I have read several posts in regards to Delta installing crew rest areas in the area above the cabin in their 767-400, and 777-200ER in order for them to operate long haul flights. Is there really space there? Does anybody have pictures of these, or diagrams? I'm confused on the concept, and I hope somebody might be able to clarify for me.

One 777 in the DL fleet has an overhead crew rest in the crown of the aircraft. 8 Bunks for the F/A's and 2 bunks for the Pilots. The pilot crew rest is located near door 1, the F/A crew rest is located near door 3.
As for the 764, there is no space available to place an overhead crew rest facility, however, the 764 can fly over 8 hours and if so, would need crew rest seats on the flights that do take them over 8 hours in length. Right now now DL flight using a 764 currently operates over 8 hours in length.

Most crew rests on the 777 are behind or at least in the general area the forward galley, in a closetlike area. f/a'S have theirs either below decks from a staircase by one of the midcabin doors, or just a sectioned off row of seats, that are usuallly first class like seats by a bulkhead. The "classic" 767's (I'd assumne that the 764 has this too) just have a sectioned off row of seats behind a curtain, or sometimes in the place of a lav or two in the back. There really is no standard one (like in the 744 it being by the tail for the cabin crew and behind the cockpit for the pilots) for a 767.
