|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 6):|
Why not for the Pax then......The location needing a headrest would be for Aft facing seats right.
Crew seats have different design/restraint requirements than pax seats. Both fwd and aft facing F/A seats have headrests.
Excerpt from 14 CFR
(h) Each seat located in the passenger compartment and designated for use during takeoff and landing by a flight attendant required by the operating rules of this chapter must be:
(5) Either forward or rearward facing with an energy absorbing rest that is designed to support the arms, shoulders, head, and spine.
(6) Equipped with a restraint system consisting of a combined safety belt and shoulder harness unit with a single point release. There must be means to secure each restraint system when not in use to prevent interference with rapid egress in an emergency.
