B777 Crew Rest Area?

Mon Jul 16, 2001 9:05 pm

Does the B777 have a cabin crew rest area such as the B747-400, positioned above the aft lavatory/galley complex?

AFAIK the answer is NO.

They have them behind the cockpit for the pilots and in the cargo hold for the cabin crews.

Currently, the crew rest areas on the 777 are located in the cargo hold. But the new 772LR & 773ER are being equipped with overhead crew rest areas for both flight crews and cabin crews. From what I understand, this feature will be available on the rest of the 777 line if the airlines choose it.

Check it out.

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure how you define "crew rest." When I flew on UA961, CDG-SFO, the 777 flight attendants slept in last few rows of economy. They folded the armrests and spread out... Not exactly luxurious but I guess it gets the job done!

I just flew NRT-SEA on UA, and I saw an f/a sleeping in one of the empty seats in the biz cabin. When I walked back into economy, there was an area on the starboard side towards the front of economy which had been curtained off and was a crew rest area.


(but if there is room, the seats in biz are great to sleep in!)

On the 26XX, and the 28XX series of 777s at United, lower crew rest facilities are being installed. By door 3, where a lav would be there is a door with a sign that says "Crew Only" and it opens to a flight of stairs going down to a room where multiple bunks are for crew rest. That room doesnt replace the designated crew rest facilities in economy plus, or the curtained off seat in United First.

On ELAL's 777/200 the crew rest area is located above the mid galley (next to door no 3)
This is a brand new feature (also BA is installing them on their new 777)

At BA on our 777s the rest area on some aircraft is in the lower hold and entrance is gained through a door at 3R. On the newer 777s the rest area is above and once again the entrance is at door 3R. The Flight deck currently have a bunk module at the rear of the First Cabin with its own toilet area.

This upper rest area for cabin crew is being seriously watched by both the CAA and FAA. (so I was told recently on flight by a mechanic from Cardiff). Its very comfy and crew like it. The lower hold area bunk rest is supposed to be removed if and when possible to allow for more cargo space.

DL's 777 crew rest areas will be above Door 1 for the pilots and above door 3 for the cabin crew. The pilots get 2 bunks, 2 seats and a lavatory. The F/A's get 2 seats, and 8 bunks.
