This actually is what it might look like if airlines decided to use the crown space for premium passenger bunks!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 30, 2013:
I appreciate that you could see how large this rest area is, instead of just an individual bed photo. Very interesting indeed. Hope they have their own restrooms too :)

You could have it so much worse ... in first class

A visitor from - posted Sun June 24, 2012:
As far as I know there are emergency doors to the lower deck, so it will not take that long to evacuate.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 3, 2011:
You Sir, your photos are a thing of beauty

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Sun October 3, 2010:
Most of you have suggested strongly this space be sold to customers to generate even more revenue than the flight is , I'm sure reasonably earning. My question to you would be - Where would the crew go then? Aren't they entitled to a certain little luxury after serving everyone, half of which treat them like their personal servants.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 14, 2010:
Wow if this is a really nice layout for the crew but look's more like a train then a plane but the bunk's do look really nice

A visitor from Canada posted Sun October 25, 2009:
Now..this is niceeee! compare to the Japanese hostel style crew resting area on some of the other 777...

A visitor from Thailand posted Thu October 1, 2009:
Most dont know of this space upstairs..i didnt..

and Boeing is offering its 777 customers new innovations that take advantage of the space in the overhead area of the airplane -- the area located between the top of the stow bins and the crown of the airplane.

These innovations will allow operators to use the overhead space for crew rest stations and storage. Locating crew rest stations and storage in the overhead areas of the airplane allows the main and lower decks to be used for generating revenue, such as increased passenger seating or cargo capacity.

By utilizing the overhead space, the 777-200ER (Extended Range) and 777-200LR (Longer-Range) can save up to four passenger seats and four cargo containers, and the 777-300ER saves up to seven seats and six cargo containers. This frees up the seat and cargo space and results in additional revenue potential.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 9, 2009:
They should sell this as "beyond first class". I'd pay anything to sleep there!

A visitor from - posted Fri January 2, 2009:
because it shows what the passengers rerely or never gets to see.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 23, 2008:
Great shot and thanks for posting, the thing that puzzles me though is where are the stairs on it??? Once again great photo!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 20, 2008:
I would PAY bid money to get a seat up here, screw safety, I'd more likely die on my way to the airport on the highway, than in these luxurious suites!

A visitor from South Africa posted Wed July 16, 2008:
Wow, it does look wonderful on the 777 but trust me it isn't as cozy as it looks. I use the ones on A340's and the beds are quite hard. Although the thought of sleeping above the passengers appeals to me.

A visitor from Norway posted Sun July 6, 2008:
It would not be possible to fit any paying customers into this part of the aircraft as evacuation time would be to long. In an emergency, the steep stairs would be such a bottle neck that it would be impossible to approve it. Another solution would be for slides from this section, but that would be one big challenge.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Tue December 11, 2007:
Never knew it existed...

Thanks for posting this up Bailey! It got me thinking.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Tue October 16, 2007:
How exciting, what I would give just to be able to have a real life noisy on one of these aircrafts. I'll never get to fly in one so this website gives me the next best thing in the world. FANTASTIC. Oh how dreams are free with the internet. Thanks.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat December 30, 2006:
Amazing, Etihad are sure looking after their crew.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon June 19, 2006:
Spacious and privacy

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat June 3, 2006:
Above the cabin? I though triple 7s had only 1 deck?

A visitor from - posted Tue April 4, 2006:
Thatis a very nice photo;Iam a flight attendant and i interest in travilling abroad on that flight because there is will find all of the comfaratable...

A visitor from Norway posted Thu March 23, 2006:
Wow.. didn't know this existed. great photo

A visitor from Lebanon posted Sat March 4, 2006:
I want to live there! want to get a 777, pack it with friends and all sorts of nice people, crank up the heating so everyone is in swimming suits, bring a good dj, set up a bar, and tour the world.
We'd have to work on the insulation, though, we dont want to stop the party when some people are sleeping.
Why not throw a pool and a movie room while we're at it... we'll also need to pad it well, we dont want everyone to fly around and bump into sharp objects in the event of CAT. We'll do some zero gravity dives for fun too :)

A visitor from Germany posted Sat March 4, 2006:
Hey, looks excellent, perfect light and you captured the immense size of this hidden chamber very nice. Does anyone know if this "overlights" are real windows or just electric lights?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 2, 2006:
I agree with comment from Italy visitor. They could and should fit the whole plane out like this upstairs (or as much as possible) because its much safer than the sheer size of A380 and would make this long range airliner a pleasure to fly and sleep on. You're looking at least 20-30 suites up there selling at $1500 per bed at least. They want to do this on the 747-8 because i've seen the website talking about the suites for super first class. But definately the mini suites would be a success (a la early first class DC3.) shame they don't do this sort of thing anymore, just the big vertical seats in normal cabins.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 1, 2006:
It would be fun to have a sleepover party on one of these!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 1, 2006:
I like the crew beds,they look cool .

A visitor from Australia posted Wed March 1, 2006:
I woulnt mind sleeping here

A visitor from Italy posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Ok, this higher part of the section of the plane is probably not as much as wide as the medium part
where the pax just sits. but if there's this much useful space above, and without aiming to a 5 stars hotel like the a380 is, why they just didn't fit the whole upper deck with more comfortable seats, if not those mini suites for the ordinary pax ? it looks like the 777 can be a 3 decks plane, considering the baggage areas.. it's a pity, and believe me Im really scared of what it can be an air disaster to a fully booked a380. not that a 2 engines can be more safer, but at least it has got "NORMAL" way to flight. boeing rulez !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 28, 2006:
An unusual photograph of a seldom seen area of an airliner. It just goes to show that you are never sure what is above, next to or below you on an airliner!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Thats better than an Hotel.

Regards :D:D:D:D

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Great photo! Seems that the crew resting area is quite comfortable. And the height of the area is quite high also.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Wow that is really neat! I have seen various photos before, those didn't look NEARLY that nice. The one I saw was of a 777 as well.

So this is ABOVE the passenger cabin? I didn't know there was that much room up there. In this photo it looks like someone could stand inside there. If this is completely above the passenger cabin, that would be amazing and an awsome use of space.

I think the A340 can have something similar, but it has the facilities set up inside a cargo container which can be removed, but accessed through one of the gallies. Definitely not as cool as this, probably not as nice, and takes up a cargo pallete thing.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Very nice, better than those cattle class above!

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Very interesting, but not very comfortable. T.B.

Great shot, good mood-setting lighting.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 27, 2006:
WOW simply amazing! It looks so large in this picture, it would be interesting to know how roomy it really is.

A visitor from France posted Mon February 27, 2006:
Very interesting pix, that shows how big is the 777 fuselage. Thanks for sharing.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon February 27, 2006:
Good lighting. They should sell those to pax for big $$!
