins because they are unnecessary. In their place, blank panels are installed that allow more ceiling room.

This has always been talked about, I believe even VS considered this back in the 90's (the idea of private bedrooms). If F class has a hard time selling, I would imagine these lofts would be even more so. The people who could afford these lofts probably can afford private aircraft travel.

I believe this area is a crew rest on the standard 748, so while the "loft" isn't offered, the area still exists.

You're just above the main deck; there are exit doors all along the main deck. The evacuation methods employed for existing crew rests are fine for in-flight use in the loft.

Quoting bikerthai (Reply 8):

On a 747 it shouldn't; the crown space is big enough. On a 787 you do lose the bins below the crew rests when they're installed. I'm not sure about the 777.

Quoting 777way (Reply 14):
Why cant this space be used for a passenger cabin on commercial aircraft.

Passengers can be located there, but not during take-off and landing due to their being only a single evacuation path (down the stairs). As such, Boeing pitched that area as beds for premium cabin customers (allowing conventional seating to be used in the main cabin as opposed to suites) but I am guessing passengers preferred staying in their suites (if Boeing had polled me, I'd prefer a suite I can sleep in than a nice seat and having to go back and upstairs to sleep).

Because the 747 was certified with passengers in the nose and passengers on the upper deck when regulations allowed only a single-evacuation path from those areas, the 747 can continue to have passengers in those areas. (I do not know why the two emergency exit doors were added to the 747-300 - perhaps due to distance from the front rows to the aft stairs?).

The 747 was not certified with passengers in the aft fuselage, so I expect such a configuration cannot be grandfathered in and emergency exit doors and slides would need to be installed and that would require significant structural changes.

The crash load requirement for an occupied loft may be more than the existing structure can handle.

The loft is basically held on the the upper crown using a bunch of tie rods. Anything more substantial may cause unwanted load interaction between the fuselage and the loft.

Something that might be acceptable over business class seats, but it would be tough to forgo those bins over economy.

I do wonder, though, whether there's room for a full-height passageway and bunks without giving up the bins.

There should be multiple paths; even the overhead crew rests have multiple paths. The 787 crew rest has a takeoff rated seat in it and two exits, even though it's designed for 3 people maximum.

Those appear to be specific to the 747-8 VIP, which has no need for overhead bins. Hence the closeout fairings.

I've been unable to find one for the 747-8 passenger model, but the Boeing 763-246C VLA Concept had an OSU and also had overhead bins.

Quoting tdscanuck (Reply 19):

Tom,

Please expound.

The 787 has two optional crew rests, an OFCR (Overhead Flight Crew Rest) at the forward end and an OFAR (Overhead Flight Attendant Rest) at the back end.

The OFCR has two bunks and one takeoff rated seat. It has two exits; the stairway and an escape hatch under one of the bunks that comes down through the ceiling.

The OFAR has six bunks and no seat. It has two exits, of very similar design to the OFCR.

Quoting bikerthai (Reply 21):
Can someone sit in those seats during take off and landing?

There is just one seat, and yes. The basis idea is that you don't have to use a revenue seat to handle the flight crew; with ~18hour endurance, the 787 is capable of lots of missions where you need four flight crew, plus a potential examiner/check airman/other 5th person. There are four seats in the flight deck; having the takeoff rated seat in the OFCR means you don't need to block out a revenue seat.

Quoting bikerthai (Reply 21):
Or is it only the seats are rated but not the seat installation?

The seat and the installation are takeoff/landing rated. As far as I know, the 787 is the only Boeing that's doing this so far.

I think they are a great idea. More space created = more rev. And if You get claustrophobic, then just don't go up there.

Also in my opinion (but the opinion of someone that sleeps in the loft of the 747 every week) these bed's would be great to sleep in as they all have the head end forward and not aft. I always find I achieve a much better sleep when I have my head forward to the aircraft, as the aircraft flies slightly nose up, if I'm trying to sleep with my head aft facing I feel like I'm sleeping with my head up. I know it sounds strange but until you experience it it's weird.

So if I was paying for F, I'd rather a nice F seat (and on a commercial side an Airline could fit more in) and then go up there to bed. Plus, if fellow Pax want to wine and down in F/J it would not disturb the passenger that want's to have uninterrupted rest.

I read somewhere on here Boeing was looking at the idea of moving Galleys to the upper deck and installing cart lifts to make extra space for more revenue seating.

If you are mega rich, would it make sense if your security detail gets good rest while traveling? If you are mega-rich it makes perfect sense to provide some perks for the people who work for you (the assumption is that the owner of the jet will have his/her own state room and the loft would be for the "underlings").

And if you are using your 747 as your lodgings while on the ground, you'll likely want your staff and security detail with you on the plane rather then in an airport hotel and needing to commute.

Yes it does, but by not using main deck space for them, it allows that space to be used for other functions.

A 747 VIP is a flying mansion. And like a mansion, you can dedicate rooms to the staff, or you can put them in another structure on the property and use the space for something else.

I think the posters are onto something when discussing the Aeroloft as 'staff sleeping arrangements.' When I looked at the video, I wanted to find a commercial application for this product. But we're talking 8 beds for a staircase that looks like it will remove 4 Y seats.

I couldn't imagine selling these beds to commercial passenger who would tolerate anything less than than a Y+ seat for takeoff, food and beverage service, watching movies/working on the laptop, and having a drink. I do not see a bed better than the top Y. While better than J, how many would pay more than J who wouldn't pay for F?

So as neat as the these Aerolofts are, I do not see a market for them on commercial airliners. Not unless far more than 8 could be put into a 748I. I would have a different opinion if 24 (or more) could be fit in a 748I without sacrificing overhead bin space for KE or LH or some new 748I operator. I somewhat doubt that is feasible...

If not then if the BBJ have both a sky loft and a crew rest in the overhead, then you can have more than 8 beds all together on a 747-8 BBJ.

In the above promo video, there is a version called Economy Suite which Boeing can probably fit 30+ of them between door 3 and 5. Y++ class? I believe Boeing needs to find a way to preserve the overhead bin space though.

The video seems to suggest that the skyloft, crew rest, and all the other types of crown suites can run all the way to the tail of the aircraft.

Very flexible use of the crown area. Only reason not to use it is if the extra weight carried can not provide sufficient return on investment.

I can see a galley or crew rest being profitable because it frees up cargo or passenger seat space. Profitability of the other options would depends on premiums services and fees.

At least they can always remove the loft if the business case does not materialize.
